Neighborhood Leader Program
You can help grow the grassroots of the Democratic Party by becoming a Neighborhood Leader.
The focus of the Neighborhood Leader Program (the NLP) is to impact Democratic and Progressive leaning voters by staying engaged with our neighbors on the Precinct level. You will educate and motivate fellow Democratic voters about Democratic candidates and issues.
The NLP outreach is often the most influential contact many voters will have during an election, making it an invaluable opportunity to win a Democratic vote.
Neighborhood Leaders make personal contact with their neighbors who are registered Democrats, informing them about current candidates, issues, ballot measures, etc., and encouraging them to vote.
Direct contact with voters is the most effective way of increasing Democratic turn out during elections, and the best way to communicate our progressive values and accomplishments.
How it works
- We will prepare a contact list for you. If you have been a Neighborhood Leader before, it will be a list like the one you’ve had in the past.
- We ask you to call the voters in your “turf” or geographic area around or near your neighborhood, before the ballots are mailed out, and get their commitment to voting in this election. This is tracked in our user friendly data application.
- You will also be given a voter guide/endorsement sheets (also referred to as a slate), as well as the nec. supplies for you to send out to your neighbors.
- When you have completed the voter outreach, you track these contacts in the application.
If you are willing to reach out to Democratic households in your neighborhood and encourage them to vote, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
*Please re-submit up even if you have been a neighborhood leader in the past. This will guarantee you have the most recent turf.
