Presidential Primary – June 4th, 2024

CLOSED PRIMARY – You must be registered as a Democrat in order to vote in the Democratic primary.

If you want your vote to count as a vote to survive, vote for Marianne Williamson on June 4th! Marianne has suspended her campaign, and is not on the ballot in DC, but you can still vote for her as a “write-in” candidate! She stands for a ceasefire in Gaza, negotiations in Ukraine, an end to warmongering with China, the abolition of nuclear weapons and a full-scale mobilization to address the climate emergency.

This is a primary election solely for the purpose of choosing the Democratic nominee for President. Your vote does not in any way support or enable Trump to get back in! But neither should it be merely a coronation for Joe Biden. He needs to earn our vote. And he needs to get a clear message from the citizens of this country who do not accept the status quo and want to see the changes that Marianne Williamson stands for. Vote to survive!

Presidential Election – Nov 5th, 2024

This is a deep BLUE STATE (DISTRICT) that Biden won in 2020 and Clinton won in 2016. Trump has no chance of winning DC in 2024.

In DC, it is safe to vote for a third-party candidate in the general election, without fear that this will help get Trump back into the White House. He will not win this state no matter how you vote.

If you want your vote to count as a vote to survive, vote for Jill Stein on November 5th! Jill stands for a ceasefire in Gaza, negotiations in Ukraine, an end to warmongering with China, the abolition of nuclear weapons and a full-scale mobilization to address the climate emergency.

Vote Swapping

AND, your most powerful contribution to this election may not be your own vote, but the vote of a friend, relative, colleague, former neighbor, or somebody else you know who does live in a “battleground” state. You may be the one person who can convince that person to vote, and to vote for our survival, at this election.

House Race

AND, although DC does not have a Senator (yet), it does have a Rep in the House of Representatives – even though she can’t vote (yet). Eleanor Holmes Norton is one of the most progressive members of Congress, so a vote for Eleanor is a vote to survive!
