Dear Roane Democrats:
1. This Saturday, September 22, from 1-2, Dr. Danielle Mitchell and/or campaign manager, Samantha, will meet all of the enthusiastic volunteers from Anderson & Roane counties. Danielle and Samantha talked a bit about coordinating some efforts between the counties and proposed a joint meeting. In this meeting, we will learn how to CANVASS, door to door, to talk face to face with people. It sounds scary but shouldn’t be with a team member! We will imagine doing this in neighborhoods that have a low voter turnout so we can talk to folks directly about getting registered and/or getting to the polls. This meeting will be held at the Oak Ridge Unitarian Universalist Church, 809 Oak Ridge Turnpike, Oak Ridge.
2. Next Monday, September 24, at 7 PM at the Greenwood School, we will create canvassing teams. We plan to go to Harriman and Rockwood to get out the vote in the next few weeks! We will dedicate 2 hour blocs (say, 3-5 on Sundays or 5-7 on weekdays). We want to make sure on this first run out that we encourage folks to register to vote before it’s too late!
This is why we’re members of the Roane Democrats: to encourage voting and to elect Democrats!
See you soon, Jinx Watson, Secretary RCDP
