Time to vote!
Dear Hastings Democrats,
It's go-time! If you haven't done so yet, make your voting plan for tomorrow. The polls will be open from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. You can confirm your polling place here.
If you're feeling the anxiety mounting, here are some ways to channel that energy:
Vote first thing Tuesday morning. On the front of the ballot, vote Row A all the way to support our Democrats. On the back of the ballot, vote YES on the New York State "Clean Water, Clean Air, and Green Jobs Bond Act" AND the Hastings Village Proposition to move the date of the Village election to November. (Our website has links for more information on the candidates, propositions, and how to vote.)
Make sure that others to vote. It really adds up if each of us can turn out a few more voters. Remind everyone you know that Tuesday is Election Day. Ask your friends what their plans are for voting. Offer an elderly or infirm neighbor a ride to the polls. If they need a primer on why the races in New York are so consequential and close this year, you might want to share this podcast from The New York Times' "The Daily." The New York Times Editorial Board's endorsement of Kathy Hochul is also an inspiring read.
Volunteer for a campaign. Nothing dispels election fears more than getting involved. Our nearest too-close-to-call race is that of Democrat Sean Patrick Money to our immediate north, in Congressional District 17—and your participation can make the difference. Sign up here to join tonight's phone bank!
Thanks to all of you who've been out there knocking on doors here in Hastings and for candidates near and far. Let's all look to do one more thing tomorrow to help bring in a victory for our Democratic slate and values.
Chair, Hastings Democratic Committee
