What does Conor Lamb’s victory mean for NJ7, our Congressman was asked? “Secretary Clinton carried my district by 3,800 votes and I was honored to carry it by 38,000 votes . . . . I’m very confident the voters in my district will judge me based upon my record.”
Confident? Really? In a race that is now a toss-up? In NJ, where voters disapprove 63-32% of the job President Trump is doing? With your A- rating from the NRA, in the year of #Neveragain? With a proud boast of at least 39 votes to repeal, defund or dismantle Obamacare, when healthcare is again top of mind? With your 34% rating from the League of Conservation Voters? With an 83% approval rating from a Koch brothers group, when we are thinking what we could have done with the $1.5 trillion we gave to the Kochs and their ilk?? You think? Congressman, we will be delighted to judge you on your record!
Congressman Lance has one hope. You won’t vote. Or your neighbor won’t vote; or your aunt won’t vote, or your son won’t vote. And Republicans love to put a thumb on the scales when it comes to voting. They have perfected the gerrymander, such that 49% of votes for the House translated to 55% of the seats.They love to roll logs in the path of the poor, immigrants, people of color, all in the name of preventing wholly fictitious voter fraud.
But this time, Congressman, we are going to find those 38,000 votes and a few more! We will find them among our large suburban base of motivated women and millennials and minorities. We will find them in the first time voters we are registering, who expect us to take on the NRA. And we will find them among the decent people of NJ7 who are disgusted by the fourth-rate reality TV show that is the Trump administration that YOU support.
And we WILL vote as though our lives depend upon it. Because they DO!
Remember in November!

The 2020 Presidential Election is November 3, 2020
Whether it's your first or 50th time voting, it's good to review the basics to make sure that everything goes smoothly.
As has been the case since 1972, Iowa will hold the first presidential nominating contest in 2020. Its caucuses will be held on February 3. This will be followed by February contests in the other traditionally early voting states of New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina. Super Tuesday follows on March 3. That date will be even more prominent in 2020 as California moves up its traditional June primary. By the end of March, events covering well over 50% of each party’s delegates will have taken place. The Democratic convention is in July, with the GOP following in August. The 2020 presidential election is scheduled for November 3.
The election calendar below includes dates – where known - for state primary and caucus events, party conventions and presidential debates. Purple indicates both parties are holding an event on that date. Use the links below the calendar for more details by state. CLICK HERE

If you have any question about voting before election day, contact the election office in your county.
If you any problems voting on election day, ask for a vote by mail ballot to vote ahead. Ballots are mailed out well ahead of Election Day, and thus voters have an “election period,” not just a single day, to vote. All vote by mail ballots can be thought of as absentee voting for everyone. This system is also referred to as “vote by mail or VBM.”
