HD41- People to People Canvass Day is this Saturday, July 28th

Enjoy a fun morning with other Dems in the district, walking a selected precinct(s), going door-to-door, and listening to voters! Meet at county party headquarters at 9:30 for a quick briefing, team up and head out.

This event will repeat on the 4th Saturday of every month through October 27.

What is the People to People Campaign? 

The People to People (P2P) campaign is a door to door listening campaign aimed at learning about issues our neighbors care most about, and what they want from their candidates, elected officials, and government. We’re listening to voters to make their issues our issues. This information will be shared with Democratic nominees so their campaigns resonate with constituents in terms of their values and issues.
