Interested in connecting with your neighbors who are Democrats? The effort we have started, a joint project of AADC and Indivisible Auburn, is called the “Progressive Neighborhood Project.” Paul Comiskey, AADC voter services chairperson, is leading the project. There are monthly meetings the second Saturday at 1:30 at Depoe Bay Coffee in downtown Auburn.
Volunteers receive lists of households with Democrats and No Party Preference voters in their neighborhoods, and are then asked to contact as many neighbors as they feel comfortable with. On the initial contact, volunteers introduce themselves and explain that they are neigh-bors who are interested in getting people engaged in the 2018 election, and ask for a commitment to vote in both the June primary and the general election. Scott Johnson has written a suggested script to use for these initial contacts, which he can send you.
Does this sound like something you would like to get started with? If so, please send me the names of streets in your neighborhood which you would like to cover. You don’t need to do a lot to begin with; it’s always possible to expand your effort later. I can send you a voter list, and Scott can send you the script. Please consider coming to the next meeting Depoe Bay.
