March 1, 2018: The Time is Now!

Early Voting ends tomorrow, March 2nd for the 2018 Democratic Primary and we still want you to go out and vote! 

Make sure you get out the vote and take someone with you! At the Harris County Democratic Party, we know your voice matters. Make sure it’s heard when you go vote for progressive candidates on this year’s democratic ballot. 

We encourage you to vote early! When you early vote, you can vote anywhere (find locations here) in the county and avoid long lines on Tuesday, March 6th the actual day of the Primary!

If you can’t make it out for early vote, DO NOT FORGET to vote on election day: Tuesday, March 6th.

This is our time to shine democrats! Let’s show the otherside what we are willing to do in ensuring we are fighting to make lives better. Remember, It All Starts Here in Harris County! We are ground zero for turning Texas Blue! 

Get out and Vote!

What: Early Voting, 2018 Democratic Primary & Primary Election Day 2018

When: Tuesday, February 20th - Friday, March 2nd & Tuesday, March 6th

On Saturday, March 3rd, 2018, we will gather at Emancipation Park (3018 Emancipation Ave, Houston, TX 77004) to celebrate the enormous achievements of Black women in the United States and pay tribute to every Black girl and woman. Organized by Houston Rising and Black Lives Matter Houston, The March for Black Women program will feature artists, entrepreneurs, educators, thought leaders and activists.  

We are asking all participants who will be tabling and marching with us to arrive at Emancipation Park no later than 9:30 AM.  There will be signs and volunteers who will direct you to where you will be located. If you have any questions please contact Odus Evbagharu at odus@harrisdemocrats.com.

Organized by Houston Rising and Black Lives Matter Houston, The March for Black Women program will feature artists, entrepreneurs, educators, thought leaders and activists.

 

Special guests include Zerlina Maxwell, Director of Progressive Media for SiriusXM and former progressive media aide to Hillary Clinton; Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee; and Representative Shawn Thierry. We will also feature Dr. Roni Dean-Burren, a fierce advocate for eradicating systemic racism within the school system, and The Houston Press Rapper of the Year, Genesis Blu.

 

Black women have impacted the political, social, and economic arena for decades, especially over the last few years as the American political fabric has been tested yet again by an uptick in white supremacists. Our power- to sway elections, rebuild neighborhoods, and teach our children to become healthy, thriving adults- will be a key to the health and vibrancy of our nation and our world.


This event is Black woman centered but welcomes all allies in support of Black women.  

 

WHAT: March for Black Women

WHEN:  Saturday, March 3, 2018 from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

The March primary is under way and we couldn’t be more excited.

Harris County Democrats are showing up at the polls at a high rate and the enthusiasm is through the roof! The progress we are making is very encouraging, yet we need your help to do more.

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee is really encouraged by the work we have done! She is so excited, she will be joining us today for our phonebank!

This week, weekend, and next week, your local Party will be very active in Getting Out The Vote, and we need all hands on deck! Everyday this week, there will be opportunities to do your part in building up the Blue Wave. There are many calls to make and texts to send, so I challenge you to sign up for at least 2 shifts to contact Democrats who’ve not voted yet to vote early or on Election Day! 

It all starts here in Harris County! We’re Ground Zero for turning Texas blue and if this state turns, so too does the country.
