A big shout out to the members of our newly formed Electoral Engagement teams! Over 75 Olympia Indivisiblers have already signed on to help Make the Difference and Win in 2018. Here you see us getting things organized at our second all-teams-meeting this past Monday—and a brisk, lively, action-packed time was had by all!
We are off and running because Democracy is NOT a spectator sport! Want to join? Take a look at the team descriptions below, pick the team on which you want to serve, and get in touch via the “Join” link (be sure to specify in the comment field which team you want to join and whether or not you are already a member!).
Expand the Electorate: GOTV (Voter Registration) expands the electorate, combats voter suppression, and gets out the vote.
Endorsements Team creates and puts into action tools and/or events that enable Olympia Indivisible (OI) members to compare and choose between candidates running for federal, state, and county positions in 2018.
Federal Elections in CD-10 Team coordinates Olympia Indivisible’s campaign support for the primary and general races for candidates at the federal level in CD-10 who OI has endorsed. The team will, if possible, build coalition with other Indivisible chapters in CD-10 to amplify this work and make it more efficient.
State and County Elections/Legislation in CD10 Team (SCEL) coordinates Olympia Indivisible’s campaign support for candidates at the state and county levels within CD 10 who OI has endorsed. They will also advocate for legislation, initiatives and rules supported by OI through the current short State legislative session and on into the next session. In addition, they will build coalition with other Indivisible chapters in CD-10 to amplify this work and make it more efficient.
Flip CD-03 Team works in collaboration with Indivisible chapters in CD3 to flip this district and replace Jamie Herrera Beutler with either a progressive Democrat or independent who will caucus with Democrats.
