February 1, 2022 — Today, The Lincoln Project has released a new ad — “Vote While It Counts” — with a clear message: Democracy is on the ballot.

All across this nation, at all levels of government, Republicans are pushing legislation that would make it harder for Americans to cast their ballots. What’s more, these Republicans, in addition to restricting the right to vote, are working to grant themselves the right to overturn the will of the people — like in Arizona where the GOP-led legislature is pushing a bill which would allow them to overturn an election without even a hint of evidence.

The Lincoln Project is proud to be building the largest and most diverse political coalition in recent memory — The Union — which will take on the fight to preserve, protect, and defend democracy. Members of The Union are working to ensure we win this fight against the anti-democracy, authoritarian Republican Party.

“We urge Americans to vote in the 2022 midterm election, because if Republicans win this fight, there is a real possibility their vote may not be counted in future elections,” said Lincoln Project co-founder Reed Galen. “The fight to achieve democracy some 250 years ago was hard-fought and took an all-hands strategy; in 2022, we’re again called to the fight. Diverse coalitions, like the one we’re building, give us the best chance at beating back the GOP’s authoritarian lurch and preserving the democracy we won all those years ago.”

There is no time for complacency.

There is no time for living room activism. Every day must be spent asking ourselves if we’re doing our part, if we’re doing enough to ensure that the grand idea called America continues.

Thank you for joining us in this fight.
