Phone Banking

CCDCC Phone Banking

The Calvert Democratic Club is reaching out to registered Democrats who voted in 2016 but not in 2014 to see what issues matter to them and encourage them to come out for this year's mid-term elections. If you've never made calls before, don't be afraid to give it a try. We know it can seem intimidating, but it's also rewarding to talk to fellow Democrats who are fired up about what's going on locally and nationally. Several volunteers have said it was easier than they thought and that any nervousness faded away quickly. And remember that you won't be making calls alone, and that someone will be there to walk you through any issues. A new volunteer can get trained on the system and ready to make calls in about 10 minutes. There are a lot of Democrats who didn't vote in 2014 that we need to get in touch with, so even if you can only sign up for one session a month, or can only make it for an hour, please consider pitching in.

 

The Club will be hosting two sessions a week - Sundays from 12-2pm and Wednesday evenings from 6-8pm at Democratic Headquarters in Prince Frederick. You can sign up for this session here.

If you have any questions about phone banking, please email calvertdemclub@gmail.com

Here’s how you can be part of the movement:

Consider Giving Some of Your Time to Turning Out the Vote

Posted on 25 August 2017CCDCC

With the 2018 elections fast approaching the Central Committee is in need of volunteers to turn out the vote in Calvert County! While the CCDCC always operates with a volunteer force managing the Headquarters, running food drives, and performing various community outreach programs, election years present a great many more tasks. We need volunteers to staff information booths at community events and at polls on election days. With over 35 thousand registered Democratic or unaffiliated voters to get in touch with in the next year, the Calvert Democrats need people to begin phone-banking and door-knocking right away. If we are going to turn out a democratic election in Calvert County in 2018, we need to start canvassing now. If you can spare a few hours a week to this, please get in touch with us right away.
