Hello Democrats and happy Friday!

Let me start by wishing a very happy second night of Hanukkah to all who celebrate! No matter how you spend the holiday season, I hope each of you will be able to enjoy positive, energizing time with the people who you care for most. And I can’t stress enough how important it is that we all relax and recharge heading into 2024! 

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, we need everyone fired up and ready to go come January. That’s because we’re going to make millions of substantive get out the vote contacts next year and ensure our candidates have what it takes to win! 

That means we will need volunteers, and lots of them!

If you haven’t already, I thoroughly encourage you to take the time to demonstrate your commitment to volunteering before the end of the year. That way, WA Dems organizers and your local party leaders will know you are on board as a top-level partner next year and we can work together for maximum GOTV success! 

You can sign up as a Party volunteer here – and I also highly recommend plugging in with your county and LD Democratic organizations – as they will be the most consistent source of on the ground volunteer opportunities.  

Thank you so much for standing with us as a critical member of our Democratic team. We are strongest when we stand together and we’re thrilled to have you on board!
