Write Letters to the Editor
Did you know that media outlets determine the direction of their coverage based on the letters they receive? Address issues that are important to you or a candidate. And work at your own pace.
Adding a personal message to a candidate's postcard helps increase its impact. You can say it your way, or use a script, right from the comfort and safety of your own home.
Call Voters Directly
Research shows that when real people reach out, voters are more likely to remember the message. You'll be supplied with a list of Dem-leaning voters, a script and a bit of training. Texting works too!
Canvassing is just a fancy term for walking door-to-door in a neighborhood to acquaint residents with a candidate or cause. You'll get a script, a list of Dem-leaning voters and a lot of mentoring. It's a fun and rewarding way to get your steps in.
Run for Precinct Delegate
A Precinct Delegate represents the party's voters in a city's precinct, organizing outreach and attending Democratic events. It's an elected position and a great way to get involved in the Democratic Party. Inquire here for more information.
