HR1/S1 Phonebank Inquiry
VoPro Pros has been recruited to support a West Virginia group that is organizing voters to register their support for HR1/S1 with Senator Manchin's office. The goal is to make 100,000 calls per week, over six weeks, with a total of 600,000 calls. Phonebanks will be Tuesday and Thursday evenings, and Saturday afternoons. We are looking for VoPro Pros available to be callers or provide phone bank support.
HR1/S1 or the "For the People Act" is the most comprehensive way we can protect our democracy. The bill directly addresses VPP's core value of protecting voting accessibility in many important ways, including requiring automatic voter registration and same day registration, at least two weeks of early voting, and limiting voter roll purges.
The bill is co-sponsored by 49 senators - all the Democrats, with the exception of Joe Manchin of West Virginia. Manchin has voiced support for elements of the bill, and acknowledged that something must be done. Experts say the best way to win his full support is for him to hear directly from voters in West Virginia. Our phone banks will make it as easy as possible for voters to register their support for HR1/S1 by patching them directly through to Senator Manchin's office.
Phone banks will be spearheaded by a local West Virginia group, and facilitated by Common Cause and Represent Us with our support. This project has been carefully organized to ensure a positive volunteer experience. Phone banks will run 2-3 days a week in May and June. The days are tentatively planned for Tuesday and Thursday evening and Saturday early afternoon.
Please fill out this quick survey to let us know if you are interested and available. Training will be provided for phone bank support staff.
