$20 Million. That’s how much money out of state oil companies have put into this election.

The most ever spent on a Washington election is $22 Million, spent by Monsanto and others to defeat GMO labeling. The Oil Companies are using the same California PR firm Monsanto used, and in the coming weeks, we expect them to blow past that record.

I can’t stress enough how hard this election is going to be – the firm they’ve hired won 27 out of 29 of their last campaigns. But volunteers like Sebastian are how we’re going to win.

Sebastian and his Mom spent their weekend knocking on doors for 1631 because it’s his future that’s at stake. When they were done he asked when they could do it again!

Sebastian will be out again this weekend, are you going to be with him? There are 39 days left!

Canvass/Message Training Webinar 

Want to get a head start on the canvassing script? Want to know the tips and tricks on how to answer hard questions at the door? We’re holding two webinars a week for folks to learn how to talk about this campaign at the door and how to answer frequently asked questions. (Note: It is not required to attend one of these before attending a canvass, just some extra prep!)

You can join the training on Tuesday or Thursday from 7:00pm – 8:00pm: RSVP FOR A WEBINAR HERE

Spread the word with VoterCircle

If you missed it, VoterCircle is a rad new friend-to-friend outreach tool that lets you ID which of your friends are Washington Voters and quickly send them a message about the campaign.

We have yard signs!
If you want a yard sign swing by our Seattle office, or pick one up at a canvass or phonebank near you. We’re asking for a suggested donation of $15 to cover the costs of printing them.

Write a letter to the editor (LTE)
Thanks to everyone who submitted letters to the editor last week! Remember the best letters are personal stories that explain why you believe in 1631, as opposed to policy explanations. We’ve created an LTE guide with some great samples Check it out here

You can also run your LTE’s by jack@yeson1631.org if you want feedback.

I can’t believe that after 3 years of work there are only 39 days left. Let’s give it all we’ve got for the next 5 weeks!
