It may seem like we just finished campaigning but, in Wisconsin, we can’t rest on our laurels. It is time to start preparing for the all-important Fall of ’24 election.
Canvass: One Year To Win!
Team Gold is joining WisDems in canvassing now to build our foundation for the 2024 election. We are hosting our next Bridge Building canvass on Saturday, November 4th. We will be talking with our neighbors about what issues matter most to them and identifying likely Democratic voters. This work will enable us to focus on turning out Democratic voters next year. Shifts are at 9:00, 12:00 and 3:00. Diana and Don Trask are hosting at 9 Winterset Circle.
Can’t canvass but want to help?
There are a number of ways you can help elect Democrats in addition to knocking on doors. You can make phone calls to voters; you can make phone calls to prospective volunteers; you can provide support to a canvass staging location. Or, you can teach volunteers how to use MiniVAN, the app that enables you to canvass without using paper and a clipboard. If you are interested in becoming a MiniVAN trainer, sign up for our “train-the-trainer” session on Tuesday, October 24th, at 7:00. This will be held at Barbara Arnold’s home, 1826 Breezy Trail.
If you want to know about other opportunities to support Team Gold, let us know by sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why we do this work
For a good explanation of the importance of turning out the vote in Madison and Dane County, here is a great article from Politico. While the story focuses on a number of college towns, the work being done by Dane County volunteers such as yourself is the lead story.
