When Voting Isn’t Enough – here’ what to do

Across the country, there are campaigns that are hurting for volunteers. There are millions of households that haven’t received a campaign call, millions of homes that haven’t been visited, and millions of dollars that haven’t been donated.

Oh, I hear the excuses. You can drop ’em faster than a hanging chad. You’ve been meaning to get around to volunteering… when? After the election? Well, you work long hours. Make campaign calls from home! (see the GOP’s Phone From Home Program). You feel like canvassing is obnoxious (but heavy taxation isn’t?). Stuff envelopes instead! You don’t like your local candidate? Volunteer in another district, or send your money to a candidate you DO care about. You don’t know how to get started? Just click this link, and select the area you live in to find the campaign headquarters nearest you.

Whether you can pick up the phone or your checkbook, hand out a brochure or a yard sign, Uncle Sam is counting on you to volunteer. And who knows—if you help make the difference, maybe this January you, and your family, will finally get to enjoy the evening news.
