VN! District 5 CalAway Canvassing
District 5 CalAway Canvassing
What does VN! mean in the calendar? It means we’re looking for volunteers. This could be you.
Calaveras Democrats are taking part in CalAway‘s voter response program that they successfully demonstrated in the 2018 elections.
Basically, we send out teams to go to registered Democrats’ homes who haven’t voted recently. We discuss the importance of the upcoming election and get them to commit to vote. CalAway helps find volunteers to come work with us on these canvassing days.
So, in the 5th District in Calaveras County, Janice Bassett is our coordinator (Yeh Janice!) and is forming CalAway teams. We have the following dates scheduled.
- December 7
- December 28
- January 11
- January 25
If you’re willing to help, please email Janice at: JanicesGreatGifts@hotmail.com
The Calaveras County Democratic Party/California Away Team project targets infrequent Democratic leaning voters with a unique and proven voter commitment. This canvassing project has raised voting rates in previous election cycles by at least 4% and as much as 10%. Our project is all-volunteer, and all funds donated go to pay for printing, postage, and canvassing event costs. When you give to the CCD/CAT project, your money is laser-focused on getting Democratic leaning voters to the polls and nothing else.
