Volunteers Needed to Get Our the Vote (GOTV) with We Count!

Remember that voting is your chance to use your right as a citizen to be involved in the democratic process.
We have an ambitious GOTV plan for the 2018 midterm election cycle and we need folks who want to help canvass between now and November. We’re also registering people to vote between now and October 9, 2018, (the deadline to register to vote for the November election) and would love volunteers to join us!
Georgia WAND is building power in communities affected by inequitable public spending, radiological contamination, and other forms of systemic violence. We need help sharing information so people can make informed decisions for positive change and hold their elected officials accountable  Please fill out our online volunteer form and indicate your interest in working voter registration and/or WeCount GOTV canvassing. Our WeCount! coordinator will reach out to you to schedule a voter registration and GOTV training.
Georgia WAND’s WeCount! civic engagement program needs your help to get people out to vote between now and the general elections on November 6th.
If you are interested in joining us, please send an email to WeCount! coordinator Jewel Howard at wecount@georgiawand.org.
