We are less than 50 days from Election Day for the Virginia House of Delegates and State Senate. Will you pledge to make at least 20 calls a week (about 1 hour of your time) for Joshua Cole in Virginia's House District 28.  Josh has an excellent shot at flipping this crucial district, assuming he gets enough support from volunteers like us. We hope to make thousands of calls for him between now and election day on 11/5.  Click here to accept our Virginia 20 Dial Challenge!

We chose Josh as OUR CANDIDATE after extensive research conducted by IndiMarin's Voter Outreach Team. You can learn about Josh by watching his short video, "This is My Story." In 2017, Cole came VERY close to winning this district, getting 49.73% of the vote, in an election affected by serious concerns/confusion over “split precincts.” Virginia is one of the hardest states to vote in, second only to Mississippi, due to its strict voter ID law and restrictions on early voting, among other rules that disproportionately affect low-income and African-American communities. We can’t let Republicans cheat their way to victory. Democrats are just 4 seats away from flipping the entire state legislature blue and ending these harmful practices. Click here to accept our Virginia 20 Dial Challenge!
