A reminder on the last training for Block Captains–we changed the date due to the Husker Football game on October 6th, so the training will now happen on October 7.
All Block Captains are invited to attend the training and celebration of your hard work at the Big Barn Party for Block Captains on October 7 from 2-4pm outside of Lincoln at the Roca barn.
If you can not drive to the training and Big Barn Party, we will FB live the training and still hold trainings in rural Nebraska–Grand Island, Alliance and North Platte on Oct. 7.

When you finish you turf of 50 houses, please remember to turn in your completed packet to us! This way we can keep track of how many doors have knocked and how many contacts we are reaching out to in order to be effective in getting out the voters in November.
We have 4 ways you can turn in your packet after you knock on your doors:
-You can request access to our voter file (VAN) to enter the data yourself
-Scan and email them back to firstname.lastname@example.org
-Mail them to the Lincoln office (201 N 8th St #210 Lincoln, NE 68508)
-Drop them off at any of our offices in Omaha, La Vista, or Lincoln.
Please complete your canvass of the 50 houses by the end of September, the earlier the better 🙂
