I’m a Democratic Precinct Committeeman, so what should I do now? (Oct 16, 2018)
Here are some things a PC should be doing this month…
1. Canvass your precinct to identify Democratic voters. You can write a Precinct Letter (see article on precinct letters) to distribute as you go door to door. You can also take candidate literature if you wish. You can ask Kim Savage or Chris Johnson to print out a list of voters for your precinct, or you can use a list from the DuPage County Election Commission. You do not need to go to the doors of voters who tend to vote Republican, although you can if you have time. In this election especially, it is a good idea to canvass Independent voters or voters for whom you do not have much data.
When you talk to your voters, ask them if they plan to vote for Democratic candidates in November. Most will tell you yes or no. Be sure to record what you find out. If voters tell you they will be voting Democratic, ask them if they have a plan to vote. Ask them if they would like to vote by mail and give them a Vote by Mail application (available in our office, or you can download from DuPage Elections website.)
2. Stay informed about issues, including some important local issues.
3. Canvass or phone bank for a candidate of your choice.
