This is the second edition 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.

Again, if you missed the Kick-Off, take a look at our slides to read about the key takeaways.
