Be Part of the Swing Blue Alliance Success Story
This election is within our grasp. Dems WILL win many of the US Congressional elections IF enough Dems vote. What's more, YOU can help make that happen with just a couple of hours between today and November 8.
You are what stands between the MAGA horde and the alternative: a Democratic Congress and women’s rights, racial equality, and freedom to vote in swing states.

It's Neck and Neck ...
The races for both Senator Hassan and Congressman Pappas are very close, and the outcome in New Hampshire is far from certain. If you want Dems to maintain control of the Senate and House in DC, then you'll jump on these opportunities to get out the vote in NH.
Pick two of the following events in the next 10 days and lend a hand so New Hampshire swings blue.
Get Out the NH Vote Door to Door
Join the Swing Blue Alliance canvassing brigade in New Hampshire. In fact, bring a friend and make a day of it! Opportunities to work with experienced canvassers abound.
Due to gerrymandering, Democratic US Senator Susan Wild’s new district leans Republican by 4 points. She and her opponent are neck and neck. However, as we’ve seen time and again (see the first article), polls can be fickle, and Wild has proved herself in two terms in Congress.
What will it take?
Given the population in the redistricted constituency, all Wild needs to win is a bigger Democratic turnout.
If you are willing to spend a couple of hours on the phone talking to friendly, easy-to-motivate Democrats, you can help push Wild over the top. You’ll be calling experienced volunteers who have only ten days to step up and either canvass or work the polls. Not a big ask in this political environment.
The PA Dems know that Democratic control of the House and Senate could very well depend on good organization. Successful get-out-the-vote campaigns are critical in these days before the election.
Swing Blue Alliance leader Susan Labandibar took on the challenge. She temporarily transplanted herself to Reading, PA, where she became a field organizer for the PA Dems.
Since then, a band of dedicated SBA callers have worked diligently with Susan to recruit local volunteers in a quest for Democratic voters. Ten SBA callers made 2,449 volunteer recruitment phone calls!
In fact, Susan and her cohorts exceeded the PA Dems' volunteer recruiting goals! Last week, SBA was third most prolific recruiting team among the PA Dems volunteers.
In addition, fourteen SBA volunteers are making the trek to Reading where they're knocking on doors and helping Susan prepare for canvass launches. Susan would also like to thank the many volunteers who've kept the wheels turning on the SBA bus while she is organizing in PA.
