DFL48 | Restoring Common Sense & Minnesota Values

* Volunteer *



All Hands on Deck GOTV

It’s Get Out the Vote time! We need your help to talk with voters to confirm their support of our candidates, as well as the fact that they’ll be going to vote on Election Day, November 6.

If you can volunteer time to make calls or doorknock, you’ll be helping your local candidates Laurie McKendry for State Senate, Yvonne Selcer for House District 48A and Tori Hill for House District 48B have a stronger chance at becoming your next elected representatives.

We’ve seen how badly things have gone in the State Legislature, the total lack of focus on the “jobs, jobs, jobs” promise Republicans made in 2010 followed by their attempts to insert discrimination into our state Constitution with two divisive amendments that we’re finding out were placed there not for “family values”, but to assure a stronger Republican turn-out on Election Day.

Help thwart their efforts by volunteering.  Sign up now for shifts of phoning or door knocking.

Door knocking will be done out of a location in our Senate District.  Phone calling will be done from the CD3 DFL Coordinated Campaign office, 12324 Wayzata Blvd, Unit C, Minnetonka, MN 55343.  This is located across 394 from Ridgedale in the strip center with Sports Authority.

Contact Laura Nevitt to schedule your shifts or call her at 612.708.4644.

Here are ways you can make a difference

DFL 48  is a volunteer organization, and the more volunteers, the better. We need help with: website, newsletter/publicity and letter writing, Democratic Visions production and promotion, volunteer support, and organizing events and forums. If you are interested in helping, contact us by emailing .

All DFL Writers

One of the best assets we have is our letter-to-the-editor writers. We do more than complain- we Democrats can write about issues.

Our candidates need our help in getting their message out. Letters are free publicity for our candidates and a way to to push back against the Republican spin machines. If you would like some ideas or help on your next letter, email  .
