OK. Plan B. What can we rank and file Democrats do to help those fellow Democrats in Red

controlled States when it comes to making their votes count?

ID's seem to be an issue with the GOP. OK, how can we help voters get ID's? I'm aware of all the reasons someone might not have one, but how can we change that? Can we organize groups to help people get ID's? Rides to the facility that issues ID's?

The GOP in these States appear to be limiting polling places. How can we get people to these polling stations? Cars, buses, trains?

EVERY VOTE COUNTS. The DEMS must win big in November. They need to take the Senate, and straighten this shit out once and for all.

1. K&R, we can brute force through mail again but we have to start EARLY. Ruck Fodd showed the

... dems are in the +2 generic even though Biden's poll numbers are low (mostly among PoC due to voter rights but that can be fixed) which means Americans aren't going for the crazy still.

My idea

stoke (stick): with democracy ending and Putin's Whore becoming the speaker of the house which the GQP can legally do

Carrot: we can vote in public option for health care and get in voting rights to protect the democracy with two more senators and keep the house.

Flood all info mediums with this message for two months and watch all MAGA walk into worshiping Putin's Whore with all their might.

Then ... after most Americans are scared shit less of him leading the country again

Offer them something the GQP wont ... but start now that we're winning generic with a low approval president

3. As Stacy Abrams said after Georgia enacted cruddy laws-- Educate voters.

 

And contribute however you can.

If we don’t turn out big for election, we’ll spend the next few years claiming “We was robbed.”

4. I was thinking along the same lines

Michelle Obama is going to register 100,000 new voters.

At some point, someone has to encourage those newly registered voters to get to the polls.

If we could get the names/phone numbers of new voters, maybe we can call or text to encourage them to vote.

Maybe there will be other superstars who will make it a project to register 100,000 voters (or some other number they are comfortable with).

5. yet another thought

Who are the toadies republicans are putting in election office positions? Dig up backgrounds and watch these people. Let them know they are under public scrutiny.

One thing about the internet is that it is full of armchair detectives who can pull up a lot of data.

6. an idea that may piss of the gqp royally: pay for voter ids on behalf of the Democratic party

Given that the gqp claims voter id is apolitical, surely they wouldn't object to the Democratic Party paying for people's IDs?

I'm sure the people who received their new free id would remember kindly the party that helped get it for them.

10. We need to keep things local when it comes to many of these places

We can donate money but you need to let the people that live there do the other work such as driving older people and others that need assistance to the polls.

15. Great questions. Seems to me candidates should spend less money holding

rallies with people who are already going to vote for them anyway and spend more money on registering and gotv. Demographics is on our side...need to reach them and remove barriers to information, registering, voting.
