With only 8 days left before Election Day, it’s time to pull out the stops. If you haven’t voted already, find a convenient Early Voting place and do it now! Then use this week to volunteer and help get out the vote.
Week 1 Countdown Tip: Volunteer!
Here are a few ways to plug in during this final week:
- Sign up for the Thursday night or Sunday afternoon Virtual Phone Bank with NC Wins.
- Check out volunteer opportunities with the Buncombe County Democratic Party to help with phone banks or canvassing for local candidates.
- Join the MoveOn Text Messaging Team to help mobilize voters across the country.
- Write last-minute letters to unlikely voters around the country. (Note: Letters MUST be mailed by Tuesday, October 30th!)
WEEK 1 Outreach Tip: Help Others Get to the Polls
Make a list of acquaintances and casual contacts, then put them in order with who you think might be least likely to vote at the top. Pick the top 3 least likely to vote, then send them each a note or give them a call. Just ask if they’re planning to vote, and offer to share with them any of the info you’ve gathered so far: Registration Status and Sample Ballot, Early Voting Schedule, and #NixAllSix.
Remind people they can register or update their registration at one-stop voting, but only through the end of this week at an Early Voting location. On Election Day, voters have to already be registered at their current address.
Talk, listen, and find out who needs what kind of info or incentive to vote. Then offer to help.
