And now your candidates need you!!


We are in the home stretch before next week’s election. Early voting numbers have been good, but not great.

As you all know, in addition to our fantastic statewide candidates, we have some local candidates that really need our help.

We are contacting drop-off voters (those who have voted for Democrats in the past but don’t typically vote in midterm elections) and “hard” Democrats and getting them out to the polls. Our system eliminates people who have already voted from our lists, so we focus exclusively on voters who have not yet made it to the polls.

Your calls will make a difference in the outcome of this election!

You can join us in person at the following phone banks, or call from anywhere at your convenience simply by accessing our phone bank online.  Please bring a charged phone and, if possible, a laptop or tablet.

We won’t win if we don’t increase voter turnout!

We won’t win if we don’t increase voter turnout!

Democrats in Bastrop County and across the state did a FABULOUS job of registering new voters in the past months. Unfortunately, those numbers are not translating to significantly increased voter turnout.

If Democrats are to prevail, we MUST have a strong voter turnout, significantly larger than in past non-Presidential elections, and if we DO have a strong voter turnout, Democrats WILL prevail!

DO YOUR PART! Help us get Democrats to the polls! Contact us at or 512.470.8932.

Have you voted?!


As of the end of Saturday, 3,904 Bastrop registered voters — 9% — had voted!  Are you one of them?


Reasons to vote early:

  1. You can vote at any of the four Bastrop County locations (see below).
  2. Lines, if any, are shorter than on Election Day.
  3. If you wait till Election Day, you MUST vote at your precinct location.
  4. Early voting creates momentum and encourages others to vote.
  5. You might get hit by a bus between now and Election Day (or come down sick, or otherwise be detained by the unexpected).

So get out and vote TODAY!  And bring your progressive, Democratic friends, family members, and colleagues with you!
