There is so much at stake in this election. Four more years of Matt Bevin in the Governor’s Mansion would have ruinous results that will set our communities back an entire generation. But you know that, or you wouldn’t be considering volunteering as a canvasser. But what you may not know is what it’s going to take to ensure that Andy Beshear and the Democratic Ticket are elected on November 5. Well, let me tell you…a higher voter turnout! Knocking on doors and talking to potential voters is THE BEST way to activate those individuals and get them to the polls on Election Day. Additionally, the information collected in the process helps the campaigns make informed decisions about how to efficiently and effectively spend campaign resources.
This is our election to lose. And it will be close. The Republicans and their dark-money allies are spending millions of dollars on two objectives: rile up their base to get them to the polls AND discourage everyone else in hopes they will stay home. We can’t let that happen. If we wake up on November 6, facing four more years of a Bevin Administration, there is no question as to why. It will be because we didn’t do enough to engage and turn out the vote.
Please consider giving some of your time and becoming a canvasser! Election Day is just around the corner and there is still a great deal of ground to cover! You can SIGN UP HERE. Need some more information? On our Why Canvass? page, we’ll answer some of the questions you may have on the why and the how. Knocking on doors and talking to voters is not as scary as you think, we promise. Together, we can elect leaders like Andy Beshear who share our values of opportunity & equality and who will fight for good schools, higher wages, access to affordable healthcare and a state government that works to lift up every Kentucky family (not just the ones that voted for us).
