Flip the West and Commit to Flip Blue jointly host a five-day a week virtual phone bank focused on flipping U.S. Senate seats.
The Senate is key to promoting racial justice, protecting the courts, healthcare, the environment, and so many other critical issues. We are building voter excitement and participation through voter registration campaigns, targeted information about the Republican Senators and the Democratic candidates, and Get Out The Vote drives, throughout the 2020 election cycle. Voter to voter contact has proven to be extremely effective, so our phone banks are critical in our quest to flip Senate seats, keep our House majority and win back the White House.
Starting July 6th, we will be calling Newly Registered Democrats in Arizona on an easy predictive dialing system. We will be reaching out to new voters who haven’t requested an absentee ballot and urging them to sign up to vote by mail AND to vote in the August 4th primary.
What to expect: You will join others at a “Virtual Phone Bank Center” on Zoom where you will either go to a break-out room for training based on your level of experience, or get set up to start making calls right away. Technical support is always available. Throughout, you’re invited to meet your fellow phone bankers, share success stories, and give us feedback.
What you need: You need a fully charged cell phone, computer or tablet. In order to use Zoom, your computer needs to have a microphone and have audio enabled. If your computer has a camera, we recommend you enable it also.
However, starting July 6, for the Newly Registered Dems automated dialer (which is super intuitive and fun!), you will need to HAVE A LAPTOP OR DESKTOP with the CHROME browser to make these calls. iPads or phones won’t support the automated dialer. Safari or Firefox won’t support this program, either.
If you are a first time Zoom user please download the free app and take some time to familiarize yourself with how to use this application.
When is it? There are five Virtual Phone Banks per week: Mondays and Tuesdays from 4-6pm, Wednesdays 3-5pm, Thursdays 4-6pm and Saturdays 10am -12pm (all Pacific time zone).
Sign up for multiple dates and you will receive a Confirmation Email from Flip the West for each date with links to the event and the script, and links to additional training opportunities.
If you have any questions, please contact Commit to Flip Blue’s Graham at firstname.lastname@example.org or Flip the West’s Danny at email@example.com.
