Swing Left Inland Valley Voter Registration Defense Canvass for TJ Cox
June 29 2019 @ 9:30 am - 2:00 pmFree
Join me and other Swing Left volunteers for a canvass! We will be talking to people at their front door. Our goal is simple: restore American democracy by defeating Trump and his agenda while laying the groundwork for a decade of progress.
Don’t worry if you’ve never done this before, we’ll train you in everything you need to know and you will be paired with an experienced canvasser. It’s actually really fun once you get going. People appreciate your interest in them and Bakersfield folks are very warm and welcoming!
This canvass after the first presidential debates marks the informal start of a critical time period – this summer until next summer that leads up to the Democratic National Convention when we will need to have built the infrastructure for the 2020 general election campaigns.
It may seem a long way off but hundreds of thousands of voters in Super States and elsewhere need to be registered, have their registrations updated and corrected to get ready for the general election. Democrat TJ Cox unseated a Republican in 2018 by less than 1000 votes. It was one of the closest races in the country. Registering more voters in Bakersfield is one way to help get TJ Cox re-elected. Be part of it from beginning right through to the end. It starts NOW! It starts with YOU and me and thousands of us across the country.
Swing Left Inland Valley is based in the city of Claremont, CA, the Eastern most city in Los Angeles County. For those of you who are from the Claremont area we will carpool. Contact Sharon for carpooling by email, [email protected] It’s really fun being ON THE ROAD with like minded folks! Bakersfield is not too far or too hot to do the work of taking back our country.
If you are closer to Bakersfield all the better. Join us. Never done this before? No worries. We train and pair you with someone who is experienced. Spanish speakers are a plus but not a pre-requisite. Remember that our ultimate destination is to take back our Democracy.
When you RSVP here, please include a valid email address and a valid phone number so we can provide updates and contact you during the canvass. Feel free to reach out and ask questions. We’re happy to answer and are delighted to have you be part of our team.
Talking to voters face to face is one of the single most important ways you can make sure we win.
