Swing Left Door-Knocking Event in Cranford, New Jersey NJ-07
Start: Sunday, April 29, 2018•12:15 PM
End: Sunday, April 29, 2018• 4:00 PM
Join me and other Swing Left volunteers as we go out to talk to voters in Cranford, part of the Swing District, NJ-07.
Swing Left is a national grassroots network that helps people take action in their closest Congressional Swing District. The goal is simple: Swing the House in the 2018 midterm elections and put a check on the Trump agenda.
For this canvass, we will be focusing on registered Democrats who tend not to vote in midterm elections. We will have that information utilizing voter data through a partnership with Working Families Party. You will be using a web tool to ask supporters to a) sign the commit-to-vote pledge on your phone and b) verify that their voter registration is up-to-date. If you come across a Republican or Undecided voter, you'll ask them to share their top issues so that we can better understand our districts and better tailor our messaging.
We will provide materials and online training so you will have everything you need to have a great time and make a meaningful impact. We will be canvassing in pairs, so you’ll never be left to figure things out by yourself.
Re Location: You have the option of meeting us at New York Penn Station at 10:30 am (to catch the 11:07 am NJ Transit train) to ride out to Cranford together, or you can meet us at the Cranford Train Station at 12:15 pm.
If you want to ride the train together from NYC, we’ll be meeting on the sidewalk on the NW corner of 31st Street and 7th Avenue at 10:30 am.
The exact meeting location at the Cranford Train Station will be forthcoming.
Re Time: We will all gather at the Cranford NJ Transit Train Station at 12:15 pm. This will give us a chance to distribute materials, break into pairs, carve up the turf, and go over any questions before we start knocking on doors at 1:00 pm. We’ll finish door knocking at 4 pm.
