The Stand

Just two more days ’til Election Day: GOTV!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

UPDATED (Nov. 4, 2018) — Thank you, union volunteers! Hundreds of you stepped up to contact thousands of union households around Washington state over this past week to urge them to vote, and to support labor-endorsed candidates. (Above, volunteers gather for Saturday’s WSLC / MLK Labor Player’s Choice neighborhood walk at the IAM Hall in Auburn.)

Now, you just need to make sure that you and your family members mail your ballots by Tuesday!



As Kenny Loggins sings, “This Is It.

Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 6. That means voters across the state have just a few more days to fill out and mail — postage free! — their ballots for this fall’s critical election. That also means this is the home stretch for Labor Neighbor, the Washington State Labor Council’s grassroots voter education and mobilization program, to Get Out The Vote!

There are still several opportunities for union volunteers to participate in phone banks and neighborhood walks to share information with fellow union members about which candidates have earned labor’s endorsement and why. Make a difference! RSVP today to volunteer for one of the following efforts or email WSLC Field Mobilization Director Cherika Carter or call her at 206-384-1133.
