We have a march route!

We have a march route! It is going to be very cold on Saturday and we don’t want your toes to freeze, so we’re keeping it short. You can do two laps if you’re feeling fired up.

Due to the weather, we’re going to extend the indoor rally for a bit longer. The rally starts at 1:00 in the Fargo Civic Center arena. We’re expecting the march to start at about 2:30. We’ll announce our full speaker lineup soon.

4 Tuesdays left! Let’s learn how to vote early!

There are 4 Tuesdays left until the mid-term election. If you can, please vote early and encourage your friends and family to do so too! This year is all about turning out the vote so spread the word!

Fargo/West Fargo: In Cass County, you can vote early at one of 4 locations starting Oct 29-Nov 2 10am-7pm.
1. Ramada Inn (Formerly Baymont)
3333 13th Ave S, Fargo
2. Fargodome
1800 University Dr N, Fargo
3. DoubleTree by Hilton, 825 East Beaton Dr, West Fargo
4. Days Inn Casselton (Oct 31-Nov 2 from 10-7)
2050 Governor’s Drive, Casselton

Moorhead: In Clay County, you can vote early at the auditor’s office at the courthouse from 8-4:30 weekdays through 11/2, from 10-3 on Saturday, 11/3, and from 8-5 on Monday, 11/5. No phones are allowed in the courthouse.

You can also request an absentee ballot to vote by mail. Absentee ballots have to be returned by election day.

If you need other locations let us know and we’ll try to find out more for you.

5 Tuesdays left! Let’s all help Heidi!

Heidi came through for us last week, and now it’s our turn to come through for her. We called, texted, emailed, sent postcards. She listened.

It’s up to us to make sure she doesn’t lose this election because of it.

If we don’t give Heidi everything we have over the next month, North Dakota will be represented in the Senate by a man who thinks that listening to assault survivors is a “movement toward victimization.” Who believes climate change is a hoax. Who votes with Trump 98.9% of the time.

Here’s what we’re asking you to do:

1. Talk to THREE FRIENDS or family members about why you’re voting for Heidi. Ask them to vote for her, too. Here is where she stands on the issues: https://heidifornorthdakota.com/priorities/

2. VOLUNTEER to to contact other voters by phone or doorknocking: https://heidifornorthdakota.com/volunteer/

It might take a little bit of courage to step out of your comfort zone. Heidi showed you how to do it.

Today’s actions: Call again & protest scheduled for today

URGENT! We’re down to the wire now.  Please call your senators again today and tell them to vote no on Kavanaugh. Vote scheduled for the Senate Judiciary Committee this morning. Full Senate vote TBD.
