Our Strategy

Activating midterm-skipping Democrats

In districts where the number of Democrats who skip the midterms is close to or greater than the margin of win, we run a program to activate registered Democrats who skip the midterms with a clever Get Out The Vote campaign.  

"LAST WEEKEND" BEFORE THE ELECTION CANVASSING SHIFTS

We are running 3-1/2 days of canvassing up until the day before the election. Below are shift dates; click on the link to sign up and get staging location and other info.

We will be operating out of a private residence in Granite Bay, CA, east of Roseville. We will be handing out voter lists for CA-07 (Protecting Dr. Ami Bera, Democrat) and CA-04 (helping Democrat Jessica Morse turn this district red to blue). Most of our CA-04 voter lists will be in Granite Bay or Loomis. CA-07 canvassing will be in Folsom.

Friday Nov 2 --- Canvass: Granite Bay (Placer County)  2 pm onward; last territory handed out at 4:30

Saturday Nov 3 --- Canvass: Granite Bay (Placer County)  9 am onward; last territory handed out at 4:30

Should I come with a minivan of 6 people?

Please don't come with 6 people crammed into a mini van. Midterm skipping Democrats usually are spread out in spaces too far to walk to them all. We always send out pairs of 2 in cars. I know its worse for the environment, but we really need you to come in cars with 2 or 3 people. We are helping out both campaigns by specifically canvassing more rural and spread out turf that we think they might not cover.

Should I come if I don't have a partner?

We will find you a canvassing partner, no worries, just come!

I've never canvassed before, is it scary? 

If you've never canvassed before, we will train you and no, it's not scary. You're talking only to midterm skipping Democrats. Not Republicans, not Trumpers, not really even independents.

But, I can't come canvass, I really can't. What should I do?

Give us money right now. We need to raise $3,800 to cover the last postage bills before the 25th.
