It's going to take every volunteer we have putting in 100% on election day to turn out the vote for Jill Stein and the Green Party.
Starting at 5:00am on Election Day, our campaign office at 2201 W. North Ave., Chicago, IL will be up and running. We need volunteers filling the following roles:
- Electioneers stationed outside polling places with our ballot number cards and campaign literature. This is the most critical role! Many American voters make up their minds in the voting booth, and can be persuaded by a last-minute handbill or flyer. We have a list of Chicago's highest-traffic polling places (you can see them on the map here), and we want volunteers stationed at as many of them as possible, for as many hours as possible, this Election Day.
- Drivers to help get electioneers to their polling places, and to provide rides for voters with mobility issues. If you have a car and you're willing to donate a day of driving, it's an enormous help to our efforts!
- Office staff stuffing packets for electioneers and making phone calls to confirmed Green Party voters to make sure they've made it to the polls.
Coming by for even just fifteen minutes or half an hour makes a difference. Donating a half-day or a full day makes a huge difference! We'll have coffee and pastries for the morning shift, and sandwiches (including vegetarian) in the afternoon. At 7:00pm, we'll close down our GotV efforts and shift to our Election Night party.
Can't make it into the campaign office on Election Day? We can still use your help as a remote phonebanker making GotV calls to our confirmed voters. These aren't persuasion calls -- everyone on the list has already indicated that they're voting Green; we just want to make sure they've cast their ballots. Sign up for remote phonebanking on our website and we'll email you the needed numbers and call script.
With everyone's help, we're poised to make history on Tuesday, Nov. 8th. Be a part of the movement -- volunteer to Get out the Vote!
