About Volunteer Activities

Remote, online, and at-home activities

Phonebanking: Make calls to support national, state, and sometimes local candidates. No experience necessary. We’ll train you! If you’re already a DVC phonebanker, email help@demvolctr.org to get info on campaigns to call for.

Textbanking: Reach a thousand voters an hour to support candidates and get out the vote! We provide the training.

Postcard & Letter Writing: Help hard-to-reach voters get registered and remind people to vote. Handwritten notes get noticed!

Technical Support: Do you have networking and computer skills? Help support our phonebanking operation.

In-person activities: Coming back one day!

We will resume these types of activities when it is both safe and legal to do so.

Canvassing: Walk neighborhoods locally, around California, and/or in other states. Distribute important materials door-to-door, support candidates or initiatives, get out the vote, etc.

Registering Voters: Sign up all-important new voters at the DVC or at events around the area.

Event Support: Help set up and/or clean up at special events. Take photos, bring food, greet attendees, and more.

Office Support: Greet DVC visitors, provide information, assist with merchandise, and help with other office work. Keep our volunteers nourished by stocking the DVC kitchen with healthy food and beverages.
