That’s how many Texas Democrats vote in Presidential elections who DO NOT vote in mid-term elections.
Considering that Democrats lose Texas by around 800,000 votes to Republicans, that’s too many Democrats to ignore.
Forbes recently had a great article about the importance of a phone call by Ferrisa Connell, “My Grandmother Calls Me Every Election Day. Here’s Why That Matters.”
“Each November, my now 93-year-old grandmother dresses up to cast her vote in-person at her local precinct. Perhaps more importantly, she also calls each of her kids and grandchildren to remind them to vote. The matriarch of my family has set an example, because she knows the responsibility of being a citizen and the importance of making her voice heard.”
We want to be like Ferrisa’s grandmother. As part of our Get Out The Vote effort, Texas Victory Fund has a goal to make one million calls during the week of Early Voting to these low propensity Democrat voters and make sure they know when to vote. We’ll follow up with texts and stay on them until we get as many of them out to vote as possible.
We are about half way toward financing our one million call goal, and we only have three weeks to close the gap. Contribute today and let’s make these calls and texts.
Our call efforts along with all the efforts to GOTV from campaigns like Beto to your local Democratic Party will continue to build the infrastructure needed to turn Texas BLUE.
Thank you for standing with us!
