Polls on the 2016 election have tightened dramatically in recent days. Although Clinton has established an edge over Trump in early-voter turnout in several key swing states, that edge is slim so far. According to a recent ABC News/Washington Post poll, the race between Clinton and Trump is in a dead heat right now. The Chicago Tribune’s analysis: the two candidates are all but tied.
That’s why, on Election Day, we need to come out in full force and vote to elect Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine. There is so much at stake.
But it’s not just about the presidential ticket. Up and down the ballot, women’s health champions are facing opponents who threaten to take us backward on access to birth control coverage; backward on access to safe, legal abortion; and backward on access to care at Planned Parenthood health centers. Early voting numbers show that more work is needed to energize progressive voters and get them to the polls in states across the country.
Bottom line: So much is at stake. Candidates who will fight for our reproductive health and rights need your vote. The communities these candidates will protect need your vote. And the people Donald Trump would hurt need you to hold him accountable for his sexism; his racism; and his dangerous, backward policies.
Make a Plan to Vote
This time next week, our country will have elected a new president. It’s your duty to have voted and been a part of it. But you can’t get yourself to the polls without a plan. In fact, research has shown that people who make a plan to vote are more likely to actually turn out on Election Day.
