Volunteers are the lifeblood of the Democratic Party. Whether you are volunteering for the DGTDO or for local candidates, you are an important part of the electoral process.
We need to build our team with team leaders, canvassers, phone bankers, bag stuffers, and more. What can you do to ensure Democratic victories up and down the ballot?
Politics is not a spectator sport and it is essential that everyone contributes time and talent to the best of their abilities

Hosting a house party is a great way to enhance our grassroots organizing efforts. It is a great way to get to know your Democratic neighbors and get them engaged with local candidates and issues.
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will put you in touch with candidates who need your help.
Invite your friends and neighbors and provide light refreshments and beverages. You will enjoy a great evening and know that you have assisted in building a network of support for Democratic candidates.
Join volunteers from across Downers Grove and help empower new voters in your community! Some of the most important ways you can get involved are to register and engage voters, create and share important information, defend our voting rights, and take action on the issues that impact our lives.
Generally, letters are limited to 250 words. Make sure your subject line says “letter to the editor” when you email your letter. You could add an explanatory phrase (e.g., subject heading “letter to the editor on COD”). Editors get a lot of emails, so it’s wise to make your subject heading descriptive.
You MUST include your address and daytime phone with your letter. They won’t publish it without calling you first.
Contact the corporate media too!
