Get Out The Vote 2018

The Ward 6 Democrats plan to organize volunteers to support Get Out The Vote (GOTV) efforts in key congressional races for the Tuesday, November 6 midterm elections.
 
We are focused on congressional races that meet these criteria:
  1. Statehood/DC Affairs: We will support Democratic candidates who have confirmed they support DC Statehood. We will work to defeat Republican candidates who support congressional interference in DC affairs. #HandsOffDC
  2. Proximity: We will work in districts geographically close to DC.
  3. Impact: We will work in districts that stand a good chance of being one of the 23 seats we need to flip the House this November. We want our contribution to impact the composition of the House of Representatives.
How you can help:
  • Canvassing: There will be coordinated volunteer trips, training and transportation as we near Election Day.
  • Phone banking: This will include information sharing, training and periodic phone banking parties.
  • Postcard writing: This includes information sharing, training and periodic postcard writing parties.
  • Fundraising: This includes information sharing about DC-based events and opportunities to host your own fundraiser.
