Florida elections are usually knife’s-edge close. Winner and loser are seldom more than one percent apart. A few hundred votes can mean the difference between winning and losing. And denying Trump Florida’s electoral college votes could mean the difference in 2020.
So Englewood Indivisible is starting to contact voters now. Our goal: to find every independent Englewood voter opposed to Trump and make sure they all cast a vote against him in November 2020. Please join us in this important effort. Click here to get started.
Here’s what we’re going to do. We’re going to visit voters registered as independents (known as NPAs in Florida for “No Party Affiliation”) and identify those who share our opposition to Trump. We will talk with them to understand what matters to them and make sure they are ready to vote. We will visit the same voters again several times before the November 2020 election.
We use the Neighborhood Leader model, where each of us establishes a relationship with a small number of households in our own neighborhoods. This model, where we take the time for in-depth conversations with voters, has been shown to be more effective in motivating people to vote than high-volume door knocking.
We provide all the training and coaching you need. We will never ask anyone to go out knocking on doors alone! (Of course, those who want to go alone are totally free to do so.) An experienced canvasser will go with beginners as many times as needed. Alternatively, we will help you team up with another canvasser so you can visit both of your lists together.
As you can see from the screenshots in this post, the Republicans are already organizing their grassroots campaign to re-elect Trump. We know from the news that Trump’s campaign is mobilizing his voters with hateful rallies, tweets and merchandise. We wouldn’t do that if we could.
But so much depends on what we will do. Please sign up here to make the difference in the 2020 election.
