Will You Be Able To Participate In Your State’s Primary Or Caucus?

In solidarity,  Mike Hersh for Alan, Mike F., Deb, Kimberly, Bryan, Dr. Bill, Dan, Donna, and Janis—your PDA national team.

Barriers to Participation are Barriers to Progress
Support PDA’s Work to Protect Your Voting Rights


One person one vote is the essence of democracy, but as the primaries and caucuses draw near, our electoral systems fall far short of that ideal. During this all-important election year, we must make sure that every voter is allowed to vote without interference, and that their votes are counted accurately.

Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) was founded in 2004 to uphold basic progressive principles including free, fair, clean, and transparent elections. As our first major effort, we worked with allies investigating and publicizing wholesale elections “irregularities” in Ohio during the 2004 Presidential Elections.

We’ve never lost sight of this imperative. We’ve made some headway in preventing voter suppression, disenfranchisement, and election hacking—but we still have a long way to go.

Pitch In Each Month To Protect Our Elections


You’re Cordially Invited to the National “Our March to the Ballot Box!” Conference Call, TOMORROW, January 22nd at 6 PM ET, 3PM PT Time.

Call in 1-218-895-8857, access code 2911# to hear from top national election protection, verified voting, and voting rights experts. Learn how you can get more involved with this essential organizing.

PDA’s founding Advisory Board member and renowned fair and accurate elections activist Mimi Kennedy offers specific, concrete advice to help voters protect our rights and prevent our disenfranchisement.

Mimi asserts that only a well-informed voter is able to detect and overcome voter registration purges, unauthorized changes to our party affiliation, and other threats to participation in our democracy. Mimi has taken it upon herself to once again forewarn voters as the primary season rapidly approaches.

She urges you to check your registration status today and every Tuesday to ensure you’ll be able to fully participate in upcoming primaries and caucuses. This because glitches, errors, and premeditated high-tech efforts could compromise our right to vote!

We’re proud to support the highly-effective coalition organizing by our sibling organization, People Demanding Action, led by the brilliant Andrea Miller. As Executive Director, Andrea brings together several organizations to help voters overcome barriers to participation, to protect our rights to vote, and to have our votes counted accurately.

As voters prepare to participate in primaries and the general election, we need your support right now to maintain our ongoing efforts to protect and promote voters’ rights! Can we count on you?
