This week’s big news is that Early Voting begins on October 24 and ends on November 4!!! The voting schedule is here for easy reference.
Since Early Voting begins on Monday, we all need to work together to reach voters. There are a lot of opportunities to contribute in the upcoming week – we’ve highlighted a few of them here. Also, be sure to check the calendar on this page as new events are added frequently.
Monday–Tuesday-Wednesday–Thursday-Saturday: Clinton – Kaine Phone Bank at CCDP Headquarters. We will be calling for Hillary and will feature a different Collin County candidate each week!

From our friends at the Collin County Democratic Party:
We Need Your Help!
Did you know that Texas is not a red state, we are a nonvoting state?
We can turn blue if voters are contacted and know how much their votes matter.
Voter Contact = Voter Turnout
Here’s how you can make an impact:
- call voters to get them to the polls, vote early and vote straight ticket
- knock on doors with the same message
- be a Poll Greeter at a polling place for Early Voting and Election Day
- be a Poll Watcher observing the voting process inside the polls
- help out in the office to answer calls from voters during voting hours
YOU! can make a difference in this election!
