Preparing to maximize the impact of Disability Voters in House of Representatives races in 2018
1) Pick one or more districts to work in, or let us know if you are available for volunteer tasks as needed.
- Identify target races (see list below) — one or more in which you can try to have a meaningful impact. This should include your district if it is competitive. Also look for a district to which you can conveniently travel and/or in which you have contacts.
- To find who represents you or is located in an area that is near you or that you can get to, go to: 270towin.com/2018-house-election
- To see how competitive a district is considered to be, see if it is on this list, from Cook Political Report June 30, 2017. If it is not on this list, it is considered a safe seat for whichever party currently has it.
2) Let us know what districts you are interested in working in, or if you want to help and want projects, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 1-833-DIS-VOTE. We will get you the information we have on your district, or let you know what projects we need help with. We ok forward to working together.
3) Help us find likely allies. See below.
