Statement from DLCC interim President Heather Williams: 

“The bottom line is that tomorrow is a critical opportunity for voters across the country to elect Democrats who will protect fundamental freedoms and chart the path toward a brighter future. We’ve been in this fight all year, reminding voters of the stakes, identifying and investing in the best opportunities to build Democratic power, and working with our partners to deliver victories tomorrow. To Democrats in these states, return mail-in ballots, make sure you’re getting your friends and family to vote, and make your voices heard tomorrow – the direction of our country depends on it!”

The DLCC is the official Democratic Party committee dedicated to winning America’s state legislatures. Last year, the DLCC defied the odds by not losing any state legislative majorities, flipping four key chambers, and creating four new Democratic trifectas – the best midterm year for the party in power since at least 1934. State legislatures are the building blocks of our democracy and pass the policies that have the biggest impact on Americans’ day-to-day lives.
