2020 Voter Engagement Events

Talking to voters is the most effective way to get out the vote. Join Indivisible AVL to educate and motivate voters to go to the polls this fall. Together we can elect progressive leaders.

Help us make big change in 2020! COVID-19 won't stop us from getting out the progressive vote this fall!

Our monthly door-to-door canvass is now a monthly "virtual canvass," using the awesome ThruTalk platform to talk with voters by phone. All you need is a computer with a microphone & speakers or a cell phone and ThruTalk staffers connect you voters in real time.

Each month's virtual canvass starts with a short training and our organizers support you virtually throughout the event. Watch this short video to learn more about the ThruTalk technology.

We have also launched a Neighborhood Outreach Program, for volunteers who would like to reach out to folks in their own neighborhoods. Individuals who feel comfortable going door to door and would like to reach out are encouraged to set up an outreach program with one of our 2020 Vote Team leaders. We provide Neighborhood Outreach volunteers with voter handouts, training, and support. To sign up, email 2020vote@indivisibleavl.org.

Our newest outreach strategy starts October 15, with an ambitious "Friends to the Polls" vote tripling strategy. Every day throughout the Early Voting period, October 15th through October 31st, volunteers will be stationed outside seven Early Voting sites to greet voters as they leave the polls, asking them to text or call three friends and ask them to vote. Learn more and sign up here.

All volunteers involved in in-person events are expected to wear masks and observe social distancing and standard safety protocols.

Learn more about our overall strategy on our 2020 Vote page.
