Spread the word by helping with our phone bank!
It’s important for everyone to understand how important this election is and how to make their voices heard as safely as possible. This election is about far more than the presidential primary. Voters will also select state Supreme Court of Appeals justices and local school board members, among many other races. (Our clean elections coalition, WV Citizens for Clean Elections, is launching a website next week to provide you with information about the judicial elections and the candidates so that you can make an informed decision when you vote. Stay tuned for more about this resource and how you can help spread the word.)
