This 23-day challenge is for you if you want to help progressive candidates in Oregon and Washington GET ELECTED this November! Your time and effort have the biggest impact in the weeks right before the election. If you want to do something but aren't sure where to start OR you want to up your game, this is your roadmap! On Election Day, feel the pride of knowing you stepped up!
What is the Election Sprint Challenge?
When you sign up, you’ll immediately receive more information including program guidelines, event links, and a supply list (think: poster board + a marker to make a sign!)
Starting October 15, you’ll receive a daily get-out-the-vote assignment via email. We’ve pulled together a collection of effective GOTV activities. We’ll give you plenty of options that fit with different schedules and comfort levels.
We’re a fun, active team! As an Election Sprint Challenge member, you’ll be invited to special, in-person events in Portland, OR, to meet each other (and us!), get fired up, and be recognized for your hard work.
Signups will remain open till 11/5/18
How much time will this take?
That’s up to you. The stakes have never been higher for our democracy, and this is our last, best chance to have an impact on the Midterm Election. Whatever you’re doing now, challenge yourself to take the next step! We’ll show you how. Sign up now, even if you’re not sure you can do all the assignments.
Who is the Midterm Squad?
We’re a group of volunteers that grew out of a collaboration between two Portland, OR-based grassroots community groups, Nasty Women Get Shit Done (creators of the In Our America flag signs you see all over town) and Persisters PDX, a women’s political engagement and support group.
This project is 100% grassroots volunteer-powered. Not paid for by a PAC, candidate, or campaign. We will not share your contact information. We will only contact you about the Election Sprint Challenge.
