We want to thank you all for voting and getting out the vote in the elections this week. Whether you attended our phone banks; made calls from home or with friends; posted on your Facebook page; liked our Facebook page so our election information could reach more members; or called folks from home and reminded them to vote, your efforts contributed to the tremendous success the Democrats had on Tuesday.
A special shout out to our top callers to voters:
1. Tricia Augustine;
2. Rachael Hines
3. Kimberly Hoover
You all ROCK!
We can't say it enough, voting and getting others to do the same is what makes the biggest difference! Tuesday was not just a great night for Democrats but it was a great night for America!
In addition to winning both Virginia and New Jersey Gubernatorial elections, there were some stand out achievements that should be noted. Virginia elected Danica Roem to the House of Delegates, who will be one of the first openly transgender elected officials. Offended by a sexist post during the woman's march by New Jersey Freeholder John Carman, 32 year old first-time candidate Ashley Bennett decided to run against him and won! An unprecedented number of House of Delegate seats in Virginia were flipped by pro-choice women. Several women and minorities were elected around the country proving to the world what America is all about diversity and inclusion.
There are more critical special elections coming up that we will be phone banking for. Shockingly, the special election for an open seat in the US Senate for Alabama is too close to call, despite the accusations of pedophilia by Roy Moore. Make sure all your Alabama voters friends and family get out to vote for Democratic candidate Doug Jones!
If you have not signed up for our free online call portal please contact our Chairwoman Patricia Reed at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will help you get started.
Most Americans aboard agree that we need to replace citizen-based taxation with territory based. Republicans Abroad are putting forward a proposal for this tax reform. Let's work in a bi-partisan manner to push this initiative.
Please sign the petition here, or send a postcard (like the one below) by September 30th!
Before the holidays officially start, let's meet up to toast all the wonderful things DALCC has accomplished this past year. New to Democrats Abroad? Don't be shy; our monthly drinking nights offer a casual environment to learn how Democrats Abroad in Singapore (and around the globe) are helping to make a difference back at home in the States. We're a friendly group of people who love to discuss policy and politics. In addition to talking, we'll have postcards on hand so you can write your representatives.
Please make sure to like our Facebook Page to stay up to date with the latest news for DALCC.
