In short, our candidates are totally awesome. So what we’re about to ask you to do might be especially difficult. We want you to pick your top three House candidates.
We know the upcoming months are especially critical in the election cycle, and we want to know whose campaign should get an extra push from EMILY’s List. The candidates who receive the most votes will get special EMILY’s List emails to boost their campaigns.
We want to know whose campaign messages really resonate with you, and who has the best plan to shake up Congress. Tell us where you think we should invest.
You might not be able to go door-to-door to campaign for your favorite candidates, but by voting for them now, you could help them win their races. If you ask any of our candidates, they’ll tell you their competition is fierce, and they can always use more help.
Voting ends Monday, so cast your votes today!
