FIGHT FOR 51

We need Rev. Raphael Warnock in the Senate.

Why is this important?

  • With a 51st Democratic senator, we don’t have to negotiate how committees are formed with Mitch McConnell, as we did in 2020. Democrats will control and chair all Senate committees.
  • The influence of the least supportive Democratic senators is reduced. We all saw how hard it was to reach deals with all 50 Democrats. With a vote to spare, we can make much better deals for the American people.
  • If a Democratic senator were to become unable to serve, we wouldn’t risk losing our majority.
  • VP Kamala Harris can be a more effective partner and surrogate for President Biden, because she’ll have to spend less time in Congress breaking ties.
  • Most importantly, Rev. Warnock is a decent man and a capable senator—and he’s running against a candidate who will be neither.

Action: Ballot curing

Several states with close races have ballot-curing phone bank campaigns now, where you can help voters who had small errors on their ballots correct those errors so their ballots will be counted.

You can find ballot-curing campaigns to join on this list from our partner organization Field Team 6.

Thank you for all that you do to help.

Our Story

How it started

The Democratic Volunteer Center (DVC) began in 2010. Originally based in Silicon Valley, our goal was to harness the expertise, passion, and resources of the mid-Peninsula to elect Democratic candidates. A founding principle of the DVC is inclusion, bringing together volunteers across the progressive spectrum, regardless of any relationship with the Party. Read more about the DVC here.

How it changed

In 2020 everything changed, and the DVC changed as well. We moved our phone banks and meetings online, and began distributing supplies for people to volunteer from home. We also began to welcome volunteers from across the country and around the world. We now have volunteers from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and abroad.

What now?

One thing is clear: we won’t go back to business as usual. We’ve reopened for in-person volunteering, but we’ll also continue supporting and working with remote volunteers both near and far. So whether you’re in Mountain View, California or Mountain Creek, New Jersey (or Mountain Creek, Australia), volunteer with us today!

Volunteer Activities

Phone banking

The DVC will continue to support Senator Raphael Warnock’s re-election campaign as he goes to a December 6 runoff. Please check back, or sign up here for emails, for information about these upcoming phone banks.

Postcard and letter writing

Postcard Parties have wrapped up for this election. Thanks to everyone who joined!

Please email Deb at charlottelechat13@gmail.com if you have questions about this year’s postcarding campaign.

Texting

There are several Democratic and progressive organizations that run text banks during campaign season, and some operate year-round. The DVC compiles information and provides updates about texting organizations and campaigns for our volunteers. See our text banking guide here.

Canvassing

Canvassing is an incredibly effective tool. Volunteers have been canvassing in the Central Valley to help us win and hold onto Congressional seats from Modesto to Bakersfield.

See our canvassing page to learn more about canvassing.
