To Block Captains that assisted with the Primary Election, please remember to turn in your turf or completed packet to us ASAP!
Four ways you can turn in your packet:
– You can request access to our voter file (VAN) to enter the data yourself (watch this training to learn how)
– Scan and email them back to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
– Mail them back 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
We designed a Block Captain flyer that discusses the project, and that lists the training and canvass schedule. We hope you can share this with other Democrats you know to help us recruit more Block Captains across our state: http://nebraskademocrats.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/NEDEMS_Block-Captain-1.pdf
We have a blog that you can send to friends also that explains the Block Captain program: http://nebraskademocrats.org/blog/angry-about-gop-tax-handout-to-the-rich-become-a-block-captain/
