What is Witch the Vote?
Witch the Vote is a collective intersectional effort to direct our magic towards electing candidates who will push our country and our planet forward into the witch utopia we all envision and frankly really, really deserve.
So how do we Witch the Vote?
First, fucking vote. You can learn more about that here at WtV, most importantly by registering. Second, when we vote, we vote for witches.
Which candidates are Witch Worthy?
Great question! Let's start with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who overthrew a perfectly nice jar of mayonnaise who had held her district's seat for pretty much as long as she'd been alive, disrupted the entire "liberal" power structure in Congress, and came out to fight for women, people of color, and socialism. This is our Gold Star Witch — a young woman of color who fights for radical change and doesn't care if you don't like it. After Ocasio-Cortez, candidates will be ranked by their commitment to science, fighting climate change, comprehensive reproductive justice, combating white supremacy, completely dismantling the patriarchy, overthrowing our capitalist overlords, abolishing ICE, disassemble the industrial prison complex, and supporting LGBTQIA+ rights, among other factors. Rankings will include True Witch, Cauldron Stirrer, and "Can Identify the Book of Shadows If It's Literally Right in Front of Them." Some of us can't afford to be as picky as we'd like, but in 2018, we'll promote the best candidates willing to run and vote for the best candidates on the ballot. Remember, if you don't vote, you get Trump. Just...be with that.
How do I get more involved?
First, Vote, Witch. Then, let us know what candidates you need on these pages! We cannot find all of these people on our own. Little-known candidate in Oklahoma struggling to get support from the Democratic party because she's in a red district? Know someone in Wisconsin who's a rabid union organizer running for state senate? Know someone running for school board fighting for comprehensive sex ed? Send them to us and we'll list 'em so witches can peruse at their leisure and decide who's getting their energy, their money. and their almighty vote. Feel free to recommend a witch ranking! Email firstname.lastname@example.org or submit ideas and knowledge to our submissions page.
All profits from our hip ass merch (that you know you already want) will go to Michelle Obama's When We All Vote initiative. This helps us get all of the witches registered, fights voter suppression, and most importantly, allows us to affirm what we all know to be true; when the Witch Utopia arrives, y'all know Michelle Obama will descend down from those clouds above like Glinda telling us the real magic was inside ourselves all along.
