we are the
MARGIN OF VICTORY
People-powered, people-funded...this is what (the new) democracy looks like!
Get Out The Vote - San Diego's text banking campaign is turning out the vote for these progressive candidates:
- GENEVIEVE JONES-WRIGHT for District Attorney
- DAVE MYERS for Sheriff
- MATT STRABONE for County Clerk / Recorder
(these races are all decided in the upcoming June 5th election!)
The polls show that these races are close, but the majority of voters haven't decided. This makes it all the more important that we turn out each and every registered Democrat.
Over the next two weeks, we're mobilizing 3,000 supporters to each send 50 text messages to Democratic voters in San Diego County. Together we'll reach 150,000+ voters! This is more than the margin of victory in previous elections. We can be difference between victory and defeat!
Grassroots Funding: In order to have an impact, we need to scale fast. This effort is 100% grassroots funded, so we're asking each volunteer to chip in $3 to cover the cost of messaging 50 voters.
If you can chip in a bit more, that would be awesome!
- $6 connects to 100 voters,
- $9 connects to 150 voters
- $18 connects to 300 voters ...you get the idea.
People-powered/funded democracy is how progressive candidates like Genevieve, Dave, and Matt are going to have the autonomy to tackle powerful special interests. Click here to donate $3 to get started.
Textbanking: We're using CallHub to send texts. It's easy to use...you just create an account online, then log-in and click SEND, SEND, SEND...to the voters that have been assigned to your "agent" account.
If/when you get responses, you can chat back via the online interface. The whole system uses local numbers; so San Diego County voters will get messages from local numbers, even if you are helping us out from a different area.
Register with CallHub: You'll need to provide your email and create a username (once you do that you'll get an account validation message sent to your email to confirm your email address. Click on that link and it will prompt you to create a password. Once you have an account name and password, you'll be able to log into the system.
Sending Messages: Once you are logged in, click on "Texting" at the top of the page to see the "campaign" to which you have been assigned.
