WASHINGTON, DC — On the heels of their largest ever get out the vote efforts this weekend, Planned Parenthood advocacy and political groups have announced that they and their supporters and volunteers on the ground have knocked more than 2 million doors and made more than 1 million calls in support of the Women are Watching electoral program. In key states across the country, the groups have deployed more than 2,500 canvassers, who are working with thousands of volunteers to get out the vote.

Over the weekend, supporters and volunteers wearing pink T-shirts attempted to reach more than 260,000 voters at the doors and made more than 88,000 phone calls to ensure drop-off voters knew the high stakes for women’s health this election and had the information they needed to get to the polls onNovember 4.

Today, Gabrielle Union, a steadfast supporter of women’s health and Planned Parenthood, released a video talking about why it’s important to vote. You can watch the video here. Earlier this year, she released a Women are Watching t-shirt designed to educate young women on what's at stake for their rights in the election and encourage them to get involved. You can view the shirt here.

You can learn more about Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s online and mobile tools to help supporters get out the vote on the Women are Watching blog here.

You can see some photos from GOTV weekend on Facebook here. Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Action Fund was in Wisconsin on Saturday, North Carolina on Sunday and is making calls today in Florida.


This election presents a huge opportunity to ensure that millennials and communities that have been traditionally underrepresented, marginalized, and discriminated against all get out the vote. In 2010, only 46.2 percent of women who were eligible to vote did so. Unmarried women, women of color, and young people ages 18-29 will be an increasingly sizeable component of the electorate this year as they represent over half of the voting-eligible population.
