Minnesota Volunteers

Sister District Minnesota

Entire state, primarily Twin Cities metro and surrounding communities

About our team

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.

Upcoming Events

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.
