The Missouri Democratic Party is coming down to Springfield to do a Get Out the Vote training for 7th Congressional district leaders this Monday, September 29 at 2 p.m. at the Teamsters Hall in Springfield, 1850 E Division.
Anyone who would benefit from the training is welcome to attend, so please pass along the information to any candidates or key activists.
If you can't make it however, Kay will be there and will be happy to pass on any information; you can call her at Headquarters during business hours.
Let's Send Charlie Norr Back to Jefferson City
and Elect Other Democrats
Yard signs for Jim Evans, Rusty Aton, Charlie Norr, and Kevin Knox are at Democratic Headquarters. Pick up yard signs between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday.
If you want a County Clerk who intends to follow election laws and protect the rights of all Greene County voters and not one whose goal is to implement voter ID and restrict absentee voting, help Rusty Aton. Anyone walking for another candidate could also carry and deliver campaign literature for Rusty. His flyers are available at Democratic Headquarters.
If you live in the SE and far SW Greene County area and are willing to walk your neighborhood for Rusty, email email@example.com or call 877-9271. Rusty is so committed to making sure that Greene County continues to have a County Clerk who will protect the voting rights of all voters that he is personally willing to match $1 for each $2 donated to his campaign. Help him raise the money to compete for the County Clerk position. Campaign donation envelopes are available at Democratic Headquarters. Pick up Rusty's campaign cards at Democratic Headquarters and give them to your family, friends and neighbors. Leave them as door hangers if no one is home.
Talking to potential voters at the door is one of the most effective ways of turning out Democratic voters. Volunteer to canvass if you are able.
Saturdays and Sundays in September, Democratic Headquarters will be open for volunteers to pick up canvassing lists for Angie Filbeck and Charlie Norr. On Saturdays the office will be open 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for people to pick up and return lists. Sundays, the office will be open 9:45 a.m. to 10 a.m. for people to pick up lists. Return lists between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, as early in the week as you can.
