I have very little free time, but I think the most important thing is to VOTE. No matter how small the election, VOTE. Republicans have been doing this for years, filling up school boards with anti-science idiots. When people say everything starts at the grass roots, they are right. Don’t elect dumbas*es to the school board so they have a harder time being elected for other positions, so they have a harder time going for bigger positions like governor.
FWIW, my state recently had a primary election for state superintendent. I went AFTER work, and I was the 17th voter in my district. That means that all day, only 16 people had voted. Believe me, I hope there are as few voters for the regular election because then my vote will count that much more. Small elections may seem pointless, but they aren’t. Thos eare the people who get name recognition and who make city, district and state policies. They matter.
And call. I have a list of phone numbers, and I’ve been making a minimum of three calls a week. I call at lunchtime or during a break. It doesn’t take long, especially if you leave a message. Tell them who you are and why you are calling. As PPs have mentioned, they listen.
