Last Push Volunteer Opportunities

Lit Drops

Lit drops give volunteers a list of doors and election-related flyers or sticky notes to drop off at each targeted address. The coordinated Virginia Victory campaign is also encouraging safe, masked, socially distant conversations with voters; check its Charlottesville canvass signup page for more information.

Join Dr. Webb’s campaign for socially distant literature drops in Charlottesville, Albemarle County, and Crozet! Three-hour shifts launch at 9 a.m, noon, and 3 p.m. every day from Saturday, Oct. 31, through Election Day. More info here.

The coordinated Biden/Harris/Warner/Webb campaign will be running Charlottesville canvasses/lit drops from Oct. 31-Nov. 3, with shifts launching at 9 a.m., noon, and 3 p.m. If you sign up for any of these shifts, you’ll need to block off some time the night of Friday, Oct. 30, for mandatory virtual safety training as well.

Call Voters

Want to help Dr. Cameron Webb? Sign up for Oct. 31-Nov. 3 GOTV phone banks! Shifts kick off at 9 a.m., noon, 3 p.m., and 6 p.m. Got time to dial this week, too? Sign up for a weekday virtual phonebank.

Want to help Joe Biden, Mark Warner, and Dems in our area? Sign up for this week’s slate of phone banking. The campaign tells us that each shift has a goal of 60 calls or 40 minutes — whichever goal you reach first! And with the election just a week away, sign up for Get Out the Vote Phonebanks Oct. 31-Nov. 3.

Want to help campaigns in battleground states? Virginia Victory’s also running a national distributed phonebank, letting you call voters in swing states via your computer. You can call every afternoon and evening, anytime from 10 a.m.-11:30 p.m. (for you night owls), by signing up here.

Text Voters

Dr. Webb’s campaign invites you to send texts during GOTV, Oct. 31-Nov. 3!

From now through Election Day, you can also up for daily text banks and training for Joe Biden, Mark Warner, and Dr. Webb and his fellow House candidates. After a quick initial training session, you can text securely and privately from your computer, tablet, or smartphone during various daily two-hour shifts.

Volunteers Needed – Targeted Lit Drops

The Webb campaign is looking for Albemarle Dem volunteer leaders to lead targeted lit drops in Albemarle County — especially but not exclusively in the White Hall District, for Crozet-area lit drops — from now through Nov. 3.

We need Lit Drop Launch Leaders for Oct. 24-25, and Oct. 31 through Nov. 3.

The launches will occur every three hours from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m (day ends at 9 p.m.). It would be great if, for those last four days, we had people who would take a minimum six-hour shift. Anyone able to do 12 hours is an absolute bonus!

We also need a staging location director to manage workflows during GOTV weekend – or two people working together could also work – this is for both Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. These lit drops will be in Albemarle County.

Where?: (The previous Webb campaign office) 233 Hydraulic Ridge Road, Charlottesville 22901

You may be assigned anywhere in the County. with a minimum 6.5 hour on-site shift required on Nov. 3. If you are interested in helping with this important task, please contact Teddy Hamilton at

Can’t commit to a lengthy poll-watching shift? The Albemarle Dems need volunteers to help potential voters at the Dem tents at our 30 county precincts on Election Day, Nov. 3. We’re looking for folks who are willing to mask-up and take two-to-four hour shifts handing out sample ballots, answering voter questions, and possibly signing up interested volunteers and newsletter subscribers.
