GOTV Election Phone Bank - Halloween Edition

October 31, 2020 @ 12:00 pm

It's Halloween and we're hitting the phones in our spooky attire! 

Join us for some GOTV phone banking Halloween style.  Costumes are welcome (but not required) and you might even win a prize!  

With only TWO more days until Election Day, we need your help!

In this important election, it is vital that we not only cast our ballots, but look out for our friends and neighbors to help them through the voting process as well.

Whether they were previously ineligible to vote because of a conviction, unsure of their eligibility, or they simply feel disconnected and excluded from the process, formerly incarcerated people often find themselves disenfranchised as voters in West Virginia.

The WV Family of Convicted People seeks to identify, support and lift the voices of people who have been directly affected by our brutal system of mass incarceration so that they can lead the movement to dismantle it. We are proud to team up with them to make sure that formerly incarcerated West Virginians have their voices heard in this election.

Volunteer from home and help fellow West Virginians who are formerly incarcerated navigate the voting process in the 2020 General Election. 
-All experience levels are welcome! We will teach you the process and provide the training and materials needed to get on the phone and talk to voters - all you need is an internet connection and a phone to get started!
-Once you're trained you can make calls with other volunteers OR make phone calls on your own anytime.
-If you can't join us for the whole time, that's ok! Come make calls for as long as you can.

Help us make sure that all West Virginians can cast their ballot!
