We formed our team early in Sister District's second election cycle in 2018. Although Minnesota itself had a busy ballot that year, we felt it important to be part of a national network of volunteer teams striving to build progressive power in state legislatures across the country. After two cycles of helping candidates get elected in Michigan then Virginia -- and seeing real policy change there as a result -- we're excited to be supporting candidates to help flip the Minnesota state Senate blue in 2020. We emphasize creating a sense of belonging and impactfulness when connecting volunteers to the electoral work we do for wonderful candidates in strategically selected districts.
Calling voters is our #1 remote tactic to increase voter turnout. By identifying voters, improving the campaigns' data, and recruiting local volunteers, we help our awesome, progressive state legislative candidates win close, strategically-valuable elections.
Every Sunday to mid-August, we'll be dialing for Dr. Aleta Borrud (MN SD26) to build her name recognition on the way to winning in the Rochester area. We'll start with orientation and training from 2-2:30 pm and call voters from 2:30-3:30.
Register at link below and add to your calendars. We'll send you more information in a reminder email the day before. You'll need a computer to access Zoom video and our phonebanking system, a phone to make calls, and pen and paper to track your dials.
