Ladies Get Elected: Your guide to the midterms 🗳

The midterms are happening November 6th. Have you heard? I hope you’ve heard. But in case you haven’t, we’re going to make it easy for you to get involved!
If you’re like us here at Ladies Get Paid HQ, you’re probably pretty concerned with the never-ending hellscape of our politics right now. The best thing you can do is vote for people who have the same values as you. Oh, and make sure your friends vote.

Ladies Get Elected
Less than 20% of our elected officials are women. Imagine what our government would look like if we got to 50%. Want to learn about amazing ladies running for office this year? We’re tracking them in a spreadsheet (click that button below). If there’s someone you think should be added, shoot us an email.
We highly encourage you to find a candidate you love (or a zillion, whichever), and donate to her campaign. Women traditionally contribute to political campaigns at lower rates than men, so let’s put our money where our mouths are and change that sad stat.
Want to take the plunge and get hands on with a campaign? There’s tons of ways you can volunteer to help out, like texting, calling or knocking on doors. Here are some great organizations who can help you get involved.
