Dear Fellow Activists,

Sunday, July 23rd

Hudson Valley Strong is joining our friends and partners in activism for NY19 Votes summer canvass. We need your support in engaging voters and registering Democrats by walking door to door to addresses that are Democrat friendly and those who have not declared a party. You will be supplied with information on our candidates and registration forms for those in need of re-registering or registering to vote for the first time.

Location: Rhinebeck Town Hall, 80 East Market Street

Time: 1:00 pm and/or 3:00 pm

Date: Sunday, July 23rd

Training will be provided at 1:00 pm and again at 3:00 pm. We will go over the instructions, review your scripts and walk lists. We will pair inexperienced canvassers with experienced folk.

Please join us at Rhinebeck Town Hall for this important day of turning Duchess BLUE.
