Organizing for ’18

The stakes couldn’t be higher in 2018.

We can elect representatives who fight for our values. We can build fairer districts and make huge strides towards ending gerrymandering. And we can pass statewide ballot initiatives that expand Medicaid, restore voting rights, and make our communities safer. On November 6, 2018, we have a once-in-a-decade chance to fight back.

That’s why we launched Organizing For ’18, a new program that will turn grassroots energy into action between now and Election Day. Get involved today.

If you're looking for information or reminders on key voter registration dates and deadlines in your state, enter your info here and we'll follow up with everything you'll need to know.


 

Our Focus

OFA volunteers are organizing in every corner of the country, but expand the sections below to see which districts, states, and ballot measures are priorities for 2018 and how you can help.

In key House races across the country, we have an opportunity to replace members who have worked against the will and well-being of their constituents with leaders who will actually fight for the people they represent.

It’s time to elect people who will reject cynical partisan politics, stand up to special interests, and give a true voice to their constituents. In these target districts, OFA volunteers are Organizing for ’18 to make that a reality.

Targets: AZ-02, CA-04, CA-10, CA-21, CA-25, CA-39, CA-45, CA-48, CA-49, CO-06, IA-01, IL-06, KS-03, MN-02, MN-03, MO-02, NC-09, NC-13, NJ-11, NY-11, PA-01, PA-06, PA-07, TX-07, TX-23, TX-32, WI-01

Learn more about these target races

For too long, partisan insiders and conservative politicians have rigged districts in their own favor—creating a system where they’re not accountable to their own constituents.

This year is our chance to fix it. In 2018, state-level elections will largely determine the process of how states redraw their congressional maps after the 2020 census.

Winning these elections is crucial to building a more fair democracy. OFA is strategically organizing to make a difference in these races.

Learn more and see the target races

In many states this November, voters can make an immediate impact on ballot measures.

We’re already building local teams to get the word out on these important initiatives, and Organizing For ’18 will play a crucial role in educating voters and turning out the vote.

All of this is possible. But it hinges on the most sacred right we have: the right to vote.

Say “I Will Vote” on November 6, and get ready to make change happen.
