Thank you for volunteering in your community! Thankful Canvassing is key to community care, voter trust, and Democratic success in November’s upcoming municipal elections. 

We’re thanking first-time voters in the 13 cities that have municipal elections this Fall. We are pivoting from door knocking to a LIT DROPS due to the Delta variant of COVID. This page contains all the information you’ll need before you go out on your shift!

You must watch this video before doing a Lit Drop. In it, you’ll find more details about thankful canvassing and training on what to say at the door if you run into anyone while handing out flyers. Here are the team leader contacts to reach out to with any questions. Team leaders have 2-3 cities they are responsible for. We also have a one-page overview of this initiative for you to reference if needed.

In these videos, you’ll receive targeted information about elected officials and upcoming municipal elections to pass on to people you talk to!

3. Fill out this waiver

Please maintain a distance of 6 feet when canvassing, even if you’re vaccinated. Please wear a mask if you come in contact with anyone during your lit drop. Feel free to take it off while walking around and put it back on when talking at the door.

4. Watch this brief tutorial on how to use the MiniVan mobile app for canvassing.

Watch before you go to canvass for the first time. This PDF version is helpful in learning how to use the MiniVan app when going door to door.

5. Sign up to LIT DROP at any time until the end of August on our Mobilize page!

Our goal is to contact 25,000 households over the next 6 weeks, so we need as many people pitching in as possible. Reaching out directly to your friends and family is the best way to get more people to sign up. Personal connection is the best tool you have!
