Thanks for volunteering to phone bank our members in AZ, TX, PA, and IL.
STEP 1 FOR ALL PHONE BANK VOLUNTEERS: To protect our members' privacy, you must complete a Confidentiality Agreement before you start calling. Please download it, sign it, and upload it here.
STEP 2: Please join our wechat group for phone bank volunteers. Add Elizabeth (wechat ID elizaj) and she will connect you.
STEP 3: Familiarize yourself with the message. Overview of our message:
- Election Alerts! The voters on our lists need to be aware of the upcoming deadlines for voter registration, ballot requests and ballot return.
- Backup Plan! We also want to tell them about the FWAB (Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot) for anyone who is afraid they will not make these deadlines.
- Reconnect! A lot of people haven't heard from DA China at all since joining. We want to welcome them and invite them to our WeChat groups.
