Eagle County Democrats is 100% led and run by volunteers, and this year we had an amazing team who took time to learn more skills in the face of needing to move our efforts 100% virtual in the face of COVID. Volunteers like you wrote over 10,000 postcards, made thousands of phone calls, and sent tens of thousands of texts to Get Out the Vote this year!
The most effective outreach to voters is at the local grassroots level, so we appreciate your interest in volunteering.
The Election may be over, but there is always work to be done and we’ll be in need of volunteers to help with local initiatives soon. If you’d like to be kept up to date about future volunteer opportunities, please complete our form below.
Writing Warrior Postcards to Voters Program
Write postcards to unreliable voters encouraging them to vote. We'll give you a list, a supply of postcards, and guidance on what to write. You can provide postage, or we will provide for you. We send them at around the same time ballots are sent out. Learn more and request postcards >>
Letter to the Editor Program
Colorado is home to over 100 newspapers across the state in our 64 counties, and Letters to the Editor are one of the best ways to communicate to voters! By being a part of the Colorado Democratic Party’s Letter to the Editor campaign you can help hold Republicans like Lauren Boebert, Ken Buck, Patrick Neville, and others accountable in the local press. We need people to draft letters and/or sign your name to existing letters to submit to our local paper, The Vail Daily. Complete the form below if interested.
Knocking On Doors
The most effective way to engage with voters is by one-to-one conversations. The Colorado Democratic Party Coordinated Campaign is sending out voters to knock on doors in Eagle County from now until Election Day. There are multiple shifts available on Wednesday * Thursday evenings, and during the day on Saturdays and Sundays.
Making Phone Calls
Phone banking help is also needed weekly, in-person on Tuesdays at 5 PM. Learn more and Signup >>>
Paid Fellows Program
There are also opportunities to be paid for voter outreach. The Colorado Democratic Party is seeking people to work as part-time paid fellows to support the re-election campaigns of Sen. Michael Bennet, Gov. Jared Polis, several US House seats, statewide constitutional office holders, and more down the ballot. The Coordinated Campaign will persuade and mobilize voters to elect Colorado’s Democrats in 2022. Learn more here>>
You must commit to a minimum of 10 hours per week with pay of $15/hour. Contact Emi Cooper at email@example.com
