While voting in favor of candidates that our movement can later hold accountable is an important piece in the broader struggle for real democracy, casting ballots for politicians that've been bought-off by moneyed interests ain't easy to stomach.
It's no wonder that 1 in 4 of Americans say they’re less likely to vote because big money donors have so much more influence over elected officials than average citizens.* We feel their pain, but mass demobilization is exactly what the worst of the 1% wants ... so why give it to them? Instead, let's reclaim Election Day. Let’s use our votes to keep corruption in the limelight and remind Americans that the struggle for democracy does not begin and end on November 6th.
