It’s May – the beginning of Election Season 2022!
Enjoy the warmer weather, but please keep in mind that the future of our freedoms, and Democracy, is at stake.
This will be the first federal and state-wide election since the events of January 6, 2021, when Trump-backed insurgents attempted to end our democracy – and they have not given up.
Further, a draft Supreme Court decision has been released that overturns the landmark ruling that has stood for 50 years guaranteeing the freedom of families and women to make healthcare decisions without government interference. This is an absurd ruling – and Republicans are lining up in Chester County to vote to make this fundamental right illegal in Pennsylvania.
The November 2 mid-term election will decide whether this happens, sending us all backwards to a time before 1973 when women of all ages and means had to seek out dangerous and risky health care or make a decision to upend their lives and carry a baby that could put their own life and/or livelihood and planned future at risk.
Our first step is to rally registered voters to cast their vote in the Primary Election on May 17. Many of the races are not being contested within the Democratic Party, but you will have your vote and voice in placing the following on the November ballot. All will be critical in keeping Pennsylvania from moving backwards:
- PA Governor
- PA Lt. Governor
- US Senator from PA
- US Congresswoman from PA’s 6th District
- Representative in the PA General Assembly (156th in East Bradford, 158th in West Bradford)
In addition, you will vote for your Democratic precinct and state committeepersons. These Democrats will be working hard to educate voters and get out the vote this year.
