Get Active Locally (Calaveras County)
Each of us has a responsibility to contribute to our local community. Here are some fun and easy ways to participate in Calaveras County.
Writing Letters to the Editor: These are always helpful; you can focus on issues that are important to you!
Voter Registration: The CCDCC is engaged in voter registration throughout the year. Let us know if you’re willing to help register people to vote. We’ll give you training and help with supplies. Do your part to help make Calaveras County Blue!
Postcard Writing: We typically ramp up our post-carding efforts during biannual election cycles. Our goal is to get Calaveras County registered Democrats and “No Party Preference” voters to the polls. We provide postcards, addresses, and postage. You provide the handwriting!
Phone Banking: Like to chat with neighbors on the phone? Then this is for you. You can call from your home and connect with other voters in your area about the upcoming election. We provide lists and scripts to make it easy and fun!
Canvassing: We sometimes work with campaign committees to get out the vote via door-to-door canvassing for candidates that we support. This is always a fun activity!
Join a Board or Commission: Calaveras County has numerous citizen Boards & Commissions consisting of community volunteers who advise local government. It is important to have Democratic voices represented on these Boards and Commissions, both to “build our bench” as well as ensure our values are expressed in public decisions.

Work with Calaveras Democrats: We have many opportunities for you to get involved with the Committee and our activities. We are actively seeking additional Committee members (both Regular voting members as well as non-voting Associate members) and always need help with fundraising, event planning, and public outreach.
