Introduction to Canvassing & Voter Outreach

Studies show that canvassing is the the most effective way to win elections. Join us to flip Orange County blue!

This is an introduction to canvassing/voter outreach with the Grassroots Organizing Program of the Democratic Party of Orange County (GRO*DPOC).

You will learn how to listen actively to the concerns of voters, and help them identify Democratic party and other progressive activities in which they may be interested.

No previous experience required – just an interest in finding out more about how we are going to turn Orange County blue!

Led by Linda May with Joe McLaughlin.
