Display a Lawn Sign or Campaign Banner This volunteer shows his or her support for Martin’s campaign by displaying a lawn sign or banner. These can be picked up at one of our campaign offices and displayed in lawns or windows. Delivery may also be available.
Delivery – Respond to Supporter Requests This volunteer responds to requests for campaign materials from supporters in the district. Under direction from campaign staff, they deliver lawn signs and other campaign materials to voters near their closest office location.
Social Media This volunteer follows the campaign on social media platforms. He or she helps promote the campaign’s social media presence through Facebook likes and comments, and retweets.
Office Staff This volunteer staffs one of our office locations during designated hours during weekdays or weekends. You would help answer inbound calls, greeting walk-in voters, hand out lawn signs and other campaign materials, and funneling media requests to the Campaign Manager.
Event Staff As we identify community events that provide good opportunities for exposure, we always benefit from having volunteers supplement our campaign team members with presence at a community event. This might include helping to staff a booth or event table, distribute literature and share information with those that ask about Martin’s candidacy and the Upstate Jobs Party.
Internship Opportunities Interns might be local High School, College, or Home School students or others wanting the opportunity to work closely with the Campaign Manager and other campaign staff. Duties may include staffing offices, attending large campaign events to aid staff, volunteer recruitment, and other tasks as assigned.
Find or Host Events in Your Community The campaign needs volunteers to locate events in their local communities that would be good for Martin to attend and/or speak. In addition, we need volunteers who are willing to host a house party. House parties are smaller events at private homes in which volunteers invite some of their close friends and family to meet with Martin in a smaller setting.
Voter Outreach This volunteer can serve in a number of roles designed to reach out to voters. This can include calling to identify likely voters in the district, assisting in stuffing envelopes with correspondence, and for some, possibly knocking on doors to identify likely voters. This outreach just gathers simple data about voters in the district and you would not be asked to persuade voters or engage in debate.
Out of District Volunteers Yes, people living outside the NY-22 District can help! Social Media and Voter Outreach (described above) are two roles that people can fill from anywhere. If you have friends or family in the District you can also assist in reaching out to them to share information about Martin the Upstate Jobs Party. And of course, financial contributions from individuals are also welcome as it increases the amount of resources we can allocate towards getting our message out to voters.
