DemDaily: Vote. Volunteer. Virginia.
November 5, 2017
In perhaps the most important election of 2017, all eyes are on the Virginia Governor's race and the tight contest between Lt. Governor and Democratic nominee Ralph Northam and former RNC Chair and Republican nominee Ed Gillespie - this Tuesday, November 7th.
You can still Volunteer (text "VIRGINIA" to 21333) or attend an event between now and Tuesday, but make sure you vote!
We know, all-too-well, that one vote makes a difference - and the repercussions in this race go beyond Virginia's borders.
