Sign Up to Postcard at Home With Sister District New Trier and Help Flip Wisconsin & Michigan

Sister District New Trier is supporting Indivisible Chicago and their mission to send 2 million get-out-the-vote postcards to Michigan and Wisconsin before the November election.

Vote-By-Mail Push with Indivisible Illinois

We need to plan nationally and statewide (even in IL) for the security of our votes in November 2020! 

1. CALL ILLINOIS LEADERS!

Ask our state legislators, Governor Pritzker, election officials, and ISBE to remove any barriers to receiving, tracking, and returning an absentee ballot. All jurisdictions should include envelopes with prepaid postage for all voters. 
If vote-by-mail legislation is not passed by the end of May in IL, there will not be time to organize another option, and an expanded vote-by-mail program will not go forward. 
  • Script & Contact information to call on your own here
  • Sign up to phone bank with Indivisible IL here

2. KEEP CALLING CONGRESS THIS WEEK!!!

Indivisible National has created a tool to help us call our members of Congress — including Democrats — today and demand that they fight to include these emergency protections for our election in the next coronavirus bill. 
Sign Up For Indivisible’s Payback Project

Indivisible’s  Payback Project  is a plan to target TEN Republican Senators up for reelection and take back the Senate majority. Defeating this many Senate Republicans will not be easy. It will take a massive awareness campaign to expose the truth of their complicity to voters, and a growing grassroots army on the ground ready to ensure their Democratic opponents have the funding and people necessary to knock doors, activate voters and win.

Indivisible has a comprehensive, four-pronged approach to make sure Republicans Senators are held accountable for their actions, their votes, and their enabling of Donald Trump.  Click here to learn more and get involved

One way to take action is the Payback Project’s a peer-to-peer textbanking outreach campaign to engage voters across the target states to take action with Indivisible groups in their area and mobilize locally to flip their Senate seats.  SIGN UP  right now to text and help them win back the Senate this fall.
