  • As many of us on this site are about to vote, you need to pay attention to your down ballot races. The candidates running in your State may very well have a larger effect on you directly then the president so paying attention and learning who you are voting for is important.

    The majority of this site seems to be learning towards Sanders and if you want to see his political revolution become reality we will need Senators and house members who also agree with his policies in positions of power to vote for them.

  • S*** is type overwhelming for people who are first time voters. A lot of people are just gonna vote for president and call it a year

    Like for me I wouldn’t even know where to start with local elections

  • very unfortunate that my states senate seats are not up for election, but i doubt theyd flip anyways.

    It takes about ten minutes to research local elections. I would look into it. You may not be able to learn them inside and out like you would for the president but key policies that you agree with.

    This is my second time voting, I voted once in the 2018 midterms when I was 19 and this year I'll vote again.

    It took me a bit longer than that for all the races on my ballot but was well worth it. Definitely were some people I am glad I learned to vote/not vote for.i really don’t know how they expect people to know the majority of the people on the ballot though... most people gotta just be picking random names for like, district judges and s***

    Yeah with the ten minutes I was just meaning to learn the key issues of the people running for Governor, Congress, Senate, State Senate etc so that you can have some idea of who to support.

    OP is right, also local primaries are super important. If you're in Massachusetts, for example, y'all best be supporting Ed Markey (THE climate guy) so that Joe Kennedy and his political dynasty, fossil-fuel-exploiting ass doesn't get elected.

    Same for y'all in the bay, Shahid Buttar is trying to unseat Pelosi - it's a long shot but even a close race means they both make it to the general because of CA's jungle primaries which means at worst she gets pressure to move left.

  • there was barely anything to vote for on mine

    only one other race

    but yeah definitely people should

  • My local politicians are the homies

  • Another great local candidate and another reason to pay attention to your state races

  • let’s plug politicians to be on the look out for in these coming, tenuous times! this is only the start

  • vote independent and third party

  • KimJongUn

    vote independent and third party

  • KimJongUn

    vote independent and third party

  • NC need to get Burr tf up out of here (if the law don't get him first... but who am i kidding this is the era of Trump)

  • my missouri brother

    this man has mayor and then governor potential all over him in the future if he play his cards right
