Can’t leave the house to Get out the Vote (GOTV)? Do it from home with Democracy for America!


GOTV in your jammies!

I’m going to say right off the bat that I am, in general, against phonebanking from home. People that phonebank with others are more productive. It creates a sense of accountability AND a sense of camaraderie that you simply can’t get doing it alone.

That said, not everyone can get out of the house to phone bank or knock doors even though they want to help. Well, thanks to Democracy for America, you CAN help, even if you can’t leave the house. They are making calls around the country to support the various progressive Democratic candidates that they have endorsed and need help getting out the vote for these fine candidates.

Simply click HERE to get started. Here are the instructions you will find there:

Call Out The Vote

Sign up today to make calls to support progressive candidates from the convenience of your own home. It’s fun, easy and the most effective way to win in November.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Sign up to make calls by checking the box for whichever shift or shifts work for you.
  2. We’ll email you with all the information you need on the day of your call shift, including an invitation to join us for a brief training call at the start of your shift.
  3. We’ll give you a call to confirm the time you’ve signed up for and answer any questions you may have.
  4. Right before your shift begins, we’ll host a brief training call where we’ll go over the call script and answer any questions.
  5. Start making calls!

So, even if you can’t get out to GOTV locally, you can still make an impact from your own home. You could even do it in your jammies!
