Early Voting Rally, New Events and More – 10/19/2018

Greetings from Kate and Matt

Dear Democrats,

What an exciting time to be a Democrat!

There are so many opportunities to help elect outstanding candidates, both here and across the country.

Many thanks to all the Dispatch readers who have sent birthday greetings! Special thanks to my dear friends who joined my pre-birthday canvass. Now, I’m inviting folks to my Post Birthday canvass on Saturday at 3:30 pm. Join me for “Doors and Drinks” at 3:30 pm at Starbucks in Marlborough.

For my readers in the 413 and those ready to travel there, meet Senator Warren and Jay Gonzalez at the Early Voting Rally at UMass Amherst on Monday. Details in the calendar section below.

LINK TO EARLY VOTING SCHEDULE: https://bit.ly/2NG3e8C

This year, Massachusetts has offered early voting to all eligible voters! That’s right, we don’t need an excuse to vote before Election Day–we get to vote early at a time that works for our schedule. Early voting begins on Monday, October 22nd and ends on Friday, November 2nd.

With things happening quickly we may be sending out an occasional extra issue of the Dispatch. If you are a contributor, try to get events in early. Remember that we are also using events@massdems.org as we are partnering with them now.

Democratically yours,

Kate Donaghue
