In 2022, we need to mobilize volunteers around both nearby (House and local) and national (state-wide battlegrounds) opportunities to defend and grow progressive majorities. Join your regional team and we’ll guide you through what you need to know to get involved in the most important elections in 2022, from the Senate to your school board.

Already in? Sign up to defend the West:

While Arizona and Nevada are the purple hotspots with major statewide races to get involved in, there are opportunities across the West, especially when it comes to keeping the House in Democratic control. What happens in Vegas… affects the rest of the country in a pretty major way for untold years to come, it turns out.

Already in? Sign up to defend the Midwest:

Rebuild the Blue Wall! Just kidding, but only sort of. (Build Blue Wall Back Better?) The Midwest will be at the center of it all once again, electorally as well as geographically. We’ll need to shore up our 2020 margins to protect our gains in 2024, especially in major statewide races in Wisconsin and Michigan.

Already in? Sign up to defend the South:

The South set the standard for the rest of the nation following Joe Biden, Raphael Warnock, and Jon Ossoff’s 2020 victories in Georgia. Now, it’s time to replicate that success and expand the Georgia model regionwide. Voters throughout the South will have the opportunity to volunteer in their community, with important work to be done from Virginia to Texas, including competitive Senate races in Georgia, Florida, and North Carolina.

Already in? Sign up to defend the East:

While this part of our country may look solid blue on an electoral map, a closer look will reveal the pink and orange of many Dunkin’ Donuts signs. In 2022 it will be home to some of the closest and most important races for our majorities in the House and Senate, including big statewide races in Pennsylvania and New Hampshire and competitive House races in almost every state, so there will be no shortage of ways to get involved right in your own backyard.

FAQS

  • Why haven’t I heard from you / I’m not getting your emails?

    Sorry about that! Check your spam filter, or try re-entering your email into the sign-up form.

  • Can I speak to a live person?

    Feel free to reach out to us at [email protected] for VSA related questions. You can also contact our partner organizations for questions specific to volunteer events.

  • Can I get involved right now?

    We’re glad you asked! If you sign up for your Midterm Madness region, you’ll get weekly calls to action from us via email, but if you’re ready to get started right away with a volunteer opportunity near you, check the “Take Action” feed on your regional page to sign up for a volunteer event right away!

  • How do I sign up to be a poll worker on Election Day?

    Poll worker shortages in a number of states have caused polling places to close, making it more challenging for voters to access the ballot box, and Power the Polls will be building on its work from 2020 to recruit a new wave of younger, more diverse poll workers ahead of the 2022 midterm elections.

    Power the Polls
  • Can I send texts (or postcards or letters) instead of what you’re asking?

    While we might share a particular event because we believe it’s the most impactful way to get involved at that moment, it’s just a jumping off point. Our partners offer volunteer opportunities for all sorts. Find the ones that are right for you!

  • Can I get involved if I’m not in the U.S.?

    It depends. If you’re a US citizen, you can volunteer virtually and contribute money. Unfortunately Mobilize doesn’t accept non-US zip codes for their events, but many people use Google Voice to obtain a US phone number when they phonebank. If you’re not a US citizen, we appreciate you, but unfortunately we can’t accept your help.

  • Do you share my personal information with other organizations or political campaigns?

    No. While we will share information for how to get involved with our partners or political campaigns, we will never share or sell your email address or personal information.

  • Why isn’t X candidate featured on the website or in your program?

    If a candidate or race in your community isn’t on our target list, it’s probably for one of two reasons. One reason may be that we don’t think that it’s the best use of finite resources (both ours and yours!) Our goal is to help volunteers find genuinely competitive elections where their help is most needed. The second possible reason is that we’re not aware of it! If there’s an amazing local candidate in a competitive election in your region, feel free to shoot us an email at [email protected], and we may feature that race in the future.
