MoveOn recently unveiled its electoral plan to defeat Donald Trump, end Republican control of the Senate and protect the Democratic-held House.
The plan includes mobilizing their millions of grassroots progressives, including in battleground states; inspiring turnout among a population of 7 million “high-potential” voters—young people, people of color, and previously infrequent voters—who MoveOn has identified as likely to support Democratic candidates if they cast ballots; and protecting the right to vote from voter suppression attempts online and offline, including new threats stemming from the coronavirus pandemic. See more details about MoveOn’s 2020 electoral plan here.
In 2018, MoveOn members helped power a “Blue Wave” that resulted in the highest midterm turnout in a century and elected the most diverse Democratically controlled U.S. House of Representatives in history.
Candidate endorsements are held by MoveOn Political Action, which represents the collective will of MoveOn’s members at the ballot box by helping to elect progressive candidates.
