Don’t stop now!
What Have You Done to Help A Campaign?

We are only days away from the most historic election day of our lifetime. Those of you reading this newsletter are already tapped into the political scene and fully aware of our elections, but there are some citizens who are unaware of what’s at stake. Perhaps they are a new voter and feel intimidated by the choices? Or, maybe they are juggling multiple jobs and don’t have time to watch TV? Whatever their reasons, there are voters who need our call and coaching to vote. I know you’re thinking to yourself how can I make another call to these voters, but I’ll ask the question, how can we not? We are so close to the finish line – don’t stop now!

Consider helping out any of the candidates who attended our October LD20 Meeting? Thanks to all of our wonderful candidates and propositions representatives: Hiral Tipirneni, Michael Muscato, Anna Tovar, Bill Mundell, Whitney Walker, Aaron Connor, Julie Gunnigle, Deborah Begay, Fred DuVal (Prop 449), Councilmember Debra Stark, Jodi Liggett (Prop 444), Chad Campbell (Prop 207), Eric Chalmers (Prop 208), Davita Solter, Sheriff Paul Penzone, Doug Ervin, and Judy Schwiebert. Remember, the finish line is sooooo close – it’s time to RUN and make those calls.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

Canvass from Your Couch for our LD20 Legislative candidates!

Tell the world (okay, maybe just LD20 voters) about our LD20 Legislative Candidates from the comfort of your own home.  What’s a phone bank? What’s a canvass?  What if I’ve never made a call?  LD20’s Field Organizer Extraordinaire will get you started. Simply sign-up for the training ahead of time.  Visit: https://www.mobilize.us/arizonald20/or contact Mary Fortney at mfortney@azdem.org, if interested.


Be a poll observer – help preserve Democracy!

Maricopa County Democratic Party (MCDP) is looking for volunteers who can help out at the polls by being a Poll Observer.  Your role would be to observe the activities at the polls and report back any incidents of voter intimidation.  It’s imperative that everyone who wants to vote, be able to vote and not feel threatened by anyone.  MCDP will provide training.  This year, more than ever, this activity will be critical to preserve our democracy.  If you can help out, please sign-up at: www.azdem.org/pollobserver


Help install Biden-Harris / Kelly signs in LD20

We have a few signs which need to be placed at your favorite street intersection(s) or on the side of the street in LD20.  Remember, these signs don’t do us any good if they are in our home.  If you can help install signs, please contact Rivko Knox at 602-942-6436 or bvaandrk@earthlink.net
