Dear OSTPDX Members,
Moving into the final week before these long-awaited Midterm Elections, we need all hands on deck to get out the vote-GOTV. Join our GOTV Halloween Flash Mob, do some sign-waving with the folks at Stand on Every Corner, volunteer to canvass or drop literature off on doorsteps. Also consider emailing voters in your circles OSTPDX’s list of candidates and measures we support. The Blue Wave is building so let’s bring it home!
