JOIN THE MASS VICTORY '06 CAMPAIGN TEAM TODAY IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD!
Until now, our Party geared up only a few months before an election and then dismantled operations immediately after the polls closed. Consequently, it’s been 20 years since we last elected a Democratic Governor. It's simple: if Democrats are going to take back the Governor’s seat in Massachusetts, we can't just show up for the last quarter of the match and expect to win.
The Massachusetts Democratic Party has been hard at work this summer on the 2156 Strategy—the plan to have a local Democrat like you working the campaign in your neighborhood and in each of the 2156 precincts across Massachusetts. We’re moving fast to build a permanent infrastructure across our state.
By getting involved in the Victory '06 Campaign--the largest Democratic grassroots campaign ever in Massachusetts and the first truly grassroots campaign since Michael Dukakis won the Corner Office three times in the 70’s and 80’s--you will:
Make your voice heard! As you meet people in your precinct, you’ll talk to them about their concerns and beliefs. This not only starts an on-going relationship, but also the Mass Victory ’06 Campaign tracks this information to help with messaging and to tailor our campaign to individual voters.
Make a difference! Every new vote you lock up for Democrats is another step toward a better future for all of us in Massachusetts and across the country!
Make friends and have fun! You’ll meet a lot of people and whether they’re voters or active in the campaign with you, you’ll build relationships with others in your neighborhood that will last a lifetime.
All politics is local. Nothing is more important to a successful campaign than voter-to-voter contact and no person is more persuasive with voters than neighbors like you! You know your neighborhood better than anyone because you live there and voters will value your opinion more when they find out you live nearby. You, your neighbors, and others like you throughout Massachusetts will win this important election by building the real relationships with voters that are needed to persuade them, get them involved, and turn out their vote on Election Day.
The 50 State Strategy
DNC Chairman Howard Dean is committed to having a a local leader working in every precinct across the country, and Mass Democratic Party Chairman Phil Johnston has set an ambitious Massachusetts timeline for this goal: We will have a local captain in every precinct by the end of this year. You'll build relationships with voters and volunteers in your area and lead a local team to identify supporters, persuade swing voters, and get out the vote—resulting in tens of thousands of volunteers state-wide on Election Day and before!
That's why we need you. In the last governor's race we came within 50 votes per precinct, so the need to identify, persuade, and turn out every last voter in your precinct on Election Day is critical.
The Massachusetts Democratic Party will provide trainings, materials and guidance, but we need you to help make this campaign a success! Join the Victory '06 Campaign by signing up as a:
Precinct Captain The key to victory! You’ll build relationships with voters and activate volunteers there. You’ll do voter-registration, persuasion, Get-Out-The-Vote, and other projects within the Mass Victory '06 Campaign.
Block Captain You’ll help the precinct captain build relationships with voters on your block or in your neighborhood. You'll be trained to help the precinct do voter-registration, persuasion, GOTV, and other projects within the Victory '06 Campaign.
Action Squad Member You cannot participate as a Precinct Captain or Block Captain, but will help out when you can for various Victory '06 activities.
This is very important for our Party and for Massachusetts. Make sure that after Election Day you can look back on the campaign with no regrets, great memories and a sense of accomplishment. Make sure that you can say that you put in the hard work needed to win back the Corner Office! We look forward to your help with this historic effort!
