NH: December 7 Special Election
Come to Derry, NH, and build a community of Democratic voters
The last special election of the year in NH is on December 7. You have through this Tuesday to enlist New Hampshire’s Democratic voters to turn out.
Every day until Tuesday, volunteers are driving 45 minutes to Londonderry, NH. From there, they head to nearby Derry to ask Democratic voters to cast their ballots for Mary Eisner.
Swing Blue Alliance is organizing carpooling, morning and afternoon shifts, and great company. The biggest benefit is a chance to build a larger community of voters that will be primed to re-elect Senator Maggie Hassan and Congressman Chris Pappas in 2022.
You can be the catalyst that turns small victories into big ones. If you want a Democratic Congress in 2022, join door-to-door canvassing and phone banks for Mary Eisner.
The Freedom to Vote Act may not be on the Senate calendar yet, but it's still high on the list of goals for Democratic Senators. While some legislators are dragging their feet, jockeying for power, most understand the value of the Freedom to Vote Act's crucial significance in protecting our Democracy.
You can help persuade Senators how essential voter protection is to their constituents. Just invite Dems to ask their Senators: Are you ready to rally your colleagues and pass the Freedom to Vote Act?
The link below lists Freedom to Vote Act phone banks that run throughout the week and will continue nonstop throughout the holidays. (Yes, that’s how important this is!)
Do you ever wonder what goes on at Swing Blue Alliance “behind the curtain?” SBA activists are working on the website, communications, strategy, branding, research, and plans for events.
All these volunteers use Slack as a way to share information and stay up to date. Slack also gives people a great way to communicate, both with individuals and with everybody working on the same team.
With your own sign-in, you can cruise topic-specific channels, search for info, ask questions, and contact other volunteers directly ... all online, without the need to manage individual emails, texts, and calls.
Don’t be hesitant! It’s easy! Come to the next Slack training, and Sonali Tambe will walk you through the easiest ways to take advantage of Slack. She’ll answer your questions and help you get what you want out of Slack.
Marianna Anagnostou, now a Tufts sophomore, started her summer internship with Swing Blue Alliance last June. Now, she is still involved, well into her fall internship, and looking forward to the end of the school term so she can spend more time volunteering.
Marianna describes her internship as “a great opportunity to gain experience.” She has worked on social media, the SBA website, budgeting reports, and even a style guide that includes writing and graphics standards for the entire SBA organization.
