2018 Online Voter's Guide

LEFT UP TO US formed in the spring of 2016 when local volunteers for the Bernie Sanders campaign organized to promote progressive change in the Austin area. We are answering the call for a political revolution by engaging and educating the community, collaborating with other local activist groups, and advocating for local candidates and issues. It is in the spirit of this mission that we have put together this guide for you.

Our positions are guided by the Left Up To US Platform, which you can view here. We officially endorse candidates in eight races; these endorsements are the result of a democratic vote among our members. For races in which we make no official endorsement, we provide information about the candidates that we believe will be useful to progressive voters. We would love to cover everything on every Central Texas progressive’s 2017 midterm primary election ballot, but as a fairly new organization we don’t (yet!) have the resources for such an endeavor. What we do have is the culmination of research on eleven Central Texas races by our hardworking progressive volunteers.
