NY19 Canvass in Hyde Park / Rhinebeck for Delgado on Oct 7
Start: October 07, 2018• 9:45 AM
End: October 07, 2018• 7:00 PM
Join Upper West Side MoveOn/Indivisible and other Swing Left volunteers to start talking to voters in this key Swing District, NY19 in Hyde Park and neighboring Rhinebeck and Red Hook.
We'll be canvassing for the Democratic candidate, Antonio Delgado using VAN walking lists of Democrats who are infrequent voters to identify Delgado supporters, urge them to fill out "Pledge to Vote" cards and possibly volunteer. For the undecideds we'll share our knowledge and enthusiasm for Delgado and the importance of the Democrats winning back the House to make the one party GOP government accountable. This all makes the last week of GOTV [get out the vote] much more efficient.
We meet on the upper west side of Manhattan at 10am, pair up and set off driving up to Delgado's Hyde Park campaign office for training and getting our turfs then head out to canvass for several hours in scenic Hudson Valley. After canvassing, those who want will have an early dinner together in a Hyde Park restaurant/cafe before heading home. We drive back getting home to NYC around 7-7:45pm.
You will need to chip in $18 - 28 [depends on how many cars need to be rented] towards car rental and gas unless you can bring your car and drive it, in which case you'll get reimbursed for gas.
If you have never canvassed before, this is an easy way to get started!
