Countdown to Election Day: What can we do?

We hope you are as energized as we were watching the Democratic National Convention. Let’s put that energy to work. As Uncle Joe says, we haven’t got a minute to lose. Below, you will find a multitude of volunteer opportunities. At least one should suit your schedule and temperament.

Phone banking

There are phone banking opportunities at the Presidential level as well as for Senate races and State Level races in Pennsylvania and North Carolina which involve races with the potential to flip the chamber from Red to Blue. This is an especially big deal this year because these legislatures will be redrawing the election districts for the next 10 years.

There are lots of ways to phone bank for Biden/Harris. For the most exhaustive list of options sign up at  

If you would prefer not to phone bank for a specific candidate this list also includes phone banks to encourage college students to register and to recruit local volunteers to help turn out the vote.
