Ohio is having a special election on August 8 that is clearly about democracy vs autocracy; the GOP has placed an issue on the ballot to increase the threshold for passing citizen-led initiatives from a simple majority (50%+1) to over 60%. Why? They are hoping to squelch a ballot measure for the November general election that would guarantee a woman’s right to contraceptives and reverse a trigger law that outlaws abortion.
How can you help? Volunteer with Ohio Democrats!
Some voters are unaware of the special election, we need to get the Democratic & Independent vote out to Vote NO on Issue 1:

After August 8th, PV Dems Activism will focus on the statewide elections in Virginia and Governor Beshear’s re-election in Kentucky, https://andybeshear.com/. Fun fact, since 2003, whichever party wins the gubernatorial race in Kentucky wins the Presidency the following year.
