Phonebanking is one of the best ways to increase voter turnout among Americans living abroad! Every Tuesday and Thursday until Election Day, we will be meeting in Leipzig to call eligible voters and make sure they know how to request and return their absentee ballots.
Phonebanking is easy and straightforward. All you will need is your computer – **not a tablet**, **not a smartphone** – and headphones, if you have a set. To access the Internet, you must either have an eduroam account, or be able to plug an ethernet cable in to your laptop. We have several ethernet cables available, so please bring a converter if your laptop needs one.
No prior experience is required, and newcomers are very welcome!
