Chris Daggett Campaign 15 Ways To Help

The Chris Daggett Campaign announced a new page to provider volunteers with ways to help get involved int the campaign. The is a wide variety of ways to help from work at campaign headquarters to cyber volunteering. The announcement came alongside the Campaign’s announcement of a Virtual Town Hall planned for Monday, Aug 31 from 7:30 – 8pm with Chris.

The list is below and I will be working on ways to help organize volunteers, such as creating web forms for people to sign up for various tasks, schedule events, volunteer interviews and even parties. I’ll beginning working on these forms and probably create a new web site. Until then, only you have the power to change NJ and you can get started by picking an item from the list below.

Full List of of Ways to Help

Comprehensive list of volunteer jobs and duties:

Phone banking: Call supporters, or unaffiliated voters to let them know that Chris Daggett is running and discuss the major issues facing New Jersey.

Canvassing: This is either a door-to-door canvassing drive or a public space canvass in a highly trafficked area. The door-to-door campaign will be focused primarily on voter targeting, get-out-the-vote (GOTV) efforts, and issue conversations. The public space canvass will generally be people handing out brochures at local events, train stations, coffee houses, etc. in our targeted areas.

Host a party: These social get-togethers will either be introductions to the campaign or fundraisers. These meetings are designed to drive support on the ground. This is a great way to get people involved and to keep them informed.

Volunteer interviews: We are looking for volunteers to conduct video/text interviews with people around the state to discuss the major issues they are facing in their everyday lives.

Central campaign assistants: There are plenty of opportunities for volunteers within the following central campaign areas: Advance Team, Web Team, Policy Team, Writing/Communications Team, and Volunteer Coordination Team. These assignments will include researching, project management, writing, and communications. If you are interested, please feel free to email

Blogging: We have set up a new blogging site for people to post about why this campaign is important to them. You can send a blog to the campaign and we will post it for you at Also, we want to make sure there is a constant presence on the web so any comments you can post on other websites are greatly appreciated. Some common websites where we need comments are politickernj,,, and other NJ issue based websites.

Facebook/Myspace: We want to keep a strong presence on social networking sites, so we are asking volunteers to send out messages to all of their friends via Facebook about why they are supporting Chris Daggett. They have already started to form fan pages. We want to keep feeding this system. if you would like to become a fan, click here.

Database research: This allows us to keep an ever-growing database up to date with individuals from all walks of life throughout the state. To date it has been primarily contact info mining however, we hve some new opportunities with regards to voter targeting if you are interested.

GOTV: This will take place in the final weeks of the campaign. We will be trying to get all of our volunteers out in force to get people to go to the polls. This will be done in the old fashioned way of organizing transportation for individuals as well as more modern ways of blasting emails to friends and supporters.

Coordinate Campus Outreach: We are looking for highly motivated students to coordinate their universities. These people will be hosting information sessions, campaign get together, and general volunteer activities throughout their respective campuses.

Editorialists: Volunteers who have an interest in writing are encouraged to write letters to the editor and opinion columns for not only the big dailies (i.e. Star Ledger, Courier, Times, Asbury Park Press, Philadelphia Inquirer) but also for the local weeklies (the recorder group of newspapers).

Main Office Staffing: We will need volunteers who can staff the office. These people will work at reception, do mailings, research, any other jobs that need to be done out of the central campaign. This is a great opportunity to gain some campaign experience and to see the inner workings of the most successful independent campaign in state history.
