EARLY VOTING STARTS TOMORROW!!!


It's finally here! All of the hard work we've been putting in for the last year and a half (or more!) is about to pay off, but not unless you, your family, your friends, your neighbors, your coworkers, everyone you know, votes! Encourage them all to vote straight Democratic--this is the most qualified slate of candidates we've had, and we must send a message to the world that we will not take any more hate or fear or corruption from the Republicans.

Polls are open this Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM.
Next Saturday they are open from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM.
Next Sunday they are open from 1:00 PM to 6:00 PM.
And the week of October 29th-November 2nd they are open from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM.

For questions about voting, including times and locations, please go to MyTexasVotes.com
PHONE BANK FROM HOME!

One of the most important responsibilities tasked to Harris County Democratic clubs is what's called the "Vote By Mail Ballot Chase."  This is a two-part process. The first part is to call Democratic seniors who received an application for a mail ballot, encouraging them to return it by October 27th. The second part is to contact everyone who received a mail ballot to make sure that they return it with the proper postage ASAP. These are EASY calls to make! But they don't make themselves.

We have great news--you can now make these calls from the comfort of your own home! There's no need to go to a specific phone bank held at a remote location. All you need is a computer with internet access and a phone.

To get started, click on this link: https://www.openvpb.com/vpb_bycode/BAE3D2G-790315

This will take you to the Open VPB (Virtual Phone Bank) website. Click on Get Started. You may be asked to log in with an ActionID. If you do not have one, you can follow the instructions on setting one up. Once you are logged in, you will see a screen with a voter's name and phone number, as well as the script you can read. As the voter answers your questions, record their responses using the drop-down menu for each one. When your call is complete, click on Save & Next Call to go to the next voter. If you are done calling for the day, you can click on Stop Making Calls.

Be sure to take some time to read over the script so that you are familiar with it, and make any tweaks you feel make the call more "comfortable." The important thing is that we reach as many people as possible to make sure they vote. 

This is probably the most important election of all of our lifetimes, and we can't afford for anyone to sit on the sidelines. Please try to make as many calls are you are able--every little bit helps!​
