DPH Membership Committee Needs YOUR Help

Membership Committee Update

The DPH Membership Committee is off and running and they have two projects that need your kokua:

The first is Poll Watching for the 2018 General Election on Tuesday, November 6.

Poll Watching serves 2 purposes:
1.    Making sure we find out which Democrats have not voted so DPH can contact them and encourage our fellow Democrats to get to the polls.
2.    Ensure that ALL voters get to cast their vote.

To do this program correctly we will need over 600 volunteers across the state broken into two different groups. First group of volunteers are the Poll Watchers, who will go into the polls and during breaks in the action look at the Poll Books to see which Democrats have not voted. They then will leave the Polling location and call that information in to your designated phone banking HQ. The second group of volunteers are the Phone Bankers who will call our fellow Democrats to encourage them to get to the polls before they close.

The Membership Committee will provide training prior to the General Election, phone bankers do not need to attend the training.

The second program is for our O‘ahu members:
For the first time in several decades the Democratic Party of Hawai‘i will have a booth at the 2018 Senior Fair. The Senior Fair is September 21, 22 & 23, 2018 and will be held at the Blaisdell Exhibition Hall from 8:30 am4:30 pm each day. There will be 300 Exhibit booths covering Travel, Health, Finances, Mortgages & Real Estate, Beauty, Nutrition, Flu Shots, Games, Contests, Prizes, Giveaways, Politics and MUCH, MUCH more!

We are looking for volunteers to come help staff the booth! We will look to sign-up new members and let the general public know what we do as a party.

If you are available on any of the days, September 21, 22 & 23 (Friday – Sunday), please fill out this Google form and let us know which shift(s) you can cover and someone from the DPH Membership Committee will contact you to confirm your schedule.

To pay for both of these programs and future tabling actions the Membership Committee has set a fundraising goal of $5,000 since these are unbudgeted programs. The money will be used to cover the booth rental fee for the Senior Fair, printing of DPH materials, signage to be used at the Senior Fair and future tabling activities, and possibly a give-a-ways. To donate to help cover the costs of these programs click here or send a check made out to the Democratic Party of Hawaii with Membership Committee in the memo section and mail it to 627 South Street, #105, Honolulu, HI  96813.
