Flyer the Quad
Mar
13
to Mar 16

Flyer the Quad

We ordered 5,000 flyers, yes - 5,000. Now we need you to help get them into the hands of students to make sure they know what their voting options are.

It's quick, it's easy, and most importantly - it's effective! We have an info flyer, you hand it to the students, tell them in the Union where to go vote, they vote. Boom - done.

This is an outdoors, on your feet activity on the UIUC Quad, so please plan accordingly.

P.S. We will be working out of the Ebel table. This DOES NOT mean you have to hand out Ebel lit. You don't have to hand out any campaign specific literature. The flyer we made has no candidate names, just voting info. Kyle and the Ebel Campaign are just gracious and allowing us to use their table.

Sign up to flyer the quad.

Textbank the students and GOTV

to Mar 10

Textbank the students and GOTV

We have phone numbers for over 1,000 students that we registered to vote on Quad Day - this is wonderful! But now we need your help to text or phone bank them to make sure they know about early voting on campus the week of March 13th.

Script, instructions, training all provided - we just need you and your phone. Please help us out and do a shift!

There is free, close parking to the McKinley Foundation.

P.S. The current County Clerk estimates less than 200 students will vote on campus for this entire election. Contacting these 1,000 students will go a long way to making sure they are taken seriously as voters in Champaign County.

Sign up for texbanking.
