We already know that in an election every vote counts, but what about every volunteer?
Working for a judicial campaign is a way for a person to directly implement change. Our campaign welcomes high school and college student volunteers who will play an integral role in the campaigning process by registering and mobilizing new voters.
What will I do as a volunteer?
Speak directly to voters
Go to the office and make phone calls or canvas. Canvasing includes knocking on doors, collecting information, registering and speaking to voters.
Reach out to others
Do something bold and unconventional, host house parties to engage political discussion. For students another kind of event is a Dorm Storm where students get together and hand out fliers in the dorms about the campaign.
Employ your digital skills.
As volunteers you bring energy to the campaign especially when it comes to social media.
How much time will I be committing?
Create your own schedule
It’s always up to you! If you want to spend an hour a week at an office or an hour a week with friends tabling on campus you can do that. If you want to spend six or seven hours a week working for the campaign we’d love to have you.
Students are confined by their class schedules and transportation limitations but there is always an abundance of work on political campaigns. I believe that the more time you put in it the more you learn, grow and take away from the experience.
Why should I volunteer?
To develop a better understanding of the political system and your personal views.
It is important for people to understand how political campaigns work and how they affect change in government. Use volunteering as an opportunity to learn what others have to say and refine your political beliefs. You’ll feel a sense of accomplishment from working on a campaign.
To make an impact, no matter your age.
Volunteering and getting involved taught me that I can make a difference and I can change the world. When you are young people might not take you seriously and it is hard to get recognition. But in politics, whether you are 16 or 80 your voice can be heard and have an impact.
I encourage you to put yourself out there and make a difference in this political campaign.
Learn how you can make an impact by identifying supporters, registering voters, and speaking out about the issues that matter to you.
