Friday, July 26 - Canvass in IL-06 / Indivisible Lakeview + Lincoln Park with Moms Demand Action / Deputy Voter Registrar Training

Actions You Can Take Today

Action 1: Canvass for Sean Casten in IL-06

Sean Casten is running for Congress in the IL 6th Congressional district to unseat current incumbent Peter Roskam.

Sean, a scientist and successful renewable energy entrepreneur, is much more in tune with his district than the incumbent Congressman Peter Roskam, who has not held a public town hall with his constituents in 10 years. Roskam is the 4th most senior GOP Congressional leader and was one of the principal architects of the recent regressive tax cut legislation.

In the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton won this District by 7 points, so there is hope that Sean will be successful in unseating Roskam. The DCCC has identified this race is one of their top 10 Red to Blue races in the country and are actively supporting his campaign.

Help get out the vote in IL-06 with a canvassing session TOMORROW with Blue Beginnings or any weekend leading up to November.

Check out the Swing Left calendar to view all upcoming canvassing and phonebanking events. Now is not the time to sit on the sidelines! We must be the power behind the #BlueWave this November.

Action 3: Deputy Voter Registrar Training on 8/6

Registering voters is the first step to winning elections. As an appointed Deputy Voter Registrar, you can help activate citizen engagement by encouraging people to vote and by registering people to vote.

In Chicago, one of the ways you may be appointed is through training by the city of Chicago Board of Elections. Indivisible Illinois 9th District is hosting official training sessions. Join us if you are a currently registered voter in the city of Chicago. In the training class, you will learn who is eligible to vote, IDs needed to vote, and paperwork used to officially register voters.

When: Monday, August 6 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Where: 1475 W Balmoral Ave
