NDP Adjusts Block Captain Protocols in Light of Coronavirus Concerns

NOTE: The NDP sent the following message today to all of our Block Captions:

Dear Block Captains,

We wanted to update you on the situation with our neighborhood contact plan.  With the Coronavirus/COVID-19 having reached Nebraska, we want you and all Nebraskans to be safe. 

We are going to send out contact lists to you that include the phone numbers and email addresses of your neighbors so that you can contact them from a distance. The calls and emails will be focused on encouraging people to fill out a Vote By Mail application so they can vote safely from home.

Our Block Captain plan has changed drastically because of the virus and we will update you on the full plan by early next week. We are watching the situation closely and are prepared to make changes as needed.

If you are self-quarantining as a precautionary measure, and are bored, I will be setting up virtual phone banks so let me know if you are interested in doing that. We will also be creating packets of “Welcome to the Party” postcards that we send to newly registered Democrats so volunteers can also help with that outreach.

We will do a Facebook Live training update once our new plan is all set but we wanted to reach out to you since we know everyone was getting ready to do their first door knocks!

Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. 

Thank you for your understanding,

Gina and the NDP Team
