Exercise Your Right to Choose & Choose Democrats!
The Supreme Court's recent overturn of Roe v. Wade set civil rights back more than 50 years. And, they've only just begun.
But they didn't take away our most important right to choose - the one women fought hard for and finally won in 1920 - the right to vote! We can choose a party that fights to protect all of our rights or the party that takes them away. We can choose a party that defends democracy or one that threatens it. We must all exercise that right in November and elect Democrats to all levels of office. Our rights depend on it, our democracy depends on it.
The best way to get involved is to register to vote. Allow your voice to be heard at the voting booth. Check your registration status, even if you are already registered. Read up on the laws regarding registration and party affiliation. And, get out the Vote!
