Texas Special Election Phonebank: Get out the Vote for Democrats
April 26 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm PDT
An event every week that begins at 2:00 pm on Monday, repeating until April 26, 2021
We are making phone calls to mobilize voters for a Special Election that will be held in Texas’ 6th Congressional District on May 1 to fill the seat of Republican Rep. Ron Wright, who died in February of COVID-19.
This will be a jungle primary with over a dozen candidates from all parties on the ballot. If no candidate receives over 50% of the vote, there will be a runoff among the top 2 candidates.
Early voting starts on April 19. Our first round of phone calls will let people know about the election and urge them to vote early.

IF YOU HAVE NOT ALREADY PARTICIPATED IN A VIRTUAL PHONE BANK WITH FLIP THE WEST IN 2020, PLEASE READ BELOW:
You will join others on Zoom and go to a break out room either to get training or to start making calls. Technical support is available. Throughout, you’re invited to meet your fellow phone bankers, share success stories, and give us feedback.
We are using the automated dialer Callhub, which requires that you have a PC or MAC with audio functionality. It dials numbers for you through your computer; the voter sees a number with a local area code (not your phone number). Info on using CallHub is in our Confirmation email.
