And now we wait. But regardless of the outcome, we start back up in January. We're in the fight of our lives for the rest of our lives.
Please keep your eyes open after January for opportunities to help in upcoming elections.
If you have ideas for fundraising for the next cycle that you'd like to talk over with us please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org. It's never too early to start brainstorming!
If you've never called voters, consider trying it out next season.
If you do call voters, in your downtime try to think of ways to speed up your dialing so you can reach the maximum number of voters possible.
Thank you for all you've done this year!
Puget Sound Sister District volunteers work with campaigns to help with fundraising and phonebanking. If you got this far you probably already know that the Sister District Project is all about giving those of us in blue areas a chance to support great candidates for state elections across the US where our help can make a real difference.
We supported great candidates in 2020 for North Carolina's state houses.

Meet Brian Farkas running for the house in district 9. Brian won!
Raised in Pitt County, Brian Farkas has the real-world skills necessary to hit the ground running on Day One as the next state representative in District 9. Brian received a B.A. in Political Science and a Minor in Economics at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, as well as a Master of Public Administration from the UNC School of Government in Chapel Hill.
Meet Frances Jackson running for the house in district 45. As of Dec 1, Frances' race is still not called.
Her education, professional experience, community service, and values make her the best candidate to represent the citizens of North Carolina’s House District 45. Frances is a dedicated Democrat committed to serving the best interests of her community.
In addition to all our volunteers, there's a smaller group who are District Captains. We meet regularly during campaign season to help coordinate activities, keep up with social media, and send weekly updates to the rest of our volunteers. Don't hesitate to contact your SDP Puget Sound District Captains if you have any questions or would like to become a District Captain!
Bridget Burns, a founding member of Sister District Puget Sound, was born, raised, and still lives in South Seattle. When not working to flip state legislative races BLUE across the country, she is working in early childhood education by day, walking Seward Park by early morning and spending time with friends and family by evening.
Roz Ray is a writer and carpenter, born and raised in the Seattle area. While she's always been politically active, she never thought she would get into organizing, but here it is three years later, and she's still huffing and puffing about state legislative races in between fixing houses, writing weird stories, and watching re-runs of The Great British Baking Show.
Jilda Nettleton, born near Syracuse, NY, has been living on the west coast since 1990. She started out with Sister District while living in Pacifica, CA with the CA Peninsula chapter and is now happy to be volunteering with the Puget Sound chapter since 2018. Jilda is also involved with North Seattle Progressives, Wallingford Indivisible, League of Women Voters, Snohomish County as well as trying to find time to be a breast cancer advocate. When she's not busy "destroying the country with her leftist propaganda"; Jilda is either A) driving her children somewhere while listening to podcasts, B) staring at the fridge trying to decide what's for dinner, or C) attending to the demands of 4 cats.
Barb Elliott lives near the Zoo and runs our welcome wagon, website, and newsletter. When she’s not gardening (with a special love of BLUE flowers) she enjoys playing old-time music (it’s better than it sounds) and watching her husband cook lovely dinners.
