Voter Contact Every Weekend

290 S 1st Ave, Yuma, 85364
     It's Get Out The Vote time! November will be here before we know it, but there's so much to do before election day! The most effective way to win an election is to go talk to voters. Canvassing your neighborhood and making phone calls or texting are how we build our coalition of Democratic voters in Yuma County. If we do our part to turn out voters in Yuma County, we help flip the state BLUE!
     Canvasses will be launched every weekend from now through Election Day, November 3rd, please stop by for your list of FRIENDLY voters to go talk to about all of our Democrats running up and down the ballot.
RSVP to Canvass Saturdays
