Volunteer for Phone Banks for Voter Registration
Feel the need to take action around the upcoming elections? Our partners at the Massachusetts Voter Table are building on their experience using phone banks to contact people to fill out Census forms, and will be operating phone banks to encourage underrepresented groups to register to vote and to explain how to vote by mail. Later on, phone banks will encourage people to return their mail ballot applications and then their actual ballots.
So far, voting phone banks are scheduled for:
- July 15: 11-1 and 5-7
- July 16: 11-1 and 5-7
- July 17: 11-1
- July 18: 11-1 and 1-3
You can sign up to volunteer here. You’ll need a computer and a phone; training and a script are provided. Please note you need to sign up for each day you would like to phone bank.
The voter outreach is being combined with the 2020 Census count outreach through the end of July. Residents of the lowest self-response communities are being called to ask them to fill out the 2020 Census and to remind them to register to vote. MassCounts is conducting phone banks through the end of July Tuesdays 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Wednesdays 5-7 p.m., Thursdays 5-7 p.m., and Saturdays 1-3 p.m. You can sign up to work on both the Census and voter outreach.
