WE DID IT!

Thanks to the many DVC volunteers who worked to re-elect Raphael Warnock to the Senate. Your Get Out the Vote efforts sent Raphael Warnock back to the Senate and Herschel Walker home.

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

Postcard and letter writing

Thank you postcard and letter writers for helping drive turnout in this election! Check back for more chances to write to voters soon.

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.
