*About Michigan*

As you know, Michigan’s 16 electoral college votes are critical to winning the White House in 2020.

In 2016, we didn’t get enough voters in traditional Democratic strongholds—and lost crucial votes in rural Michigan. Gaining back support in these areas (and state-wide) will be essential to winning Michigan.

Our primary objectives in Michigan are to:

  • Win the state’s 16 electoral college votes
  • Flip control of the Republican-led Michigan State House (for the first time since 2010!)

*Make It a #DemocracyHoliday*

Have you considered a Michigan #DemocracyHoliday or #vacaycanvassing?

  • Visit what Condé Nast calls America’s secret holiday coast and best beach holidays, where “the Great Lakes flow like a Springsteen song…with comparisons to Cape Cod and the Hamptons”
  • Catch the Traverse City Film Fest, founded by Michael Moore. Moore thinks Traverse City is the four-season Lake Michigan town we all need to discover.
  • Wander miles of sand beach at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore on Lake Michigan.
