ONE DAY MORE!
(And doesn't it feel like this?)
We must not be intimidated.
We must conquer our fears.
We must reclaim our nation.
Tomorrow is ELECTION DAY!
Polls are open from 6 am to 7 pm
Tomorrow (Tuesday, November 3) is Election Day, a day many of us have waited four long years to arrive. The polls will be open from 6 am to 7 pm. If you're in line before 7 pm, you can still vote.
I know most of you have voted already. But not all of you. If you -- or anyone you know -- has not yet cast a ballot, you and they must vote tomorrow.
If you have an absentee ballot, do not put it in the mail. It's too late. Just go to your polling place with it. You can cast it there or, if you've made a mistake, you can give it to them to discard and vote a new ballot there.
Decide right now what time you will vote. IWillVote.com can help.
Got friends who aren't that political?
Think about who you might contact who possibly has not voted yet.

Call the Democratic Party of Virginia's Voter Protection Hotline:
Like many of you, I cast my ballot early this year.
For the sake of the continuation of our Republic -- and yes, I think it's that dire -- I beg you to cast a ballot to cast a straight Democratic ticket up and down the ballot:
Elect Joe Biden to be our next President
and Kamala Harris to be our next Vice President.
Virginians, vote to re-elect Senator Mark Warner
If you live in the 8th Congressional District as I do,
vote to re-elect Congressman Don Beyer.
Vote NO on Amendment 1
to protect fair elections and voters of color in Virginia.
Don't forget to flip your ballot over and vote NO on Amendment 1!
Here are some voting resources you may find helpful.
Do you need an ID to vote in Virginia?
(Short answer: no you don't. A law I wrote this year allows you to sign under penalty of perjury you are who you say you are and still vote. But if you bring an acceptable ID, you don't have to undergo this extra step.)
Rides to the polls: The Democratic Party of Virginia has partnered with Lyft to offer free rides to the polls on Election Day. Just call 1-866-443-2678 and make your arrangements directly with Lyft.
Voter protection: If you see anyone trying to intimidate voters or stop people from voting, please call the Democratic Party of Virginia's Voter Protection Hotline: 844-4VA-VOTE (844-482-8683).

Vote No on 1!
By now, you know the NAACP, New Virginia Majority, labor organizations, and the Virginia Democratic Party strongly urge you vote No on 1:
Help get out the NO on 1 vote at the polls!
As a former Precinct Captain, I've been handing out Democratic Sample Ballots for almost 20 years now. You smile and folks take the ballot, but unless there's a local election with unfamiliar names, 99% of the voters already know who they're voting for.
This year, you can personally change hundreds of votes!
However, this year, many people still don't know Amendment 1 is on the ballot. Even those who know it's there often don't know what it does or how it enshrines gerrymandering in the Virginia Constitution.
Come talk to folks about this critical ballot measure on Tuesday. You won't regret it.
Sign up now.
I thank you again for the honor and privilege of serving you.
