Know Your Neighbors
Get acquainted with the people in your precinct. Ensure you know homebound citizens or military personnel who need to vote by mail. Welcome all newcomers with a personal visit or note, and if they are Democrats, inform them how they can register to vote. Help young people who will turn 18 before Election Day to register to vote.
Know Your Precinct
Obtain information about your precinct from your state party or legislative district organization. Study a map of the area, and know the boundaries, number of houses, apartments, churches, businesses, and schools, and the location of your polling place. Understand the economic makeup, number of union members, veterans, students of voting age, total Democratic population, ethnicities represented, and voting history of your precinct.
Know Local Issues
Read your local paper to learn about major concerns in your county, district, and precinct. Understand the hot-button issues in your community and how people in your precinct feel about them. Learn about important state issues and familiarize yourself with Democratic Party values and talking points.
