Early Voting Volunteers

Please help us with the ACDP Early Voting Tent
We can’t promise you’ll have fun, but most people do!

As a volunteer you will:

  • Greet voters
  • Help them with any voting issues
  • Pass out information about our candidate, Josh Throneburg
  • Sign-up anyone who would like to volunteer with us
  • Have a good time getting to know other Democrats
  • We do need help setting up and taking down if you are willing and able to help with that.

We’ve gotten a lot of positive response about this from both appreciative voters and the volunteers. All you need to know will be provided at the tent. If you’ve wanted to help, but are unable to canvass or make phone calls, this is the job for you! No standing necessary. Sign up now and pick your time slot!
