Florida Democrats have made a quick and effective pivot to digital organizing in the age of COVID-19. On Saturday May 2 and Sunday May 3, volunteers across the state participated in a Virtual Weekend of Action by attending dozens of live online trainings and calling voters to conduct wellness check-ins and enroll them in vote-by-mail.
Okaloosa Democrats’ participation was strong! We scheduled 46 training shifts and 28 volunteers made 2,363 calls to Democrats in Okaloosa County. Across the state, the numbers were even more impressive. Over 250 volunteers contacted 16,000 voters. And since April 1st, the Florida Democratic Party’s team of organizers and volunteers have called, texted and directly messaged more than 1.5 million Floridians. This is important because research shows that nothing increases voter turnout like personal contact from concerned and engaged citizens.
Thank you to all our amazing volunteers who showed up to make the Weekend of Action a success! Our next Weekend of Action is May 30-31. Sign up here!
