15-Minute Activist: On Nov. 6, Vote on the WFP Line

By

This election consider voting for Barack Obama and other candidates on Row D of your ballot, the Working Families Party line. Since 1998 the WFP has steadily increased its share of the vote. The PSC, which affiliated with the WFP last year, can help continue that momentum.

The WFP is an important force for progressive politics, especially at the local level. Voting on the WFP line is a way to show candidates who run on more than one ballot line that they owe much of their support – and perhaps their margin of victory – to progressives and the labor movement. More rarely, a candidate is elected on the WFP line alone: these have been some of our most pro-labor elected officials.

Add your voice to the broad-based alliance of unions and community-based organizations that make up the WFP. When you do it on November 6, do it on Row D.
