“Get to the polls on Election Day. Your Vote is Your Voice. Be Heard.”
Educating Our members
On November 4, 2014, there will be elections for 36 governors’ offices, 36
U.S. Senate seats and all 435 House seats. Equally important, control of
nearly every state legislature will also be at stake. In this year’s all-important
elections, the best way to overcome the corrupting power of money in politics
is by organizing and harnessing the strength of our numbers. We need to come
together to make our voices heard and to elect leaders who will work to (1)
rebuild the middle class and (2) recast the economy so that it works for all of us
and not just the one percent. Please get out and vote and make sure your family,
friends and co-workers exercise their right and responsibility to vote.
