Important info from the Terry Gipson for State Senate Campaign – help out if you can!!

Information from the Terry Gipson Campaign:

Here’s an updated Virtual Phonebank list for you!

This is a *VERY* close campaign, and your extra time at home or with friends REALLY COUNTS in winning this fight. If you find a few minutes or an hour here or there, please call some voters and tell them why they should vote for Terry!

You’re always welcome in the office too, so please just come on in between 10AM and 7:30PM daily or give us a call! Bring a laptop if you can!

We now have a way for everyone who supports Terry to phonebank for him remotely! You can access it relatively simply by creating a login for yourself using your email address and a password of your choosing.

TO ACCESS THE VIRTUAL PHONEBANK LIST:

1) Go to https://www.openvpb.com/vpb_bycode/007AF1L-9282

2) Create an action ID for yourself using your email address if you don’t already have one, and sign in (looks like this:)

gipson

 

 

3) Enter code 007AF1L-9282 if required.

The list is available to be called from 10AM to 8:30PM daily. For anyone 75 or over, we ask that you not call them after 7:30pm. If you’re calling after then and they come up in your list, please just mark them not home and skip to the next voter.

Attached is the phone script and a list of talking points in case you don’t already have them.

You’ll notice that the electronic list has only the question of support for Terry; if you find someone who you think would be willing to volunteer, or who wants a lawn sign, just let me know their contact info by email or text.

Thank you so much for helping us get Terry back in the senate where he belongs!
