As always, the Electoral Team’s experienced leaders will  help coach you through the process individually. If you're new to calling or texting voters, they will teach you step-by-step. Please bring your charged cell phone and a laptop, ipad or tablet, and earbuds with a mic to the phone/text bank. The Saturday, Sunday and Wednesday phone/text banks recur every week.
