Volunteer in CA-04

Canvassing events in CA-04 (McClintock)

Canvassing -- talking one-on-one with voters -- is the very best way to motivate a voter to get to the polls or fill out their vote-by-mail ballot. It's easy; it's even fun to connect and have a meaningful conversation with a fellow Democrat.

For our Last Weekend canvasses, we will be calling on voters who have not yet voted. The canvass is worth doing even at this point in the election season.

Our voter universe

We canvass registered Democrats who were registered to vote before Oct 15, 2014 and skipped the Nov 2014 election but then DID vote in the Nov. 2016 election. We canvass both vote by mail (VBM) and poll voters. We do not canvass No Party Preference Voters, Republicans that model as Democrats, or anyone not registered with the Democratic party.

A bit of history

Beginning in early 2017, we ask voters to sign a voter pledge card which we mailed back to them; a very effective strategy. We canvassed in these locations:

Placer County (Roseville, Rocklin, Lincoln, Auburn, Truckee, Granite Bay)
El Dorado County (El Dorado Hills, Cameron Park, Placerville, Pollock Pines)
Calaveras County (Murphys, Red Apple, Avery)
