Wisconsin Democrats need held with absentee ballot training

Two-hour sessions tomorrow, Friday, Saturday and Monday. Training available for the first half-hour.

The November 8th General Election is rapidly approaching, and voters need your help fixing errors on their absentee ballots! Join WisDems for a brief overview of our cure program, followed by a cure phonebank. We'll review why we make these calls, the types of cure "buckets," how to use the VPB and Checklist, and more.

After the 30 minute training, we'll keep the zoom room open for an additional 90 minutes to make calls together. We encourage you to join for as long as you're able! Experienced volunteers will be able to skip the training and get straight to calling.
