It’s time. The midterm elections are fast approaching. Now is the time to reach out to voters, and there are several ways to do that. Please join your fellow activists at a Get Out the Vote Action Brunch in Florence on Sunday October 16, from 10:30am to 12:30pm.
Rachael Naismith and David Arbeitman, members of Indivisible Northampton-Swing Left Western Mass, invite you to their home at 357 N. Farms Rd. in Florence. Here is what we’re planning:
We’ll start with a quick overview of three methods that local grassroots activists use to reach voters: phone banking, postcard writing, and texting.
You’ll have the opportunity to sign up for phone banking if that interests you. If you would like to use texting to reach out to voters, there will be a training session and an opportunity to do some real-time texting. If you would prefer to write postcards, some postcards will be available. Please bring some cash to help offset costs.
And of course there will be plenty of coffee as well as snacks.
We continue to be cautious about Covid: you’re welcome to join us if you are vaccinated. If we are lucky, we will have some outdoor seating, but we may be indoors. Masks are optional.
We are setting a cap of 25 people so please sign up soon by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or texting 413-530-3863.
If you want to text voters and have never texted voters before, please let me know so we can save time by getting you set up in advance.
Hoping to see you at our house on October 16!
