With 8 weeks to go until the election, here are some ways to get involved:
Week 8 – Start working on your favorite candidate’s campaign – put out a lawn sign, write a letter to the editor, and brag to your friends and families about your efforts. Go to ActBlue and contribute to one or more candidates. As little as $5 helps! https://secure.actblue.com/contribute/page/rutland
Week 7 – Attend the Monday Sept 17 Rutland County Democratic Meeting to hear from candidates and learn more about how you can lend a helping hand; attend the Tuesday Sept 18 Castleton Indivisible Meeting to learn about grassroots activities in our community; attend their postcarding party on Friday Sept 21 for nationwide elections; and attend the Saturday Sept 22 NAACP Rutland forum to meet @Christineforvt.
Week 6 – Make sure everyone knows that early voting has started; encourage friends and family to vote and to vote early.
Week 5 – Go doorknocking with a candidate and learn more about your community in the process.
Week 4 – Attend the Friday October 12 Castleton Indivisible postcarding party for nationwide elections.
Week 3 – Join a Get-out-the-vote canvas. Don’t know where one’s being held? Ask us.
Week 2 – Attend the Thursday October 25 Castleton Indivisible postcarding party for local elections; march with the Democrats in the Saturday October 27 Rutland City Halloween Parade.
Week 1 – Encourage friends and family to vote; volunteer to join a candidate at the polls on voting day (even a few minutes of standing on the line can make a world of difference to a tired candidate eager for a little company)
Hope to see you at one or more of these events over the next few weeks!
