All Roads Lead to PA for March 17 Election
We’re just nine seats from flipping the PA State House in 2020, and the first step is a win for Democratic Harold Hayes in the March 17 special legislative election for PA HD-18. Join us in the most effective way to increase voter turnout: knocking on doors.

Only five hours from Boston, HD-18 is just north of Philly and includes Bensalem and parts of Bucks County. We need all hands on deck, so please sign up for as many shifts as you can!

Help us meet our goal of knocking on 3,000 doors every week before the special election on March 17.

Canvassing in FL

Canvassers Can Make Difference in Florida

Turns out, there’s a virtual pipeline between New England and Florida — a superhighway of solid gold when it comes to flipping this swing state. Volunteers taking this route are seeing the fruits of their efforts.

A Massachusetts contingent will be knocking on doors this week (February 24-28). Swing Left Leaders – including Susan Labandibar, Kate Kavanaugh, and ____ — will make time around canvassing for meetings with on-the-ground organizers; the goal is to maximize the impact of Greater Boston volunteers.

Learn more about canvassing in Florida in an online call on February 27 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm.

Vote by Mail Drive in Florida

You don’t have to travel to Florida to get Democratic votes. Every three VBM sign-ups yield one vote.


Sign up for the Florida Vote by Mail Phone Bank at Activist Afternoons on Sunday afternoons.

MICHIGAN
Michigan at risk
A win in Michigan = a Dem in the White House and an end to gerrymandering
Turn Michigan as Blue as the Great Lakes
Only by increasing the number of Democratic voters can we win the state’s 16 Electoral College votes and flip control of the Republican-led Michigan State House. We just need four seats to flip the Michigan State House, which will impact gerrymandering, the environment, and education.

Ready to flip Michigan?

  1. Learn how you can help turn Michigan as blue as the Great Lakes! Take part in New England for Michigan: Let’s Talk MI, an  online call on March 9 @ 6:30 pm – 7:00 pm.

  2. Can’t be on the call? Tell us what interests you here, and/or email Swing Left Boston Volunteer Organizer Lisa P.

  3. Consider a #DemocracyHoliday in the great state of Michigan. Learn more at Swing Left’s Michigan trip planner.
