Join Us to Phone Bank in Key States KY, OH, VA, MS, PA, NJ

We are less than two weeks away from the November 7 elections, and as an American abroad you can make a real difference! These elections are crucial for the future of our country and our democracy, Republican rule in these states is unacceptable.

We have partnered with our Sister Democratic Parties in six key states: Kentucky, Ohio, Mississippi, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Virginia. They have asked for our support to reach Democratic voters and urge them to vote.

The most effective way to do this is by phone banking. You can make calls from anywhere in the world as long as you have an internet connection and a headset. You don’t need to be a voter in the state you call.

To sign up for a phone bank, please click the links below. You will find phone banks for all six states and training sessions if you are new to phone banking.

Make calls in Mississippi [here

Make calls in Ohio [here

Make calls in Virginia [here

Make calls in Pennsylvania [here

Make calls in New Jersey [here] Training for NJ [here]

You can make calls anytime until election day, but the sooner you start, the more impact you will have.

Don’t worry if you have never made calls to voters before. You will receive all the training and guidance you need from the state organizers. They will teach you how to use a dialer and how to talk to voters. Once you complete a training session, you can make calls whenever it suits your schedule.


  • When you register to call with the DNC, you will be asked to submit a US phone number. This number will simply be used for things like reminders, recruitment outreach, etc.
  • If you do not have a US phone number, the phone number they use does not need to be a legitimate phone number! For example, 000-000-0000 would work, so on and so forth, with the caveat that it must be a unique number that is not in use by another caller.
  • For the DNC's security purposes, the dialer may block folks with international IP addresses, so we do recommend using a VPN if possible.


If you are not able to phone bank due to your time zone or other reasons, please forward this email to someone who might be interested.
