Canvassing: VoterID and Voter pledge in New Paltz [driving from/returning to Upper West Side]
Start: Sunday, June 10, 2018•10:00 AM
End: Sunday, June 10, 2018• 7:15 PM
We're knocking on doors of Democrats in New Paltz who did not vote in the 2014 midterms to get them out to vote in this crucial 2018 midterm and getting them to sign "pledge to vote" postcards. At the same time we're doing voter identification so when the election approaches the GOTV effort will be more efficient - targeting as many voters likely to vote Democratic.
It's a fun and productive day with beautiful scenery. Some of us drive by car and others will take the bus. We depart at 10am from the Upper West Side and return about 7pm - trip is just under 2 hours each way.
Studies show that getting voters to “commit” in advance can meaningfully increase turnout, so this summer Swing Left volunteers across the country will be going out into their target Swing Districts to talk to voters, identify supporters and ask them to commit to vote in 2018.
If you have never canvassed before, this is an easy way to get started!
Swing Left will provide materials and online trainings so you have everything you need to know to have a great time and make a meaningful impact.
