BOOMERS FOR DEMOCRACY

 Campaign to Give, Donate, Give!

Our guide includes information on deadlines to request and return mail ballots, whether a specific excuse or a witness signature is required, whether the state will send ballots or applications for ballots to all voters, and links for where to request mail ballots and find further instructions about the process. We'll keep this guide updated as states announce any further changes to election procedures or dates, and you can stay on top of any changes to election timing by bookmarking our calendar of 2020 primary elections here.

JUST TELL THE TRUTH AND DON'T SUPPORT LYING,

 

“The simple step of a simple courageous man is not to partake in falsehood, not to support false actions,” Alexandr Solzhenitsyn said in his mesmerizing 1970 Nobel lecture. “Let that enter the world, let it even reign in the world—but not with my help.”

Solzhenitsyn went on to say that writers and artists can achieve more; they can conquer falsehoods. “Falsehood can hold out against much in this world, but not against art,” he said.

But art, as powerful as it is, is not the only instrument with which to fight falsehoods. There are also the daily acts of integrity of common men and women who will not believe the lies or spread the lies, who will not allow the foundation of truth—factual truth, moral truth—to be destroyed, and who, in standing for truth, will help heal this broken land.

4 months and 7 days until November 3, 2020, let's do everything WE can to get out the vote and hear from the majority of Americans. We have the power to leave a safe, prosperous, healthy, clean, honest, democratic nation to the next generation of Americans -- our children and grandchildren.

EPIC BATTLE FOR DEMOCRACY HAS BEGUN!

SEE INDIVIDUAL STATES -- 50 STATES PAGE --  FOR UPDATES ON VOTER SUPPRESSION AND VOTER SUPPORT

This is the last ditch for Republicans -- to suppress the vote of millions of Americans in order to continue their minority rule. This is undemocratic, unfair, misguided and ultimately will fail.

Let's get to work!
