Canvass for Jennifer Lewis and Tim Kaine on July 7

If you couldn’t join us for our initial canvass on June 16 (or even if you did), I hope you’ll be able to devote a couple of hours to knocking on doors in Lexington or Buena Vista on Saturday July 7 for our Democratic candidates– Jennifer Lewis for Congress and Tim Kaine for US Senate– in the critical November election.

We will be working in two-hour shifts beginning from Democratic Headquarters in Lexington, 11 South Jefferson Street. You may canvass from noon to 2 p.m. or from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. We will be registering any eligible but unregistered people in the households we visit.

Samantha Litchford, the Democratic party field organizer for the Shenandoah Valley, will be here to provide training and answer any questions you may have.

Future canvasses will include Rockbridge County.

If you can participate, please let Samantha know (including which shift you would prefer). Her email is:
