VOTERIZER MADE SIMPLE
Last week Adam Lesh, the mad genius behind Voterizer — by far the fastest way to register a fresh new Democrat — conducted a wonderful run-through of Voterizer.org as well as its lightning-fast, highly customizable field version. Adam also shared tips on how you can co-brand Voterizer for your organization… adding your own language and logo, creating notes about the elections most important to you, and downloading info from the voters you register! Missed it? Never fear! You can watch the whole video HERE.

Field Team 6 runs on volunteer power. And this week we’re spotlighting the amazing Melanie Burgess! A SoCal native who’s lived in Vancouver, B.C. with her family for the past four years (after making the decision to relocate on the day that a certain wannabe dictator was inaugurated), Melanie got involved with FT6 in the summer of 2020. She’s an organizational queen who handles the huge job of managing the FT6 calendar while also taking on countless other behind-the-scenes jobs. She’s also thrown herself into working on the state briefs for our current Voter Drive in a Box initiative! When she’s not saving the world from behind her computer, you can catch her hunting for mid-century modern treasures at thrift shops and vintage sales (and on Facebook Marketplace). Here’s what FT6 has meant to Melanie, in her own words: Starting this volunteer work really helped me regain a sense of accomplishment, separate from my family, after so many years as a stay-at-home mom. Knowing I’m doing my small part has prevented me from feeling powerless and made a world of difference for me! Melanie is an indispensable part of the FT6 team – and her Standard Poodle Lucy is pretty darn cute, too. Thank you, Melanie, for every single thing that you do!
DONATE HERE if you can help us raise the money to buy eligible voter data! In other CA-39 news, we’re launching a new postcard campaign! We’re asking likely Democrats to register to vote, and vote NO to recalling Governor Gavin Newsom. We need all hands on deck to kill this Republican power grab, so grab your addresses HERE! (And keep an eye out for more anti-recall postcard efforts in other districts!)
