#VOTEPROCHOICE Launches National Voter Guide To Elect Prochoice Candidates Across The U.S. In November 2019 Elections
This proven digital tool mobilizes voters by showing which candidates are protecting reproductive freedom in the upcoming 49,000 elections across 34 states including critical statehouse races in Virginia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Louisiana, and New Jersey
NEW YORK, Oct. 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Today, #VOTEPROCHOICE, the political organizing initiative and technology platform founded in 2016 by Democrats.com, launched the 2019 #VOTEPROCHOICE Voter Guide, the most comprehensive, progressive prochoice voter guide in the United States. This digital tool aims to mobilize the nation’s prochoice majority this November to elect prochoice champions all the way down the ballot in each of the upcoming 49,000 races across 34 states; available here: www.vpc.guide
“With the federal government taken over by antichoice politicians determined to take away our rights and overturn Roe v. Wade, reproductive freedom is under vicious attack. Across the country, over 70% of voters support reproductive freedom, but an overly funded antichoice minority has taken over state houses, school boards and now the Supreme Court, Senate, and the Presidency,” said Heidi Sieck, Co-Founder and CEO of #VOTEPROCHOICE. “That’s why this November, we are launching the #VOTEPROCHOICE Voter Guide in all 2019 races—we have to empower voters to fight back all the way down the ballot.”
Alarmingly, only about 15% of voters vote all the way down the ballot, so the #VOTEPROCHOICE Voter Guide, which has a proven conversion rate of up to 50%, was created for the prochoice majority to more easily make informed decisions on election day. The #VOTEPROCHOICE Voter Guide analyzes each race through the policy frame of reproductive justice as well as LGBTQIA+, economic, racial, and immigrant justice, and also aggregates endorsements from partner organizations including EMILY’s List, NARAL Pro-Choice America, Run for Something, Latino Victory Fund, National Women’s Political Caucus, LGBTQ Victory Fund, Women for Justice, and other national, state and local organizations, and exposes candidates endorsed by anti-choice organizations such as the Susan B. Anthony List.
#VOTEPROCHOICE recently released the groundbreaking new report “Local Impact: How Down-ballot Seats Affect Reproductive Freedom,” which shows the far-reaching consequences of local elections to impact the prochoice movement. #VOTEPROCHOICE is working to ensure that representatives reflect our prochoice values at every level—from sheriff to school board, city council to coroner.
#VOTEPROCHOICE is a national political organizing project founded in March 2016 by Democrats.com LLC. #VOTEPROCHOICE mobilizes the over 7 in 10 prochoice American voters with the essential information to vote prochoice in every election down every ballot, and supports prochoice champions in critical races where reproductive freedom is at stake.
