GOTV! Weekly Phone Banking starting 8/31
This week’s Republican National Convention was a shocking reminder: Democracy itself is on the ballot in November. The breathtaking display of gaslighting, lawlessness, hatred, and bigotry was truly shocking.
We are in the fight of our lives, for our lives. It's clear that even 5 years into the Trump’s poisonous presence in our politics, the media isn’t plainly communicating what he is doing to our country. Institutions like the media, laws like the Hatch Act aren’t going to save us.
We have to do the work to save our country.
Starting Monday August 31st, the 46th LD Democrats will be hosting weekly Monday night phonebanks from 5-8pm working with the Washington Democratic Coordinated Campaign.
We know that phonebanks aren’t everyone’s cup of tea; they certainly aren’t my favorite outreach method. But the extended effects of COVID due to lack of a cohesive Federal resolonse is the 2020 disaster that the GOP has delivered us, and it is the primary outreach we can engage in responsibly. We have to recognize the stakes of this election, dig deep, and do things we might find uncomfortable to meet the moment.
We need you!
The phonebanks will be held through a manual dialing system, and simultaneously, we’ll be hosting a Zoom meeting. They will be co-hosted by the local Washington Democrats Coordinated Campaign field team for training, mutual support, and to help rapidly answer questions as they inevitably pop up. So make sure to sign up for both to be ready for Monday's phonebank party!

Because we are working closely with the Coordinated Campaign during these weekly phonebanks, please expect that sometimes we’ll be calling into our own home 46th District and identifying Democratic voters, and sometimes we’ll be calling into other districts with critical races where we can help boost Democratic turnout by reminding known Democratic voters to vote.
This year it is just as crucial that not only does everyone vote, but everyone knows how to vote.
The rough schedule will look like this:
- 5:00 – 5:20: Meet and Greet, Phonebank system training
- 5:20 – 7:30: Make those calls!
- 7:30 – Debrief, trade stories, huddle up
We look forward to seeing you there! And stay tuned for more ways to be involved in our GOTV efforts.
Yard signs, including Biden-Harris, will be available next week!
