Save the voting machines - March 8 election

Help protect voting machines in NH!

The Closest You Can Get to Turning the Country Blue

New Hampshire is (geographically) the nearest opportunity to affect the 2022 elections. That’s why it makes sense for you to attend these NH-focused events.

Win Blue NH Monthly Meeting

Come meet NH Dems Coordinated Campaign head honcho Andrea Nemecek. As CC Director, Andrea oversees all field work for Sen. Maggie Hassan and coordinates every other race down the ballot. Andrea helped flip AZ in '18 and '20... and she plans to do the same in NH.

You'll also hear from Jeff Taylor about gerrymandering. As the Open Democracy Board Member and former campaign manager for Mayor Joyce Craig in Manchester, NH, Jeff knows NH.

This is your chance to learn about NH plans and strategy and ask questions!

Mon, Mar 7 @ 7 pm ET

Protect the 2022 Election

Stop NH towns from doing away with voting machines while helping get out the vote for local candidates and town election officials. The Town Meeting Member elections are on March 8, so this is your last chance to help.

Sat, Mar 5 @ 1 - 3 pm ET

Recruiting With Your Ears

Tue, Mar 8 @ 12 pm ET

(space is limited)

 

Letter and Postcard Update

Protect the Vote in Battleground States

Tue, Mar 8 @ 8 pm ET

Activist Training

Being an activist means juggling your time, communications, and information overload. It is WAY easier to do this when you use apps in the Google Suite: Gmail, Google Drive, Google Docs, and Google Sheets.

All these tools are easy to use and available without any downloads. All you need is a Google account (which you probably have if you use Gmail).

Attend the March 5 training, Google Docs: Switching from Word, and learn how to:

  • Move between Google Docs and Microsoft Word
  • Format Google Docs files 
  • Share Google Docs files
  • Edit Google Docs files more easily

This is an intermediate course.

Sat, Mar 5 @ 11 am ET

Attend the March 12 training, Google Sheets, the Google version of Excel. Learn how to:

  • Set up a spreadsheet to track information
  • Upload information to Google sheets
  • Search, sort, and filter
  • Work with multiple tabs

This is a beginner course on Google Sheets.

Sat, Mar 12 @ 11 am ET

Both sessions are co-hosted by Indivisible Acton Area, Swing Blue Alliance, and Indivisible Mass Coalition in collaboration with volunteers at the MAssachusetts Grassroots Information Center, a Slack workspace for exchanging information, encouraging connections among groups, and building activist momentum across the state. Join the News-MAGIC Slack space today.
