Another election has come and gone and millions of Americans went to the polls to vote at the local, state and federal levels on the issues and candidates that mattered most to them. While they were working to make those important decisions, millions of dollars of secret money poured into the 2014 elections from dark money groups which hide the identity of their donors, seeking to buy our elected officials and distort our elections.
If you voted this year or helped others in your community cast their votes, thank you! While a few races remain up in the air and final tallies are being counted, many new federal, state and local leaders are preparing for their positions and taking into account your vote and the issues you and millions of Americans weighed in on. Now, we must hold our elected officials accountable by continuing to be in regular contact with them on the issues we care about.
This is it, the day we’ve been waiting for – Election Day! We hope you’ll join us by voting today to weigh in on the issues important to you. While you’re at it, please ask your friends and family to cast their ballots too.
In states all around the country, early voting periods are underway. Yesterday, I took advantage of Georgia’s early voting in anticipation of a final election season trip to Ohio, where that state’s early voting will continue over the weekend.
Election Day - Tuesday, November 4 - is less than a week away. Thanks to early and absentee voting opportunities, voters across the country are already casting their votes in thousands of local, state and federal elections, and we hope you plan to join them.
