MIDTERM VOLUNTEER WEEKLY BULLETIN

October 31, 2018

This is the twelfth issue of the Midterm Volunteer Weekly Bulletin! You are receiving this email because you expressed interest in MVCAN’s activities in support of key midterm races. We will continue to produce this bulletin every Wednesday through Election Day. The Bulletin will provide information about upcoming phone/text banks and door-to-door canvasses, along with training opportunities, and links for signing up for these events.


FIRST: ACTIVITIES FOR THE FINAL WEEK

             

If you haven’t had the opportunity to help out yet, the last four days of the campaign is critical. It’s not too late to make a difference.

If you’re already working, this is the time to finish the job.

There will be canvassing and phone/text banking all four days for key midterm races in several places. The goal is to make sure Democratic voters know their polling place, have a plan to vote and, if vote-by-mail, have returned their ballot.

In our region, Josh Harder’s race for Congress against incumbent Republican Jeff Denham continues to be rated as toss-up, as does Jacky Rosen’s contest in Nevada with incumbent Republican Senator Dean Heller. In Marin County, we have the opportunity to elect a real progressive--Anna Pletcher--to the important position of District Attorney.

For activities which involve traveling to nearby Central Valley locations or Reno, we will help form carpools, and, if you wish to stay overnight in any of these locations or Las Vegas, provide you with information about lodging options.

Canvassing Opportunities


Josh Harder for Congress—Modesto, CA
Canvassing Saturday through Tuesday, multiple shifts
For more information and to sign-up: Here
For those of you who do not already have a history of canvassing in Tracy for Josh Harder, please consider Modesto as your canvassing location. While canvassing anywhere in CD-10 is valuable, there is probably a greater need for new volunteers in Modesto (as well as Manteca and Turlock) compared to Tracy.
