8 weeks until the election – ways to get involved

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!

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!
