ONLINE - IndivisiText MA Text Bank Training Sunday, May 17 @ 7:00 - 8:00 PM
Texting is as effective as door-knocking to get voters engaged and motivated. And with so many people stuck at home, we have the potential to mobilize a large number of people!

Come to a 1-hour training session via Zoom on Sunday, May 17, at 7pm to learn how to text bank for Alex Morse and other progressive candidates – no prior experience required!
Ranked Choice Voting Signature Drive The Campaign to get the final round of signatures to achieve ballot access began on May 6th. 13,374 signatures are needed for this round. We have until the end of June to finish the signature collection. Voter Choice Massachusetts (VCM) has plans to achieve this while maintaining social distancing.
The methods of reaching voters includes the use of electronic signatures and postal mail. The collection is well underway.
Please get involved. For information, visit the website Voterchoice2020.org, and sign up as a Volunteer. If you cannot volunteer at this time you can Pledge to sign the petitions.
Please note that the signatures have to be voters who have not signed in the last round. Are you not sure if you signed? Then you should fill out the pledge form. There will be an app to check who has signed before. OR you can contact your Minuteman Indivisible Champion Bob Avallone by email or on Slack, he will help you with the process.
