Door Knocking Underway!

Posted 12 October 2018

We need volunteers who are willing to go knocking on doors to get people out to vote. We will only be visiting registered Democrats and Unaffiliated voters. We'll talk to them about the issues that they most care about, remind them about Election Day and Early Voting, offer to provide a ride to the poll, and pass out campaign materials preassembled in convenient bags.

 

 For those with Smart Phones, the list of homes can be downloaded through an easy-to-use app. We've got folks at the ready to train everyone in its use. Half hour training max. Then we'll get you the bags and send you on your way. Door knock on your own, or bring some friends along for the nice walk. Get out in the County and meet you Democratic neighbors!

 

Join us on October 20th: 11 to 1pm, 1-3pm, and/or 3-5pm for training or email nlloydschultz@mddems.org to arrange training for another day. Let’s get out there and have some good conversations with voters..

Bag Assembly in Your Home

Help us assemble canvassing bags! We're going out and knocking on thousands of doors in the County, but we're not going empty handed. We've got bags of goodies for each household which include candidate information, a how-to-vote guide, information on voter registration, an explanation of the ballot initiative, and even some absentee ballot requests.

We have these items broken out into 100 piece lots, so we need volunteers to stuff the bogas with one of each item. Come by the Democratic Headquarters during Monday, Wednesday, or Friday from 12:30 to 3pm to pick up your set. Or contact us today with your email and address and we'll get these 100 piece lots to you. You can assemble them in the comfort of your own living room while you watch tv or over your morning coffee.

You can drop your completed bags off at Democratic Headquarters in Prince Frederick, or contact us when your hundred bags are complete, and we'll swing by and pick them up!

Get Ready for 2018

The election cycle this year is extremely important and very exciting. Calvert County has some great candidates for local office already filed and running, and we’re still looking for more. Democrats in Calvert County are in a position to retrieve the governorship, further solidify democratic control of the state legislature, and Turn Calvert Blue! But we need your help. Here’s how you can be part of the movement:

CCDCCVolunteer on a campaign. Want to Turn Calvert Blue, but can’t run for office yourself? There are lots of great candidates already running who need support and resources. Get in touch with us, or contact them directly to find out how you can help.

Help get out the vote! There are lots of Democrats in Calvert County, but we need them to get to the polls! Consider volunteering as a precinct captain, or precinct volunteer to connect with your neighbors and get them to turn out to the polls. We’ll be setting up a poll-driver network shortly, so watch for information on how you can volunteer to be a driver on Election Day. If you are ready to help Turn Calvert Blue, get in touch with us right away!CCDCC

Donate. We understand that not everyone has time to contribute to a campaign, cause, or office. So if you want to help but can’t find the time, consider donating today.

After 2018 elections:

There is more to government than just elected office. The Board of County Commissioners relies on the input from citizen volunteer advisors to make decisions.

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.
