Objective: 2022 Voter Turnout

In “Respect for Acting,” Uta Hagen tells readers that good acting means making all your character decision in service of the objective. If you get stuck on the obstacles, you can’t move the story forward.

That is also true in politics.

The objective is holding a Democratic majority by winning midterm elections. The obstacle is state-level voting laws that make voting less convenient.

You can play to the obstacles and spend your time being mad at Republican controlled legislatures or Joe Manchin or past Supreme Court decisions. Or you can play to the objective and do something to expand Democratic turnout in 2022.

Pick a state. Find an organization on the ground. Join the effort to get bodies to the polls despite the laws. It’s really that simple.
