Each campaign offers their own training opportunities and will
give you everything you need to volunteer confidently. Scroll
down to learn how to help.
|CANVASSING / DOORKNOCKING
Not every campaign is hitting the doors but some are. If you are inexperienced at canvassing, we’ll provide training. We will also need volunteers to help distribute candidate material for “lit drop”.
|PHONE BANKING & TEXTING
We need to reach every voter with our candidate and party message. Phone banking is a critical way to do that – especially in this time of social distancing.
Virtual Phone Banking is very similar to phone banking on paper, except the volunteer will be provided a web link to dial, read, and enter information from. This will require a device with internet access and can be done off a cell phone. Training available.Sending texts is another great way to reach potential voters. You can text from your own home, in the comfort of your comfy, pandemic-era sweats!
Write postcard to help a candidate or support a national call to action!
|SHARE THE MESSAGE!
Post candidates’ messages on your social media to educate your personal network about the work they are doing. Every one of our candidates is committing to serving their constituents. Be sure to follow , post and share to spread their messages.

If anyone wants to send 24 postcards to 24 Republican Senators who are ON RECORD as opposing the confirmation of a Supreme Court Justice before a Presidential election, I have free postcards and stamps on my back porch. You do have to follow the link for the names, addresses and hypocrisy of these individuals.
You can reach Lynn at email@example.com or 203-297-3572.
