Get Out the Vote

On Wednesday, October 31st at the Madison County Democrats building at the Madison County Fairgrounds from 6:00 to 8:00 pm, join our candidates for Iowa Secretary of State and Auditor, Deidre DeJear and Rob Sand, in calling our fellow democrats to remind them of early voting deadlines, follow up on absentee ballot requests, and support our local candidates. Your help is wanted and needed! Calling might not be your favorite thing to do, but as uncomfortable as it might be, imagine the feeling of regret you may have a week from now if you don’t do everything you can to make a difference.

News from the Madison County Campaign Headquarters

A message from Pam Deichmann and Barb Pfeiffer:

It’s all “Hands on Deck” for volunteers the next week. We need your help!  Sign up (and bring a fellow democrat) for a shift now… We have calls to make, poll watching to do, and walk lists to be walked. These are the final days to ensure democrats win up and down the ballot in Iowa!

But first we want you to know the Madison County Democratic Volunteers have been working hard the last three weeks. Volunteers have

  • Door knocked voter packets across Winterset, Patterson, and Bevington rural routes
  • Called on 10+ calling lists that attempt to touch voters in Winterset, St Charles, Earlham, Peru, and Truro
  • Assisted local and state candidates to door knock doors in all communities in Madison
  • Placed large and small candidate signs in all communities in Madison County
  • Walked, door knocked and distributed over 100 packets of candidate literature in Earlham
  • Walked, door knocked and distributed 20+ packets in Macksburg
  • Staffing Democratic Headquarters Tues-Sun at the fairgrounds
  • Done data entry in Vote Builder

But there is more to do… This week we plan to canvas St Charles with candidate information; make more calls and walk packets. Volunteer today. Stop or call any evening at the Democratic Headquarters to sign up for a 2 hour work shift (to phone bank or go canvassing).

For more information call Pam (515-494-4797), or Barb (515-494-5112) .
