Volunteers Needed to Assist GOTV for Georgia

Senate Runoff Elections January 5, 2021

 

We have identified 4 ways to volunteer to Get Out The Vote (GOTV) for the 2 Senate Runoff elections in Georgia, to be held January 5, 2021:

1. LWVGA is mounting a campaign to mobilize volunteers to place door hangers, postcards and other GOTV campaigns.  They are starting in December.  You can sign up through the website: https://m.signupgenius.com/#!/showSignUp/lwvrunoff/5304266
    • We have been in touch with the LWV Coastal Georgia and Savannah is one location you may choose but, there are other locations in Georgia you may select. 
    • Go to their site to sign up and get an account by clicking the Green signup button
    • You will get an email confirming you signed up.  Open the email.
    • Follow the instructions in the email to complete your sign-up.
    • Contact Ilene Schwartz of our League if you have questions, or need help completing the sign-up process.  Imschwartz58 [at] gmail.com, or (703)795-0039 

If you are interested in registering new voters, go to https://newgeorgiaproject.org/volunteer/ to sign up.  They will email you with registration events that you may elect to participate in.

2. LWVUS is partnering with the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights next week for a GOTV Text-a-Thon for Georgia Voters.  There will be training on the technology tool (Hustle) and scripts on November 18, and additionally on November 19th, starting at 4:30. 
3. LWVSC has partnered with Reclaim the Vote targeting African-America voters in Georgia to do postcards, phone banking and texting.

4. Another organization is Vote Forward.  Vote Forward is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to empower grassroots volunteers to help register voters from under-represented populations to encourage them to vote.  You may register for an account to send letters to voters in Georgia on https://votefwd.org and follow the directions to register.
