CHICAGO – Today, Progressive Turnout Project (PTP), the nation’s largest Democratic voter contact organization, is adding nine candidates to its growing list of endorsements in Virginia’s 2021 election.

“With less than three months until Election Day, Progressive Turnout Project is reinforcing our commitment to winning up and down the ticket in Virginia by endorsing these nine voting rights champions who will be key to keeping Democrats’ majority in Richmond.

“As we count down the days until voting begins, our Voter Turnout Fellows are preparing to go into the field and support their candidates, and our Postcard to Swing States volunteers are busy drafting messages that will go out to inconsistent Democratic voters. 

“We’ll be doing everything we can to get out the vote, and we encourage all Democrats to get off the sidelines and get involved in this critical election.”
