Hey, Team Mel. We are just over a month out from the election and we need all hands on deck! We have a variety of volunteer opportunities for those of you who would like to get involved. The main priorities are phone calls to voters, literature drops in neighborhoods, and writing postcards. Any help you can offer will help push us over the finish line in April! Here are the details:
We use an online system, Votebuilder, which can be accessed from a computer any time between 10am and 8pm daily. If you would like to call voters and answer questions they may have about me and my campaign, you would be able to sign in via a link and mark your responses. If you have not used Votebuilder yet, we will have training days to make sure you are comfortable on Sunday, February 28th, at 4pm and 7pm; Monday, March 1st, at 7pm; or Lindsay, my manager, can set up something with you if those times do not work for you. Phone calls are a great way to directly talk to neighbors and folks who may not have been tuned into the election otherwise!
Lit drops! Let's get out on Colorado's beautiful March days to leave some information about Team Mel on our neighbors' doors. We will be having two major lit drop weekends in March. The meeting times are:
Saturday March 6th @ 10am at McGraw Elementary
Sunday March 7th @ 11am at McGraw Elementary
Saturday March 13th @ 10am at McGraw Elementary
Sunday March 14th @ 11am at McGraw Elementary
Bring a partner, a fully charged smartphone, water, and walking shoes! If you need to be trained on how to use the MiniVan app, please arrive 10-15 minutes early. If you do not have a smartphone but would still like to walk, we can provide paper versions as well. If you would like to do lit drops, but these days do not work for you, Lindsay can get you set up for a day that works better!
If phone calls or walking neighborhoods don't sound like your jam, we have postcards for Team Mel that need to be sent to some of our neighbors as well! You will be given a list of addresses and can write a short message explaining why you're on Team Mel. You can request as many as you'd like, generally in increments of 25. If you have not maxed out your donation ($75/person) and would like to include stamps, we appreciate it! If you have already donated the max amount or would prefer not to purchase stamps, we will provide them for you.
I can't do this alone and I appreciate all of you and your time SO MUCH! Reach out to my campaign manager, Lindsay, by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to RSVP to our training and/or volunteer events and to be set up with supplies to help us win this election!
