At 5PM, we will meet in the backroom at Aeronaut and text more voters until the polls close. Then at 7PM, the big projectors go on, and we watch the results come in!
We will be texting voters in the 8 closest tossup House districts, according to FiveThirtyEight.com: IL-6, FL-15, VA-5, NM-2, WA-8, KY-6, ME-2, and FL-26. We just bought these voter lists by raising $5000 in the last 5 days in Blue Revolution!
Please make sure you do the following *before* you get to Diesel...
1. Bring your laptop, phone, chargers, and let's all buy a coffee, tea, snack, or sandwich to show our appreciation to Diesel for letting us use their space! Please try to make sure your devices are all charged before arriving.
2. If you DO NOT have gmail address, please take a minute to create one (you need one to text with the app we're using): support.google.com/mail/answer/56256
3. Sign up here for Build The Wave, using your gmail address. This is the texting service we're using: bit.ly/BTWSignUp. You'll get an email with a link to get started. Once you get to Diesel, I can help go over how to send the texts. It's easy, effective, and fun!
4. Please join our texting group on facebook here...this is where we'll be recording our totals: facebook.com/groups/BlueRevTexting/
5. And also feel free to join our larger organization here: facebook.com/groups/bluerev/
*Note: the table we reserved fits probably 15 people or so, and there are 15 people on the list. The rest of Diesel will be open to the public, so if we have no space left at the table somehow, there should be other spots where you can sit at Diesel.

Wanna help get out the vote in swing districts for the midterms? Swing Leftand Blue Revolution are fundraising at Aeronaut Brewing Company in Somerville, with some great Boston standup comics. We'll be live-streaming it on Blue Revolution.
We've got an allstar Boston comedy lineup of Lamont Price, Harry Gordon, Ken Reid, Kate Ghiloni and Will Smalley.
The 5 comics performing are doing this for FREE, so that we can donate all proceeds to Swing Left. Read more about Swing Left's mission here: bit.ly/SwingLeftAbout.
We ask that attendees donate at least $15 BEFORE the event. Please save your ActBlue receipt as your ticket. And if you are planning to watch the live-stream on Blue Revolution, please donate too.

Remember, the more bucks you give, the more doors we can knock on this November.
Please note: If you're physically going to the show, it is first come, first serve, regardless of when you bought your ticket. After Aeronaut reaches capacity, we cannot let more people in, so we cannot guarantee admittance. While we don't expect to reach capacity, we do recommend you show up early. Doors open at 6, show starts at 6:30.
