Nov. 8th Get Out The Vote in DuPage County
Get out the Vote (GotV) with the DuPage Greens on Election Day!
It's going to take every volunteer we have putting in 100% on Election Day to turn out the vote for Dr. Jill Stein for President, Scott Summers for US Senate (IL) and Tim Curtin for Illinois State Comptroller.
Starting at 5:00am on Election Day, our campaign office at 213 S. Wheaton Ave., Wheaton, IL will be up and running. We need volunteers filling the following roles:
- Polling Place Sign Placers to put signs at designated polling places before the polls open and retreiving the signs after the polls close.
- Electioneers stationed outside polling places with our campaign literature. This is the most critical role! Many American voters make up their minds in the voting booth, and can be persuaded by a last-minute handbill or flyer. We have a list of DuPage County's most campaign friendly polling places (you can see them on the map here), and we want volunteers stationed at as many of them as possible, for as many hours as possible, this Election Day.
- Office staff providing office coverage, printing and cutting flyers for electioneers and providing refreshments.
You'll be assigned polling places near your home, yard signs to place at the polling places, flyers and recommendations on the best polling places to flyer.
Coming by for even just fifteen minutes or half an hour makes a difference. Donating a half-day or a full day makes a huge difference! The prime times are 6-8am, 11am-1pm and 5-7pm. We'll have coffee and pastries for the morning shift, and sandwiches (including vegetarian) in the afternoon. At 7:00pm, we'll close down our GotV efforts and shift to our Election Night party.
We will also be meeting Monday Election Eve 7-9pm at the Wheaton Green Party HQ, 213 S. Wheaton Ave., Wheaton, IL to discuss our Election Day GotV plan. Volunteers will have the opportunity to pick up signs for polling places and flyers for electioneering ahead of the early morning start. Here's the Facebook Event.
Can't make it into the campaign office on Election Day? We can still use your help as a remote phonebanker making GotV calls to our confirmed voters. These aren't persuasion calls -- everyone on the list has already indicated that they're voting Green; we just want to make sure they've cast their ballots. Sign up for remote phonebanking on our website and we'll email you the needed numbers and call script.
With everyone's help, we're poised to make history on Tuesday, Nov. 8th. Be a part of the movement -- volunteer to Get out the Vote!
Who knows, it might be that your volunteer effort pushes us over the top resulting in qualifying for immediate matching federal funds during the next presidential cycle and regaining equal ballot access in Illinois!
