Election Day is less than six weeks away. Early voting has already started. The election this year will have consequences at all levels, from the President to the Congress and MN Legislature. There are also important initiatives on many of the local ballots that cannot be ignored. This is not a time to sit on your hands and resign yourself to whatever happens. Step forward and work for the outcome that supports your values.
Senate District 49 has a number of ways you can get involved.
- Door Knocking. Volunteers will meet every Saturday morning thru Oct.31. We use a smart phone application to make our efforts more effective. We will have campaign literature to help illustrate our candidates. The response at the doors we target has most often been positive, but we also go out in pairs to make the process more enjoyable. We need about 30 volunteers every week to contribute 2-3 hours each to door knock. Volunteer for one week, a few or all 6 remaining thru Election Day. We will be meeting at 7600 Parklawn Dr Suite 108 in Edina. Use the Fidelity Bank entrance. For those who need the Advantage Mobile App training, meet at 9:30. For those volunteers who have completed Advantage training, meet at 10:00 to receive literature bags and assigned area
For questions or to arrange other days/times, contact SD49's Jim Bowen, (360) 927-8301, [email protected]
- Phone Calling. We will soon start calling households that we haven’t reached by door knocking. If you are willing to call from a location in Bloomington to promote our candidates and explain the local ballot initiatives, please write to [email protected].
- Lawn Signs: Candidate signs in your front yard expand their name recognition and signal your endorsement. We know that people are noticing, because several of the signs have been “borrowed”. If you live in our area (Edina, Bloomington or SE Eden Prairie), we are ready to install new ones in your yards and replace any that have gone “missing”. Let us know by contacting [email protected]. Your patience is appreciated, as the demand has been steady, and we frequently need to replenish our supply. (Info regarding lawn signs for those outside our area was recently updated on our website HERE.)
