Numbers, North Carolina, and New Volunteers

Sun Feb 20 @ 5 pm ET

Make Sure Every NH Vote Counts

New Hampshire will re-elect Democratic Representative Chris Pappas and Senator Maggie Hassan only if citizens can vote safely and securely.

It’s important to remember that local election officials play a major role in election administration, even deciding whether or not votes are counted. The March 8 elections will determine both town Moderators and Supervisors of the Checklist. These positions are responsible for election oversight. Right-wing activists are running for these seats.

Help ensure these elections -- and future ones -- proceed fairly. Learn how to answer voter questions on the NH Voter Protection hotline.

Tuesdays @ 6 - 7 pm ET

Thursdays @ 11:45 am - 12:30 pm ET



Where Do We Go Now?

Daily at many times

These shifts always include training for new phonebankers

Google Docs for Activists

The online Google Docs tool has its challenges, but it is an ideal tool for getting activists on the same page. The challenge is this: Everyone needs to find the right document! The next two weeks of training will give you great ways to save me, minimize confusion, and simplify your activist life!

Attend the February 12 training and get answers to these questions about Google Docs:

  • What is a Google Doc?
  • How do I handle Google Docs in my email?
  • How do I find Google Docs using Google Drive (part 1)?

This course introduces the basics of Google Docs. If you can, please check beforehand to see if you have a Google account.
