Supervoters unite

Dear MoveOn member,

Do you know any women in North Carolina, Colorado, or Iowa?

Every vote matters, but this year, women's votes in a few key battleground states are likely to decide who controls the Senate.1

That's the inspiration behind Supervoters, a campaign we're launching today to make sure women voters in those states know—and use—their power. We're unveiling movie-poster-style ads and online videos, and this weekend we'll be calling hundreds of thousands of women voters in those key states and help get them to the polls.

Will you help spread the word?

On MoveOn's Supervoter site, you'll find a video and online ads featuring some awe-inspiring MoveOn members. Please share the video and ads with friends or family in North Carolina, Iowa, or Colorado!

Here's a sneak peek of some of the great ads:

Right now, control of the U.S. Senate is a toss-up—just a few hotly contested states will determine the outcome.2 It reminds me of past presidential elections, when all eyes were on Ohio and Florida! But this time, women in North Carolina, Iowa, Colorado, and a handful of other states may be the last line of defense against a regressive, anti-woman GOP-led Senate.

Why only women voters? Don't men's votes count as well? Absolutely. But women voters are especially attuned to the stakes of this election, as the outcome is inextricably linked to our health, our bodies, our paychecks, and our children. And if women mostly stay home on Election Day, Democrats will lose—it's as simple as that.3

Will you help save the Senate by sharing this Supervoter video and these online ads with any women you know in Iowa, Colorado, and North Carolina—so they know how much the rest of us are counting on them?

Thanks for all you do.
