Announcing Teens Elect 2020!
Big announcement today: We're mobilizing youth to call and text voters across the country in the last 7 weeks before election day.
Here's how to participate:
STEP 1: THE WHY
Need some convincing on why working on an election or two is a worthwhile way to spend time this year?
STEP 2: THE TEAM
Let's make this fun. Pick a few friends and form a team and commit to calling and texting voters together! You can make it as casual or not-casual as you'd like (from just doing it at the same time to Zooming with mute on while you call voters)-- you just have to commit to calling for a certain amount of time per week (seriously no commitment is too small).
STEP 3: THE CANDIDATES
You and your team can pick the candidate(s) you want to phonebank for: from Joe Biden & Kamala Harris all the way to your local city council election. To make things simple, we've created a curated TR list of some extra-special House and Senate races for you to choose from if you'd like. Our list includes bios and, of course, easy links to sign up to volunteer.
STEP 4: CALLING & LOGGING
Then, you call! Every time your team makes calls, fill out our short log so that we can keep track of the calls we collectively make and give your team credit when you make a lot of calls! We'll be posting the team that makes the most calls each week on social media, and will be sending out free Teens Resist stickers to teams periodically.
