We meet every Thursday 4-7pm at the Ix Art Park (on the Brazos Tacos lawn if nice weather, inside the restaurant when not-so-nice). Come when and for how long your schedule and mood dictate; it needn’t be every week or the entire three hours.
Today (Thursday 8/31) we’ll start writing GOTV cards to City of Charlottesville “Lean Democratic” voters, stressing the importance of turning out for Creigh Deeds. If you can, bring a chair and a clipboard/something similar to write on.
There are lots of different ways to help over the next few months; do what’s most comfortable for you! For example:
- Writing postcards and making follow-up phone calls to newly- registered voters. That combination has been very successful, resulting in this group voting at a consistent 75-80% rate in 2021-2023.
- Distributing “walk sheet” name and address lists of Dem-leaning people for our campaign canvassers to visit.
- Sending some specific issue-message postcards (a new idea we’re considering).
- Writing postcards and phoning people we’ve previously registered.
- Writing postcards and phoning for campaigns near Charlottesville.
For the past three years, we’ve had many many dedicated people joining in. In 2022, we had 100+ volunteers who attended at least once to eat, drink, chat, and pitch in together to help our Democratic candidates win; many attended almost every week! If you’ve joined us before, please join us again. If you haven’t tried it yet, come on down and meet fellow Dems and enjoy yourself while working for a big win on November 7!
