URGENT: we need poll greeters, canvassers & more!

Message to women: Vote!

We’re in the homestretch and we still have way too many voters who need to vote if we’re going to elect our strong Democratic candidates running for National and State offices! Early Voting is now open until November 1st from 7 am to 7 pm every day. We need your help to get our Democratic voters to the polls or get them to send in their Vote By Mail ballot.

Many of you are signed up to do some poll greeter / watching or are doing canvassing, literature drops, phone banking, texting or other activities. But, to prevail here in Florida, all of us need to do even more! Now is the time to get out of your comfort zone and take on at least one more activity.

We urgently need poll greeters throughout the Early Voting period, as well as on Election Day, Tuesday November 3rd. You will hold signs for our Democratic candidates and distribute voting information that we will provide. You must remain 150 feet from the entrance of the building. You may want to bring a chair and any snacks or refreshments that you will need. Please commit to your preferred 3 hour shifts, dates and polling locations by registering here.

Join Biden’s Team Florida to canvass Port Charlotte to get out the vote! With your help, we can flip Florida blue and elect Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and Democrats up and down the ballot in 2020 . All canvassers will be required to wear a mask, sign a health and safety consent form, and remain socially distant while canvassing. Sign up here for 2 hour sessions which head out from our headquarters at 3596 Tamiami Trail in Port Charlotte, FL 33952 every day until Election Day!

You must attend a 1 hour online training session BEFORE you sign-up for your first shift, otherwise we will not be able to send you out the doors. All canvass trainings are virtual and we will NOT be offering any in-person trainings at this time. Sign up for this training here .

The Biden campaign also needs volunteers who are willing to conduct in-person ballot cure assistance if you’re willing and able to knock on the doors of Florida voters who need in-person help “curing” their ballots so their ballots can be counted. Training is available!   Sign-up here or contact Mitch Hoke at mitchhoke@gmail.com or by phone at (239) 292-1336. 

All efforts are made so that volunteers and voters will be able to conduct the process without putting themselves or others at COVID risk.  For the limited in-person connections needed, volunteers are required to wear PPE. Campaign staff will offer masks, gloves and face shields at the Biden Community Victory Center which is co-located at our Charlotte County Democrats headquarters at 3596 Tamiami Trail in Port Charlotte, FL 33952. 

Volunteer training includes guidance on how to maintain social distancing and follow proper safety protocols. If you go through the remote training and determine that, even with these precautions, you are unable to perform in-person curing, we absolutely understand.  It’s better to be trained and not needed than to be needed and not trained!

Thanks for considering these important volunteer opportunities.
