October Canvass – “Let’s All Vote! 2022”
October 8 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Help us get progressive voters to the polls!
Direct personal outreach is proven to have a positive effect on getting sporadic voters to actually vote. And this year, when the stakes for democracy are so high and voter turnout is often low, progressive voters who need an extra prod of encouragement and information can make all the difference in the election results.
These are the voters who need to hear from us. And we need YOUR help to reach out to them.
Each canvass starts with a short training and includes everything you need — instructions, script, demos, walk list, voter handouts, and instructions for using the MiniVAN app for recording results. We’ll use a modified form of deep canvassing, where the focus is on engaging in real conversations with real people about issues matter to them.
Our information this year is more pointed. While we are strictly nonpartisan in our voter registration and public tabling outreach, our door-to-door outreach includes a comparison chart for voters showing where the candidates stand on key issues, including reproductive rights, gun safety, renewable energy, and more.
We always include an up-to-date voter handout with all the key voting dates and links and info, as well as the Early Voting Schedule for Buncombe County. Our goal is to make sure every voter we talk with has access to all the information they need in order to vote — and that they feel that their voice matters and their vote counts.
So Join Us!
We canvass in pairs, so you always have a buddy. No prior experience needed! And you’ll have plenty of time to practice and feel comfortable before going out.
We’ll also regather afterwards for a debrief (and maybe a beer!) for everyone who can join.
If you can’t make it this time, mark your calendar for the next canvass on Sunday, October 16, in Oakley. If this doesn’t work at all, please get in touch and we’ll find another voter outreach opportunity that fits your interests and schedule. We have a lot to do in a short time. So join in!
Be sure to click on the REGISTER button above, so we can know how many canvassers to expect.
We look forward to seeing you there!
