As I write, volunteers across New York are hitting the phones ahead of tomorrow's special election in the state's 26th congressional district. They've been working tirelessly, reaching out to let supporters know just how important this election is and how much their votes could matter. Kathy Hochul, the Democratic candidate, is holding her own in what's become a hard-fought race to determine who will represent the district in Washington.
Last held by a Republican, NY-26 is a mostly rural district with a population—like so many others across New York— concerned about the future of Medicare. In the next 24 hours we'll be reaching out to as many supporters as we can, reminding them to vote for Kathy Hochul tomorrow. Turnout in special elections can be especially unpredictable, so the number of calls made to our supporters could mean the difference between winning and losing.
Now is the time to get involved. Here's how you can help:
- If you live in New York State, find out how to lend your time as a volunteer
- If you live in NY-26, look up your polling place and make sure to vote tomorrow
There's a real chance that Kathy Hochul could win tomorrow, and this is your opportunity to help make it happen.
