While Seed the Vote was initially conceived as a one-time project for the 2020 presidential election, it grew in size and impact in a way we couldn’t have anticipated! After conducting an evaluation of our 2020 work, surveying hundreds of volunteers, leaders, and our partner organizations, we have decided to reactivate the Seed the Vote infrastructure for the 2022 midterm elections. We want to contribute to the crucial work ahead to win big in 2022 so we can hold control of the House and Senate and make so much more possible over the next decade, with our movements’ messaging and leadership at the forefront. We know that stopping fascism and shifting the balance of power in Washington so we can win large-scale change will be a long road, and our efforts in 2020 were just the start.
In 2022 we plan to knock on doors and make phone calls with grassroots organizations in some combination of the following states: Arizona, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Georgia, North Carolina and Nevada.
We also will create new regional Branches, where groups of Seed the Vote leaders in different parts of the country organize within their own networks to bring more people into this work. These Branches will partner directly with groups in their closest battleground state to build cross-state solidarity and send as many people as possible to support the work happening on the ground.
We are still finalizing our plans. Sign up below to let us know you’re interested in being involved, and we’ll make sure to keep you in the loop!
