When: Thursday, November 8th
More than 100,000 provisional Florida ballots were originally discarded due to simple clerical errors, but we can call these voters and help them fix their ballots so their votes will count! These ballots are super important, as the Senate race is going to a recount and the governor’s race is very close and may go to a recount, giving two awesome Democrats a chance at offices in a key swing state. The deadline is 5 PM TOMORROW, so please take some time to do this as soon as possible in the morning or early afternoon. All the information you need below.
Even just 15 minutes of calls means that a few more people will get to have their votes counted this election, and with the extreme lengths that Republicans went to in order to suppress voters this election, this means a lot! Voting is a right that so many people have fought incredibly hard for; let’s honor their work by helping people make their voices heard (in 2 super crucial races nonetheless!)
***Also, if you have the financial means to do so and feel so inclined, donate last-minute to Stacey Abrams’ governor’s race in Georgia
. Her opponent engaged in egregious (and illegal!) voter suppression tactics, but the election was still incredibly close. She has yet to concede in hopes that she may get a recount, so every little bit helps elect the first black female governor in the U.S.!

The dialer is loaded with VBM signature chases. These are people that submitted VBMs before Election Day and did not sign them properly. THESE INSTRUCTIONS MUST BE FOLLOWED TO THE LETTER.
Each phonebanker should be trained to help the voter through the affidavit process. They should have one window with the dialer, one window with the affidavit and one with their email.
