Sending money and boots from safely blue places to battlegrounds.

The California Away Team is a long running volunteer community that focuses on voter turnout projects to elect Democrats. Our specialty skill is canvassing. We make canvassing very easy, and our programs are laser-focused on making sure the time spent canvassing has a bottom line impact on the results of the election. Learn more about our results and our program.

For the 2020 cycle several county Democratic parties around California will be running a GOTV program based on our model. We are volunteering for their events and donating money to their efforts.
