Flipping the Virginia State Legislature
Talking to fellow voters is the single most effective way to increase turnout; but it is also a great opportunity to meet some really neat people and be thanked for living your values. We’ll be going back to help Josh on October 12, 26, and November 2-5. Email IndivisibleHoCoMD@gmail.org to get in on the action!
The entire Virginia state legislature is up for election this fall. Volunteers from Maryland played an important part in flipping 17 state seats in Virginia in 2017 and we have a chance to flip the whole state blue this time. Just as we did in 2017, we will be partnering with Sister District and SwingLeft to flip state legislature seats in Virginia in fall 2019.
We have 3 objectives:
- Fauquier County. Both a House seat and a Senate seat are potential Red to Blue flips in this county, so anything you do here will have double the impact. Click here to get involved.
- Virginia House of Delegates District 28. Joshua Cole lost by 82 votes in 2017 – and at least 83 voters received ballots for the wrong race. So this race is definitely winnable if we work hard. Phonebanking and canvassing to start in June. Learn more about Joshua Cole and the area and email IndivisibleHoCoMD@gmail.comand ask to be added to the Red2Blue team.
- Virginia House of Delegates District 51. We helped Hala Ayala flip this seat in 2017 – now we need to make sure she keeps it. Phonebanking and canvassing to start in June. Learn more about Hala Ayala and the area and email IndivisibleHoCoMD@gmail.comand ask to be added to the Red2Blue team.
