Indivisible Evanston

Canvassing: Flip Wisconsin 2020

Join Indivisible Evanston on December 14 as we canvass in Wauwatosa in Milwaukee County, identified by the Wisconsin Dems as an important state legislative district. 

  • Location: Colectivo Coffeeshop: 6745 W. Wells St, Wauwatosa, WI

WHY WISCONSIN?

President Obama won Wisconsin in 2008 and 2012. In 2016, Trump won Wisconsin by less than 23K votes. All predictive lists concur that Wisconsin, with just 10 electoral votes, could easily be the state that determines the 2020 presidential winner; our boots on the ground are needed to flip it!

WHAT WILL WE BE DOING?

We'll be working with the Wisconsin Dems, knocking on doors of residents and collecting information (see attached script for details):

  • Issues the residents care about (listening!)
  • Support for elected officials
  • Party identification
  • Volunteering with the Dems
  • Voter registration status

CHOOSE TO CARAVAN WITH US FROM EVANSTON OR DRIVE DIRECTLY on 12/14 - see sign-up below!

WHAT ABOUT THE DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY?

We are not supporting a particular Democratic presidential candidate. But it is critical to build up Democratic Party support and data early, regardless of who the eventual nominee will be. The Republican Party of Wisconsin organizes year round to keep its voters energized – we Democrats need to work even harder.

CANVASSING TOOLS -  Packets & MiniVAN:

There are two tool to choose from for canvassing (YOU decide which option is right for YOU)

  1. Hard Copy packets with voter lists to collect information
  2. MiniVAN is an app for mobile canvassing with voter lists that saves campaign staff time assembling turf packets and entering data. If you have not used MiniVAN before and have not downloaded it to your phone:
    • Read the attached MiniVAN guide prepared by the WI Dems office
    • Download the app to your phone. The app is called MiniVAN Touch in the Apple app store and MiniVAN on android phones. At this point, you only need to download the app and create an account (step # 1). We will receive our list number (step #2) and further training in WI.
