Calls. Postcards. Winning. TPAB Events This Week!

8 mins read

Flipping the General Assembly and delivering PA to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris is well within our grasp.

We’re 51 days away from the election, and ballots will start going out MUCH sooner. That’s why we’re making nearly 100,000 calls a WEEK to urge Democrats to vote.

We need your help to talk to voters about our strong Democratic candidates up and down the ballot, and fight back against vote-by-mail disinformation.

Sign up to phone bank on weekdays or on weekends.

Can’t call? Donate to Turn PA Blue’s organizing work.


TONIGHT – BLUE BASH, 7PM – 10PM ET

Win the battle for PA with a multicultural celebration of theater, music, comedy, and dance featuring live performances, along with red-to-blue candidates for PA House. This special event is free but donations are encouraged to ensure victory for Dems up and down the ballot! Enjoy the Blue Bash here.


PHONE BANKING!

We’ll be phone banking Monday-Thursday with shifts from 5-7 and 7-9 PM for House candidates and Saturday/Sunday from 12-2, 2-4, and 4-6 PM for Senate candidates. 

You can see the full candidate line-up HERE.

All the calls listed here are using the autodialer ThruTalk. There are two ways to receive encouragement and support.

You can head over to Slack during any of those shifts, or for those who like to dial together there will be Zoom parties available! You’ll receive instructions on all of this, a script, and talking points when you sign up.
New phone bankers welcome! You can also sign up for a training session, offered on Mondays from 7-8 pm here.

Below is the schedule for the next week:
Monday, September 14: Harold Hayes (PA-HD18/Bucks County) is a union plumber fighting to take a seat Republicans narrowly won in a special election. Sign up to make calls!

ELECTION DAY HELP

TPAB is already planning for Election Day. Do you want to volunteer but are just not sure what you want to do?

Sign up here for updates about all the ways you can get involved to help protect the vote and turn PA blue!

Or, you can sign up directly with the PA Dems Voter Protection Team HERE.


LITERATURE DROPS

Some campaigns have started to do some limited canvassing and literature drops in a safe and socially distant way. We understand that due to COVID, this isn’t for everyone, but if you’re interested in getting outside, masking up and hitting the pavement to connect with voters,

let us know and we will connect you with a campaign.


LAST CALL FOR POSTCARDS!

We’ve sent out nearly 600,000 postcards to voters so far.

We have two exciting postcard projects available: Get of the Vote postcards and our new voter registration effort. Our postcard kits include messaging, addresses, and detailed instructions. You supply the handwritten touch and stamps. We want to complete these projects ASAP.

Order your postcard kit HERE!
