Election 2020


Listen to the Messenger!

Are YOU Ready for the Big Push!

If you haven’t been making calls or texting, now is the time. As we move into the final days of the election we will need to limit Resistance Cafe participation to volunteers who have phone banking or texting experience. So after October 16th, we will not be able to offer training support at the Cafes. If you want to participate in the final push before the election here’s what you can do: 

 To Make Calls

To Text

But as always, get in touch if you have questions.
Email us at leanleftcvt@gmail.com

“As much as I personally love texting, my recommendation to anyone who is choosing between texting and calling is going to be MAKE CALLS every single time! Phone banking has the most evidence of being effective at getting out the vote.”

:badger:WisDems Final Training This MondayWould you like text get-out-the-vote for the Wisconsin Democrats in 2020?  The final training for new texters is Monday, October 12 at 8pm EDT.
Sign up here

The WisDems use ThruText to text and Slack for support and communication! This is an especially good fit for someone who has used ThruText and/or texted for candidates before, but is good for beginners too. If you are brand-new to texting, I do recommend reviewing the self-training resources first just to get oriented. 
 As always if you have questions or need support around texting for BIG wins in November Let me know and I’ll do my best to help! Contact me here.
