Activate midterm-skipping Democrats for the 2018 elections! May 6, 2018

In the 7th Congressional District of California, there are 13,000 Democrats registered today who previously skipped voting in the midterms. In the 2018 midterms the margin of win for this seat is expected to be probably 1,500 votes.

Our project between now and 2018's elections is to knock on the doors of these "midterm skipping" voters and ask them to recommit to voting. We have a voter reactivation program that involves people signing two postcards promising to vote that we mail back to them right before the June 2018 and November 2018 elections.

Read more about our strategy and how we're going to hold onto CA-07 for Democrats here.

Schedule:  Sunday, May 6, 2018,  12pm - 4pm   
Please plan to arrive and sign in at 12 noon.

  • If you have canvassed in our program before, you can pick up your walk packet at that point and go out. We can match you with a partner if you don't have one.
  • If you haven't attended our event before, we will train you in our program before you go out and we’ll match you with a partner if you don't have one.

Up to about 4 pm      Go and knock on 25 doors! Then come back and tell us about it!
After 4 pm  (Optional, recommended) Please join us for light fare and the good company of your fellow canvassers.

Location: western Elk Grove
When you RSVP with an email address, we send you an email with the location of our staging area.

What to expect
You'll be canvassing with a packet of 25 or so names and addresses of registered Democrats who have skipped midterms but who have voted in presidential elections. These are great conversations with people who share your Democratic values. Our previous canvassing work suggests that for every 2 registered Democrats you speak to, 1 will say yes to filling out our voting reminder postcard. It's an easy ask and a lot easier than registering new voters!

If Democrats fail to vote in this midterm election, it's possible this seat could flip from Democrat to Republican. Don't regret not volunteering. Instead, be a voter motivator!
