Campaign HQ

To ensure the health and safety of all of our members and volunteers, the West Hartford Democrats will not have a physical campaign headquarters in 2020. But that doesn’t mean we’re not working hard to elect Democrats up and down the ballot. We hope this virtual campaign headquarters will offer some resources for you to get involved.

PHONE BANKING

As always, this remains the No. 1 method of voter outreach. Having volunteers willing to spend an hour or two making calls every week is our greatest need. Don’t worry if you’ve never phone banked — we’ll train you! We regularly post notices of upcoming virtual phone banks on our social media accounts for Women for Biden (every Tuesday and Thursday), as well as other local and national groups. As the local campaigns begin to organize their own phone banks, we’ll be sure to share details about those as well. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for the latest.

HOST A YARD SIGN

The West Hartford Democrats do not currently have any yard signs to distribute. However, the CT Dems are selling “Connecticut for Biden-Harris” signs in their online store. Signs and other items are also available for purchase directly from the Biden campaign. For information about signs for local candidates, please contact the individual campaigns.

CANVASSING (DOOR-KNOCKING)

Another popular and effective method of voter outreach, good old-fashioned door-knocking, will be less common this year as a result of the pandemic. The West Hartford Democrats do not anticipate canvassing this election season, though some of the local campaigns have chosen to canvas. You can be confident that precautions will be taken to ensure the safety of both volunteers and residents.

SUPPORT OUR LOCAL CANDIDATES

Our candidates for State House and Senate have their own campaigns. While we try to be aware of all of their activities to maximize our support, we might miss something. The candidates’ respective campaign managers are the best sources for information about volunteer opportunities, yard signs, etc. Their contact information is provided below:
