ABOUT THIS STATE
We had a whole different thing written for Tennessee when we found out your nickname was the Volunteer State because of the role volunteer soldiers played in the War of 1812. Good news: We have plenty of things for you to do that are not as risky as the Battle of New Orleans. Like vote. Here’s what you need to know to be a voter (and volunteer) in Tennessee this year. Tennessee will be holding its statewide primary and general elections on August 4 and November 8, respectively. Local elections will be taking place on May 3 as well. (Source: Ballot Ready)Be A Voter

Vote Save the Senate Fund
If we can increase our majority to 52 Senate seats in 2022, Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema’s refusal to change the filibuster won’t matter. We can elect a Democratic majority that takes decisive action on raising the minimum wage, forgiving student debt, fighting climate change, protecting reproductive freedom, and more. But that will only work if we also protect the four most vulnerable Democratic incumbents in purple states like Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, and New Hampshire.
