THIS IS A JOB FOR FIELD TEAM 6

All the headlines add up to this: we must win in November. The best way to do that? Say it with me now… Register Democrats! And now it’s more important than ever to register them to vote by mail.

Our secret weapon is our TurboVote link – fieldteam6.turbovote.org – which allows you to register to vote online (and by mail in AZ, CA, FL & PA). Our heartfelt thanks to Indivisible for developing this tool and sharing it with us. The more we spread this link, the more good we’ll do!

Here’s the plan:

We lead with Field Team 6 phone and text banks in every swing state we can, using our TurboVote link to register Democrats to vote by mail. In swing states we can’t reach, we rely on our national network of allies, curating our events feed to provide only the most high-impact events to our volunteer heroes.

Simultaneously, we channel all our creativity into NEW WAYS to get our TurboVote link out there, including videos and memes. And that’s where you come in! You can help by contacting us with your own ideas, AND by posting our videos and memes wherever you can! Send them to your family, post them on your social media, project them on the sides of buildings! 

TO SUM UP: We will register Democrats in a house. We will register Democrats with a mouse. We will register Democrats here and there. We will register Democrats everywhere!
