2000 ELECTION ENVIRO VOLUNTEER GUIDE
SE MICHIGAN
NO SUCH THING AS A DEAD HEAT!

No matter how close, every election has a winner. When races are as tight as
they are this year it all comes down to who can get their supporters to the
polls. The Sierra Club is being besieged for help from our endorsed
candidates for GOTV (Get out the vote) volunteers. Below is a list of where
you can volunteer.
As a volunteer you may be asked to:
a) Staff the phone banks to call likely voters
b) Go out to the doors of selected voters in selected areas, knock and
encourage them to get out to vote
c) On election day you could go to selected homes to ask if they have voted
d) Stand at the polls on election day. You could probably request your own
precinct.

Campaigns do not want to turn away volunteers so, ask for the kind of work
you feel most comfortable with. However, the campaigns have identified their
key areas and your time might have the greatest impact if you go where they
need you.
