Don't forget the Empire State Pride Agenda's voter guide on Election Day

Some of the most critical elections for LGBT equality and justice are upon us. This Tuesday, November 2, New Yorkers will be choosing who will lead our state in the years to come. The future of marriage for same-sex couples and basic protections for transgender New Yorkers is in their hands -- and yours.

You may have received our election guide in the mail listing our endorsements for pro-LGBT candidates. Our endorsed candidates have committed to use the power of their offices to push for the issues that matter most to our community. But we need your help to get them elected. You can download and print our most recent voter guide here. Take it with you to the polls Tuesday and share with everyone you know who believes in equality and justice for LGBT people.

Even if you're frustrated with electoral politics, that's all the more reason to stand up for equality and justice on Election Day. Too many races are too close to stand idly by. We know we can count on you to vote on Tuesday and get us one step closer to a more fair and just Empire State.

PS -- Get Out The Vote! Our endorsed candidates could really use a helping hand this weekend to get out the vote in key regions. We've compiled a list of volunteer opportunities and contact information for some key campaigns close to you.
