HELP WITH GEORGIA RUNOFF ELECTIONS!
LWVUS is partnering with the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights next week for a GOTV Text-A-Thon for Georgia Voters! We reached over 400,000 voters last month in our text-a-thon for the general election. Help us turnout voters for the Georgia runoff elections!
As you likely already know, two influential U.S. Senate seats are headed for runoff elections - and millions of Georgia voters need to know how best to participate. This is why the League of Women Voters is teaming up with the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights next week on November 18th and 19th, starting at 4:30 pm ET for statewide get-out-the-vote text-a-thon in Georgia!
We will be texting voters across Georgia to remind them about important runoff election dates and information. Interested volunteers can sign up for a specific shift on either Wednesday or Thursday and join a training starting at 4:30 pm ET or 5:30 pm ET on either day. We will be using a tool called Hustle. You can find more information about it here.
Hustle is a two-way texting platform that will allow you to have a real conversation with the person you are texting. We will have a script and answers to common questions to pull from along with basic engagement guidelines. Again, there will be in-depth training you can sign-up for, and each training will be limited in size to ensure everyone is ready to go.
Do you enjoy talking with people on the phone? If so, this volunteer opportunity is just right for you. Call new members and welcome them to the League! League background information, information on future League meetings, and a short membership questionnaire to obtain member background and interest will be provided to you to use when talking with new members. If interested, please contact Vicki Boyer.
Public Education Action Team
We continuously seeks new members to attend our zoom meetings and join their team. The Team is looking for volunteers to help with writing letters to the editor and developing other outreach material to promote its cause. Please contact Ruth Ann Groh or Alman.
Program Planning Team
If you want to work with some terrific Leaguers to brainstorm and plan activities/ talks about voting, education or redistricting, or topics relevant to our three counties. If you are interested, please contact Krishna Mondal.
Voter Education to Groups/Organizations
Help us get connected to your groups/organizations (faith based, community, special interest, etc.). The Voter Services Team will provide video presentations and Q/A sessions on current voting laws, procedures, election schedule as well as a VOTE411 voter guide. Connect us with your group and we'll do the rest! If you have information, please contact Krishna Mondal.
Zoom Video Conference Facilitator
Need volunteers during our large events hosted via video conferences to monitor questions and "chats" from our virtual audience and convey them to the speakers. This is easy and we will train you! If you are interested, please contact Krishna Mondal.
