Become a Neighborhood Leader!
The Jackson County Democrats’ Neighborhood Leader Program is creating a progressive grassroots Get Out the Vote network, one neighbor at a time. This all volunteer effort is dedicated to increasing progressive voter turnout in 2018 and beyond. We know we can change the direction of our democracy through this important grass roots effort.
Join us on Wednesday, April 4, 2018, 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at Pony Espresso, 175 Lithia Way, Ashland. Learn how to effectively get out the vote.
The program is simple. The whole idea is to get as many progressive voters as possible to fill out and send in their ballots for each election.
• Talk to progressives in your neighborhood. You will be provided with a list of about 35 homes right around your house. On average, this would account for about 50 voters.
• Knock on the doors of your neighbors during our Get Out the Vote effort. Canvass based upon your schedule, when it makes sense to you and to your neighbors.
• Develop a relationship with your progressive neighbors. Thank them for voting in the past. Ask them to vote in the upcoming 2018 elections.
Voting Matters! Help us create a progressive blue waive by helping to get out the progressive vote. Speaking face-to-face with your fellow voters is a time-honored and proven way to win elections. Even in our world, which is so influenced by social media and other new technologies, no other method comes close to effectiveness in getting out the vote.
For example, Deschutes County had a 57.5% progressive voter turnout in neighborhoods that had a Neighborhood Leader in a 2017 special election. The overall turnout for Democrats in that election was 28.5%. For the February 2018 Measure 101 election we increased voter turnout in our neighborhoods by 34 points! We need to grow the army to win. Join us. Bring a friend.
This method works!!
