Election Volunteers

Please volunteer for the election.

Find a candidate you like and work the polls.

My goal in encouraging this is to:

a) Celebrate the democracy that developed over the course of American history.
b) Have you realize that a few committed volunteers can have a real impact, particularly at the local level.
c) Familiarize you with the machinery of voting.
d) Show you the voters; we'll discuss this when we get to Jacksonian democracy: Is it a good idea to let everyone vote?
e) Provide you with a fun opportunity - the nuts and bolts stuff of working the polls isn't fun by itself, but you will develop a camaraderie with your coworkers.

You may earn one AP point per three hours on the campaign trail. The maximum is nine hours/three points.

  1. Although you feel the need to torture me, I'm glad to see you got the contact information.

    You left out Greg Marrow/Steve Landes though for the House of Delegates.

    I couldn't find the address to his office on his House of Delegates profile.

    ...and they better stay in that order!
