Super Tuesday Election Day Watch Parties
Super Tuesday Watch Parties
Democratic candidates are promoting their differences and strengths. Democratic voters are weighing ideological vs. who-can-beat-Trump concerns. And, given political news, Democratic volunteers are streaming to Swing Left , ready to work for democracy.

Regardless of who wins the presidential primary, we’re working hard to defeat Trump and the GOP up and down the ballot this November. A Super Tuesday house party is the perfect — and easiest! — way to meet other volunteers and get ready to take action.

Join others at one of these Super Tuesday Watch Parties.

Somerville * Allston * Newton * Salisbury * Acton * Westbrook



NEWS ALERT!

UPDATES FROM THE FIELD

Meeting with Harold Hayes in Bensalem PA
Canvassing with Harold Hayes (third from right) in Bensalem
Great Days for Canvassing in PA
“We left Boston at 7 am on Saturday, and 4.5 hours later arrived, ready to knock doors for Harold Hayes. Super friendly voters, easy turf, organized campaign team, and great response.

“Folks were really into Harold — master plumber, union man/local 690, working-man for-working-families message. Hardly anyone knew about the election, so we felt really effective.

“Having come this far, we took an extra day and toured Bucks County barns and a brewery. On our next visit, we’re heading for Valley Forge and Independence Hall in Philly.”

Come canvass with us

Weekends through March 15

Tactics for Winning in Florida
“We met with passionate voter registration leaders from both coasts. We’re learning best practices, nurturing relationships, and determining needs that New Englanders can address. Based on this info, we’re creating a Flippin’ Florida trip kit to support blue voter turnout in this critical year.”

Host or attend a Swing Left Flippin’ Florida phone bank
