We fundraise, campaign and get out the vote. We host speakers and candidate forums, write postcards, make phone calls and connect with our neighbors. And in the process of electing Dems and making government more responsive and more representative, we have a lot of fun.
HELP GREET VOTERS AT THE POLLS! We are looking for folks to greet voters at the polls on Election Day, Nov. 2, 6 am to 7 pm. Shifts available at all 21 precincts. Sign up here. We also need help greeting voters at the Williamsburg Municipal Building on the two Saturdays of early voting, Oct. 23 and Oct. 30. Sign up here for Williamsburg early voting Saturdays.
Pick up yard signs for our candidates. We have signs for our statewide candidates (a combined sign for McAuliffe, Ayala, and Herring), for Del. Mullin and Dr. Downey, and for our two school board candidates, write-in Dan Lukich and Kim Hundley. Find it annoying when you see signs for the other team? Fight back with a yard sign of your own! You can pick up signs at our table at the JCC Rec Center early voting location, on Jen Tierney’s front porch (2824 Linden Lane) if you live in the 93rd House of Delegates, or MK Sizemore’s house (4704 Yarrow Court) if you live in the 96th. Remember, put signs on your property or on property where you’ve gotten permission. Signs on road rights-of-way and public property will be removed.
Join us Election Night at the Corner Pocket. The terrace will be open as well as inside. Join our candidates and listen to the returns.
Give some thought to joining NEIGHBORS UNITED FOR CHANGE. Organizing at the neighborhood level helps us recruit volunteers and communicate about important issues neighbor-to-neighbor and friend-to-friend. Want to organize an interest group you’re involved with, or a group of your friends? That works too. Or if you’re already a part of an existing neighborhood group, we’d love to work with you.
