DISPATCH: GOTV Weekend, Days of Action & More!

Dear Democrats,

It seems like not too long ago we were gearing up for GOTV weekend! This Tuesday is another Election Day, this time voters in Taunton & Easton and Middlesex & Worcester Counties will choose their new State Representatives.

Two weeks ago, Democrats flipped two seats in the State Senate because you put in the work on the phones. You saw that a few hours of calls can go a long way in local races like these, especially when we all get involved.

We’re spending every second until polls close on Tuesday making sure voters either head to the polls or drop off their ballot and elect two more Democrats to the legislature. There are plenty of events happening this weekend, phone banks with some exciting special guests are listed below.

As always, send your virtual events to events@massdems.org and have a safe and healthy weekend!

All the best,

Allison Mitchell
MassDems Communications Manager

 

Ideas for Committees

Election Day is only a few days away. So, once again, here are 5 things you and your committee can do this weekend to make sure Carol Doherty and Dan Sena are elected to Massachusetts House of Representatives on June 2nd:

  • Sign up for a phone banking shift. What do we do when we can’t knock doors? We make calls! This is the most important thing you can do to make sure folks vote by Tuesday.
  • Try a little relational organizing. Live in the district? Know people that do? Just want to help recruit volunteers? Take out your phone right now and text 5 people about getting involved before Election Day. Help folks vote safely. Especially if you live in-district, educate your friends and family on vote-by-mail and social distancing at the polls. Voters should bring:
    • A cloth mask
    • Their own black, ballpoint pen
    • Gloves
    • Disinfecting wipes and hand sanitizer
  • Join a socially distant stand-out. Both campaigns are organizing socially distant standouts on Election Day. CLICK HERE to stand out for Carol (Taunton & Easton), CLICK HERE to stand out for Dan (Middlesex & Worcester Counties)!
  • Make a contribution. We’re in the final stretch, and a small contribution can go a long way. The campaigns have had to make a lot of adjustments over the past few months, and could use your support. Make a donation to Carol or Dan today.
