GOTV for “Uncommitted” Votes

In early March, more than 100,000 Michigan voters in the Democratic primary voted “uncommitted” as a way of sending a clear message to Biden: working people demand a permanent ceasefire now. The efforts in Michigan were followed closely by similar organizing in Minnesota and Hawai‘i, and since, the Biden administration has begun signaling some movement, though still not enough. In Washington State, members of Local 4121 joined with others in the Washington labor community turning out voters to vote “uncommitted” in the Democratic primary on March 12. 

Sign up here to phonebank voters in Wisconsin for the April 2nd primary. While voting “uncommitted” is not an option in all states, there are many states with upcoming primaries where voters have that option. As these efforts develop for additional upcoming primaries, more information will be posted here for ways you can plug in.
