One year out -- Donate to organizations that are dedicated to getting out the vote, building a campaign and hiring volunteers for canvassing. Many states make it impossible to vote close to election day so this works needs to be done way in advance. Especially look for organizations that are registering young voters. They are the most likely to vote Democratic.
Throughout the year -- Participate in special elections. If you live in the state, get involved in volunteering, hosting parties, running call banks, writing postcards to voters. If you do not live in the state, donate across state lines to candidates and get involved in national efforts such as postcard writing. Before now, many of us thought that we could just work locally and that would be enough. Now we know, painfully, that gerrymandering and voter suppression in other states has a huge impact on our lives. Working across state lines is essential now.
Throughout the year -- Start donating to candidates so they can build effective campaigns. Emily's List is dedicated to supporting women candidates all up and down the ballots. Look at this site, Boomers for Democracy, for candidates and then donate via ActBlue, or directly, or any way that works for you.
Starting now -- Talking to others, with respect and warmth, is one of the best ways to reach voters. Use this site, Boomers for Democracy, and others to get facts straight and learn to deliver concise, accurate information about issues. And above all, take the time to listen.
