DFL48 | Restoring Common Sense Minnesota Values

* Volunteer *



No Beefing Allowed

diverse-handsAlthough Minnesota and SD48 had higher voter turn out in 2014 than the country as a whole, it still wasn’t at a high enough rate to really shout about.

So, if you see things not going the way you’d like to see our country go (and that’s a strong possibility at the federal level than it’s been since the 1990s) and you were doing everything but voting last November.  Sorry, you chose not to participate. No beefing allowed.

You have to show up to make change happen.  You chose not to.  You can’t win a game if you don’t play.  You can’t learn a new skill unless you practice it.  You can’t elect people who support and will work toward your beliefs and values unless you vote to put them in office.

In the lead up to 2016, don’t make the same mistake. Get involved. The political process runs on the willingness of people who believe in the direction of the party they identify with to work to get their candidates elected.  Yep, it’s all individuals giving of what free time they have to make people’s lives better.

Want to make life better for you and your friends?  It’s like anything else.  Get involved, find out how you can help and then add your shoulder to the wheel of progress.

Here’s a link to where you can volunteer. We hope you’ll choose to engage, make change happen and move Eden Prairie and Minnetonka forward.

Thank you volunteers!

DFLers –

Thank you so much for all of your hard work this election cycle. Our work began last year with the “Turn On the Off Year” program. This effort provided an opportunity for DFLers to step up and take a leadership role in engaging voters in the 2014 election.

This election cycle we had 33 offices across the state, the most effective get out the vote effort ever and armies of door knockers and callers.

We couldn’t have done all the work we did without you, our DFL volunteers and donors.

As we move forward I urge you to stay involved with your local DFL. In two years we’ll need to defend the DFL majority in the Minnesota Senate, retake the DFL majority in the Minnesota House and elect a Democratic president.

But after what I’ve seen this election year I know we can do it. I’ve never been more proud to be your DFL Chairman and I’ve never been so excited to see what our elected officials will accomplish for all Minnesotans.

Ken Martin
Chairman, Minnesota DFL

MN-DFL-BOothIt’s already July and the 2014 Minnesota State Fair is just around the corner – August 21 through Labor Day, September 1. Like all DFL activities, our State Fair booth needs spirited volunteers to make it great.

We’re celebrating the 70th Anniversary of our Party’s founding, so this will be a great year at the Fair.  There are many things that you can do to help out, including:

  • Greeting visitors
  • Talking about important issues and
  • Registering new voters.

The schedule at the DFL State Fair booth is divided into 3 four-hour blocks. We need volunteers who are willing to work for a full four-hour period. Times available to volunteer include:

  • 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM
  • 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM
  • 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM

It’s a way to spread the word about our Party and our candidates while having fun and enjoying a day at the #1 State Fair in the USA! We’ll even give you a free ticket for each day you work in the DFL booth, when you attend volunteer training at 10:00 AM on Saturday, August 9.

To sign up, please visit DFL.org/statefair/ http://www.dfl.org/statefair or call Morgan Hinton at 651-251-6367.

We’ll see you at the Fair!
