As you may know, Jon Ossoff is locked in a dead heat race in Georgia’s 6th district, against Republican Karen Handel. Simply put, the winner will be determined by who does a better job at getting their people to the polls, and an Ossoff win could send a clear message to Trump’s Washington and Democrats across America that the blue wave is coming in 2018. For every 35 contacts, calls win one vote for Jon, so your calls could make the difference and win the margin of victory in this close race. And now, in the last week of early vote (ends Friday, June 16th!), and before election day (Tuesday, June 20th!) it’s the perfect time to get involved. Here are ways to get involved:
Group Phone Banks: Join a group phone bank hosted by Congressman Charlie Crist:
Thursday, June 15th from 5:00-8:00pm

Individual Phone Banking: If you aren’t able to bring folks together for a group phone bank or join a group in your area, you can make calls from your home on your own time by signing up here (if you’re already getting the daily emails with the phone bank link in the morning, you’re already signed up). Make sure to look through the Ossoff Phone Bank Packet, especially our Frequently Asked Questions section. If you wish to sign up and call in the same day, please email Eric Wimer with the Ossoff campaign directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Latino and AAPI Phone Bank Teams: If anyone is fluent in languages commonly spoken by the Asian American Community, please have them sign up for our special AAPI Outreach Team here. We also have a Latino outreach team that folks can sign up for here.
Training Conference Calls: While the phone bank packet has answers to a lot of common questions, if you have never phone banked before or want to refresh your skills, you can always join a training. Sign up to get a number and pin, then call in to join:

And finally, please be sure to keep track of the numbers you dial! We are hoping to track our progress as we go, so tally your calls up as you dial each number, and send your final call count to Jocelyn@charliecrist.com at the end of each shift.
Please reach out to Jocelyn@charliecrist.com with any questions you may have. We’re looking forward to joining you all on the phones! Thanks everyone!!
