We need conservatives running for office and getting elected in every level of government. Please consider running for local, state, or even federal level office. If you don't want to be a candidate, volunteer to help one. If you need more information on how to get started, please contact us.
Please consider being a driver to help get people to the polls. Check on the people in your life that may not be able to get out to vote and ask if they would like a ride. Call your local churches and clubs to see if they have any members that need assistance.
It's vital to the election process that we have volunteers to work the polls. Poll workers are there to help the process not only run smoothly but help prevent voter fraud. We need more conservatives at the polling locations. Click here to find out how to volunteer.
Our elected officials represent us, but it's our responsibility to stay current on what's happening on the local, state, and federal level. Each one has contact information online and welcome letters, emails, phone calls, and personal visits. If you aren't sure who your state and federal officials are, click on this link and type in your address to find out.
