TRUMP = THE HIGHEST TAXES IMAGINABLE
Trump’s platform – if you take away all the stuff about hating literally everyone in the country who is not him – comes down to tax cuts. Let’s talk about taxes that are not finiancial.
How about the tax on every third thought we have, that now has to be about Trump, if he’s president?
How about the happiness tax? What kind of cut in your daily happiness are you willing to take?
How about the laughter tax, where it’s tougher to laugh at things, because any joke rocket now has to be powerful enough to escape the gravitational pull of the daily ambient tragedy in the country.
THOSE are real taxes. I can’t afford those taxes. None of us can.
So let’s act now to beat Trump – by doing the most effective thing you can – registering more new Democrats!
Help us win the first two big elections of the year! They’re both in 19 short days, on 2/13. One is swing House district NY-03, where we have to fumigate the Santos Stench by electing Democrat Tom Suozzi. The other is PA State House district 140, where electing Democrat Jim Prokopiak will flip the TIED State House blue! Sign up for our phone banks and more here at Volunteer Opportunities!
– Jason Berlin, Founder, Field Team 6
HOW TO REGISTER FOLKS AT THE GROCERY (OR I’LL TAKE MERCH FOR 400, ALEX)!

GO CALIFORNIA VOTER DRIVES!
On Tuesday, Voter Drive Leader extraordinaire Fiona Carroll (right), Field Team 6 evangelist Suzi Dietz (left), and super volunteers Cheryl Bridges and Annie Cwieka staked out Saddleback College in Orange County, CA, to register new Democratic voters for CA-49’s Mike Levin (D) as well as Democratic candidates for swing district CA-47 and more. Kids got registered! Registered voters got educated! And a great time was had by all! JOIN US at an existing voter drive, or train up and lead your own – they’re not only profoundly satisfying – they’re one of the best ways to win in November!
SATURDAY, JANUARY 27: KEEP PUSHIN' FOR NY-03!
Let's take a moment to revel in the Great Ousting of George Santos, shall we?
Okay, revel over. Now the race is on for the NY-03 House seat, and we've gotta register new voters for Democrat Tom Suozzi (SWAH-zee, rhymes with "Fozzie")! The special election is February 13, and with a registration deadline of February 3, we need to HUSTLE to make sure we register enough left-leaning voters to put Suozzi over the top!
Our powerhouse partner, NY for Biden+Harris, is co-hosting a phonebank with us to reach eligible voters who are likely Dems. All training provided! Sign up HERE to join in the fun on Saturday, January 27, from 11a-1p ET!
Don't want to hop on the phone? Give your all to NY-03 by hopping on a zoom, hanging out with your fellow activists, and writing postcards! Click HERE to sign up and join us for some cardin' camaraderie on Wednesday, January 24 from 2-4p PT.
And we'll keep shouting out to our BYOPers and Text Arcade-rs who have texted every unregistered, likely Democrat in our NY-03 data, not once, but twice! Much love to you all! (And if you haven't yet, join the BYOP Force For Good HERE!)
WEDNESDAYS AND THURSDAYS: 140 REASONS TO TEXT, PHONEBANK, AND POSTCARD PENNSYLVANIA!
There is a super high-stakes election around the corner in Pennsylvania's State House District 140! The State House is currently tied at 101-101. That means whoever wins a Special Election on 2/13 will determine which party controls the House. And the voter registration deadline is 1/29 – in just four days! So here's how you can help register new Democrats to win this election:
Phonebank - Thursdays, 4-6p ET, sign up HERE.
Free BYOP texting - join a training Thursdays, 6p ET, or start now HERE.
Postcarding - if you're already trained, start now HERE. But remember, you have to send them *immediately* to make sure they arrive no later than 1/29.
Join us however and whenever you can, so YOU can be the keystone in our effort to keep this Keystone State House District blue!
MAKE EVERY DAY NATIONAL RUN FOR OFFICE DAY!
Sure, National Run for Office Day was Tuesday, January 23, but it turns out EVERY day is a good day to think about running for office! Why? Because the only way to turn our government into one that represents all of us and our ideals, is if more new people get into politics and run for something!
That may sound like a daunting task, but object permanence once was daunting for us too, and we totally nailed that. And for this task you have help! Field Team 6 is proud to partner with Run For Something to encourage anyone who ever had the inkling, to go ahead and run for office! Check out the Run for Something website HERE. You'll find all kinds of information about how you can get involved with the movement... and before you know it, you might find yourself on a ballot! maybe even run for office yourself!
THURSDAY, JANUARY 25:
IT’S SARSAPARILLA TIME AT THE FIELD TEAM 6 SALOON!
That's right, pardner, it's time to push on through the swingin' doors to another Field Team 6 Saloon!
Our Saloon night is an every-two-weeks Zoom Happy Hour where you can raise a glass of whatever you choose to pour yourself, and share some laughs, tears, fears, and tall tales with your friends and fellow activists, including Field Team 6 Founder Jason Berlin! Drinks are on you, so no tipping necessary -- it's the best thing since the ten gallon hat!
Sign up HERE and join us on Thursday, January 25 from 5-6p PT. We'll save a stool and a sarsparilla for ya'!
THURSDAY, JANUARY 25: WE MISS YOU, BESTIES!!!
Nothing makes us happier than hanging with our volunteers, so when we don't see them, we miss them madly! And now that we're heading into the most important election of our lives, we also need them! Oh sure, we could just pine away, sighing over screen shots of our zoom meetings gone by... but we'd rather reach out and reconnect! And with your help, we can do it.
We're phonebanking to former phonebankers and asking them to phonebank once again. We won't ask you to say it five times fast, just trust us, it works. Please click HERE and join us this Thursday, January 25 from 1-3p PT for the chillest, most friendly phonebank ever, 'cause we're callin' our chums. It's a guaranteed love-fest!

BVG FUNDRAISER RECAP
On January 20, 2024, friends of Blue Voter Guide gathered in the living room of Will Baum and Cody Tucker for a fundraiser for the ages: Ride with the Guide. Despite the rainy Saturday, the atmosphere was electric as an array of inspiring speakers shared messages about protecting, saving, and defending our democracy. These included: Assembly member turned Congressional candidate Laura Friedman; the remarkable Sarah Jakle (DemocraShe); the irreplaceable Jess Craven (Chop Wood, Carry Water); the charismatic Sylvia Salazar of Tono Latino, who had traveled down from Portland for the day; Field Team 6's own founder Jason Berlin; and featured speaker Wayne Liebman, founder of the Blue Voter Guide, who showed us how the unique guide would drive up turnout in 2024 by putting voters first, enabling fast, smart, pro-democracy choices up and down ballot, enabling us to elections win at all levels. The guide got a much-needed fundraising boost! And the conversation continued until long after dark, a testament to the shared values that make us a cross between a (peaceful) army... and a family.
