Get Out the Vote Survival Packs!

Getting Out the Vote is hard work and in order to energize our volunteers, we have developed a pair of “GOTV Survival Packs” to help with the GOTV initiatives this fall! If you don’t have time to volunteer but would like some nice swag, please donate to fund important GOTV efforts throughout Germany: 

     - Facebook ads have been HUGELY successful, and we want to do a lot more through October.
     - Phone banking all our members costs money, and lots and lots of volunteer hours.
     - All members without a phone number (1000+) will be mailed to make sure they are up to date on this year's General Election (Deutsche Post is reliable, albeit expensive!)

Donate to Democrats Abroad Germany, receive one of the packs below, and help DAG with these critical priorities through Nov 8th! Anyone interested in volunteering, please contact our “Membership and Volunteer Coordinator” via [email protected]

Please choose one of the following “GOTV Survival Packs”, fill in the Google “order form” here, and make the suggested donation to The‎ DA Germany account:
