Phonebanking: Get Started

With traditional events and canvassing on hold, phonebanking is more important than ever. We need to make sure every Democratic supporter is ready to vote and committed to making their voice heard.

Step One: Sign up as a volunteer

If you haven’t completed the DVC volunteer form yet, please do that here. Be sure to check “Phonebanking” as one of your volunteer interests.

If you’ve already signed up as a volunteer before, skip straight to step two!

Step Two: RSVP for a phonebanking event

To begin calling, RSVP here for a phonebank training session on Zoom where our team will help you set up your accounts, go over the campaigns, and make sure you’re ready to call efficiently and effectively.

We hold two training sessions per day, three days a week:

  • Tuesdays: Sign up for 4pm -or- 5pm (Pacific time)
  • Thursdays: Sign up for 4pm -or- 5pm (Pacific time)
  • Saturdays: Sign up for 1pm -or- 2pm (Pacific time)

If you are already trained with us and have further questions or need tech support, join the sessions at any time.

  1. RSVP here for any of our training sessions
  2. Check your email for a message from the California Democratic Party
  3. Click the Zoom link provided in that email at the start of the session

Current volunteers:

If you are already signed up as a DVC Phonebanking volunteer, and you need information on campaigns to call, please email and we’ll get back to you with access to our campaigns list.

Not sure if you’ve already signed up as a volunteer? Email and we’ll check for you.

Zoom with us each week

We ask that new phonebankers attend one of our Zoom sessions before you begin so our phonebank team can help with your at-home setup and go over the campaigns you can call for. We also ask that our regular phonebankers join a Zoom session at least once a week so we can go over any important updates.

Have questions? Email your phonebanking questions.
