In order to provide the margin of victory in November, we need to increase voter participation from abroad. Only 7% of US citizens abroad cast ballots in 2016 — we must do everything possible to turn out more of the 3+ million US voters from around the globe in 2020!
What is it?
Dialing for Democracy is a fundraising call-a-thon, in which our outstanding phonebankers make as many calls as they can from 9:00am to 9:00pm CEST on Flag Day, June 14 (we will reach thousands of overseas voters!). DA and callers will work together to secure sponsors who will push us to reach our calling goals and generously provide the critical funds to keep our voter outreach projects going strong through November!
From 7:30pm to 9:30pm, we will also be live on Facebook to track our progress and hear from our callers. It will be fun, it will be informative, and it will be an opportunity to connect with fellow DA members as we all encourage our callers in the final stretch.
How do we do this?
It's easy! Sign up today to make calls via this Google form and let us know how many calls you will make during the call-a-thon. You'll then receive information to pass along to your friends and family to secure pledges. You may ask your sponsors for whatever amount feels comfortable — but please take this opportunity to stretch your goal! The more we raise, the more we have to get out the overseas vote and win in November!
Look at your friends and family members (even in the US!) and decide who you would like to ask to sponsor you. You can call them (always great!) or email them. You can post on social media, too. Let them know from the heart why you are spending your precious time "dialing for democracy". Then ask them to please support you — and democracy(!) — on Flag Day!
