Indivisible is organizing a GOTV campaign for Doug Jones in Alabama. They’ve set up infrastructure that let’s you participate from anywhere in the country. Let’s do it.
Volunteers can use an online system to contact Alabama voters by text. You don’t need to use your own phone.
We can start by signing up at this link: http://www.indivisible.org/gotv-alabama/.
There are training sessions this evening on using their web interface, but it looks pretty straightforward. You volunteer for time blocks over the next week or so.
I can tell you from experience that this kind of low-dollar, high-touch GOTV effort was key to John McCain’s comeback in the 2008 Republican primaries. It works. I did it.
As new posts show up on the blog this one will roll down the page, out of sight and out of mind. I’d like for us to track our efforts. It helps everyone remain focused. So, I’m going to cross-post this in the Off Topic forum, where we can ask questions and post progress. If you have any trouble accessing the forum, just post a comment here or email me and I’ll address it.
If you’ve been feeling helpless and frustrated, here’s a chance to channel those negative emotions into action that can make a difference.
