WHY: UNITE HERE, the hospitality workers’ union, predicted months ago that voters in Nevada, Arizona, and Pennsylvania would make the critical difference in this election. UNITE HERE members got out on the doors first and stayed out longest—the union’s canvassers knocked on the doors of 3 million Americans to encourage them to vote, helping drive unprecedented voter turnout largely among voters of color in battleground states including Nevada, Arizona, and Pennsylvania.
