Let's All Vote!
Want to see big change in 2020?
Indivisible AVL has launched a year-long voter engagement campaign to get progressive voters to the polls and change the direction of our state and our nation in November 2020! Check out the full schedule of events here.
TOGETHER we are going to turn things around!
Research shows that person-to-person connections (conversations with voters!) are the key to getting voters to the polls. Indivisible AVL is coordinating two strategies for one-on-one voter outreach: Canvassing and Community Conversations (connecting with your own friends and neighbors).
DOOR-TO DOOR CANVASS
Talking to Progressive Voters
2nd Weekend of Every Month
Saturday 10-1 or Sunday 2-5
Different neighborhoods in Buncombe County
No experience needed! For each month's canvass we provide training and all the materials you need, including an easy-to-use phone app. And we all canvass with a buddy. Childcare provided by a certified K-12 art teacher. Find the date and location of the next canvass here and sign up today!
COMMUNITY CONVERSATIONS Talk to Your Friends!
3rd Tuesday of Every Month
6:00 - 7:00 pm
Various locations in Buncombe County
Come learn how to use the easy Empower phone app to connect with voters in your own social network. Each month's open sessions provide training and support, then you will be ready to contact your friends and family whenever, wherever and however you choose. We're also available to bring the training to your group or organization. Email email@example.com to arrange a time.
We Know What Works to Get Voters to the Polls
- Canvassing - Join us for door-to-door canvassing once a month. We'll visit with progressive voters to find out what they care about, make sure they have information about voter ID and election dates/times, and encourage them to go to the polls in March (primaries!) and November 2020.
- Community Conversations with the Empower App - We will share an easy-to-use phone app that will allow you to have impactful conversations with people you know (friends, neighbors, co-workers) to get out the vote. Learn more at our next training / support meeting on Tuesday, February 18, 6 pm-7:30 pm at the Asheville YWCA, 185 S French Broad Ave.
Does talking to voters sound intimidating? It’s really not hard! We will provide training and scripts for canvassing and community conversations, send you out with a buddy for canvassing, and you will be talking with voters that share similar concerns and values-- no need to convince anyone of anything other than to get out and VOTE!
We’re talking to voters that are concerned about health care, economic justice, climate change, racial equity, the rights of women, immigrant rights and more.
Need proof that it works?
Flip NC, a voter engagement organization based in Durham, increased turnout among “low-propensity” (unlikely to vote), progressive voters by 16% through canvassing efforts. Even when voters weren’t home to talk with canvassers, leaving literature for them increased voter turnout by 4-6%. Flip NC's work was key to electing progressive candidates in several NC House districts that had never before had progressive representation.
NC Wins notes that there are enough progressive voters in Buncombe County to shape the results in key NC races -- the US Senate race, our Governor's race and even the Presidential race. We just have to get voters to the polls!
If we all work at this, we truly can MAKE CHANGE! Join us!
Lots of Ways to Help Out!
