The Fifth District Congressional Caucuses are right around the corner. There is lots of information below about how to get involved, both as a voter and as a supporter of the process.
Your voice matters! Show up at your local caucus! If you’re not sure where you’re registered, check this site. Remember that you have to be registered to vote beforehand and that you have to show up on time. (You don’t need to show identification to vote but if you’ve got ID, it might be helpful to speed along the check-in process.) For information on the caucus process, follow this link and/or read this info sheet.
Volunteer at neighboring caucuses! Voters throughout the Fifth District are fired up, so turnout will be high–and the caucus organizers could use help! Women of the Fifth has offered to help neighboring caucuses with their volunteer needs. Sign up here to help at these important events.
Come to our caucus events! Keep an eye out for our tent at the Albemarle County caucus on April 16 and join us for a pre-caucus gathering at Kardinal Hall at 11:00 on April 21! Keep an eye out for event invitations.
Help mobilize voters! We outlined lots of ways to help protect and mobilize the vote at the Voter Registration Campaign Kick-off we co-hosted with Indivisible and other groups last week. Here are some follow-ups from that event:
- Attend this training session on Saturday, April 7 to learn how to volunteer for Spread the Vote, an awesome organization that helps disenfranchised people get the identification they need to vote.
- Attend this voter registration training session on April 28 organized by our colleagues at 100 Black Women of Charlottesville Albemarle.
- Sign up here to team up with Virginia Organizing to register voters and restore the rights of disenfranchised voters–this will be an ongoing effort between now and November, so look for a more developed calendar and extra opportunities as we head toward the general election.
- Send us a note if you’d like to be involved in our regional outreach efforts or if you’d like to help us phone bank over the coming weeks.
Think about running for office! The Road Forward PAC is hosting an info session about its Candidate Development Academy on April 15 which will feature Tom Perriello, David Toscano, and Joe Platania. Make plans to join and learn about the Road Forward’s education and training programs.
Support Democrats! Senator Tim Kaine will be kicking off his campaign at the Haven on Saturday, April 7 at 5 pm!
