Washington State Democratic Party’s Coordinated Campaign Celebrates One Million Calls to General Election Voters

Since the 2020 August primary, our Coordinated Campaign has led thousands of volunteers in making more than a million calls to get-out-the-vote this year

For Immediate Release | October 20, 2020

SEATTLE — With just 14 days left in the 2020 General Election voting period, the Washington State Democratic Party is working nonstop to reach voters and elect Democrats up and down the ballot across Washington state. Since the 2020 August primary, our Coordinated Campaign has trained thousands of volunteers, hosted more than ten thousand volunteer shifts, and has made more than one million calls to voters across the state. In total, our volunteers have made more than two million calls since our transition to responsible remote volunteering in March as our Coordinated Campaign led Democratic State Parties nationally in innovating and adapting to organizing safely during the pandemic.

This is the most critical election in our lifetime. We are just two weeks away from November 3rd, and Washington voters are shattering 2016 records for ballots received during the first week of ballot drop boxes being open. We are making tremendous strides in our efforts to get-out-the-vote despite the unprecedented challenges of running an entirely virtual campaign. Every day from now through November 3rd, our organizers will be leading volunteers in regional phone banks reaching out to their neighbors to make sure they return their ballots as early as possible.

If Washingtonians have any questions about voting, they can reach our voter protection hotline at (206) 309-VOTE (8683). Our voter protection hotline is operated by volunteer attorneys familiar with the Washington state election process and are ready to answer any question a voter might have about making their voice heard in this critical election. 

“There is so much at stake on the ballot this year, and we are pulling out all of the stops to make sure Democrats in Washington win with record voter turnout in every race up and down the ballot,” said Tina Podlodowski, Chair of the Washington State Democratic Party. In Washington state, every day that ballot drop boxes are open is Election day we’re in this for the long run. I am extremely proud of our organizers and volunteers that have worked so hard since the August primary to make sure voters in Washington turn out the vote for Democratic values.”
