Amity Day!



Be Heard  |  Show You Care  |  Spread the Word  |  Your Vote Matters!

Election Day, Tuesday May 9, 2023: the Carlisle Select Board supported the Town Clerk's request to shorten in person voting hours from 7AM- 8PM to 2PM- 7PM. - that's 8 fewer hours folks! The SB cited facts presented by the Town Clerk such as low turnout in uncontested elections, plenty of "other ways to vote, and difficulty finding volunteers to help."  At best this was misguided.  Voters in town and the League of Womens' Voters spoke up, observing that this amounted to voter supression.  It should go without saying, but voters need to turn out in every election to change the "facts."  Let's do it from now on!

National Elections 2023

Due to the disproportionate number of seats to defend, Democrats will have a very hard time holding even their present levels in Congress in 2024.  Stay tuned for analysis.  However, there are special elections before then, where we can help hold off the right wing going into 2024.


More coming.

Summary of National Results 2022

Here were poll data-based goals for the Senate - with Governor opportunities - set last August-September:

Protect in priority order

1.  Cortez Masto (NV)

2.  Warnock (GA)

2. Kelly, he's well ahead, possible Gov flip

3. Hassan (NH)

Flip red to blue:  ​

1.  WI  Defeat Johnson, Protect Gov Evers

1  OH Ryan to flip

2.  NC Beasley to flip 

2.  PA Fetterman flip and flip Gov

Excellent Results!  All the Protect candidates won, despite very narrow margins right before the election.  In the Flip column, Fetterman had a comfortable win for PA Senator.  Three Governors in states where we worked for Senators, either held or flipped red to blue:  Katie Hobbs (AZ flip), Tony Evers (WI hold) and Josh Shapiro (PA flip).  We lost in both OH and NC Senate races as those candidates slipped quite a bit by the end of October and fell off the recommended list.  Ditto for Senate in WI.  The priorities were set according to whether the candidate was in or outside the sweet spot polling at 1-4% above his/her opponent.  All were tracked and adjusted through late October.  This is near-ideal targeting as zero losses would indicate we played it a little too safe.
