Early voting has already started. You have until Election Day on November 3 to make your voice heard. Voting is our power to show that we are fed up with the status quo and want leadership that will get us out of the pandemic crisis, recognize that climate change is real and do something about it, protect abortion access, and defend the rights of working families. It is in your power to change the status quo with your vote!
The Virginia Progressive Voters Guide Will Help You Find Progressive Candidates In Your Area
But first, we need you to get informed on who is running for office in your area. So, we crafted this amazing Virginia Progressive Voters Guidewith recommendations on progressive candidates running in all 11 congressional districts, local races, the U.S. Senate race, and the presidential race, of course. Virginians will also vote on a constitutional amendment to determine how legislative district maps are drawn this year. Spoiler Alert: Vote NO on Amendment 1. The staff at Progress Virginia spent a couple of months researching all of these races by conducting careful analyses of the candidates and compiling them all in the Progressive Voters Guide! We did y’all good by serving up this guide!
