Overview

The battle for Democracy is urgent. This November it is critical that we mobilize every Democratic voter to stave off an increasingly radical Republican Party at the polls.

We are currently seeking Voter Contact Canvassers to mobilize voters to the polls to elect Mandela Barnes to the US Senate, re-elect Governor Evers, and help Democrats win in the 2022 midterm elections. Increasing voter turnout is one of the keys to winning in November, and we must win if Democrats are going to be able to address systemic issues impacting the most vulnerable communities in our country.

Get paid well! Canvass positions start at $20/hour. Leadership positions start at $22/hour. We offer overtime pay, paid training, sick pay, bonuses for friend referrals, full paid healthcare for all full time staff and mileage reimbursement for drivers. Canvassers who maintain a full-time schedule are eligible for a $150 weekly bonus on top of the hourly rate.

Stay Safe!  We have strict health and safety protocols that include a contactless approach to campaign work. We provide all of the training and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) you will need.
