Thanks for visiting our events page!

If you've never taken the plunge to get involved in political action, we encourage you to get to know us by attending a meeting. We are a growing local party, but we need more people like you to step up and share your perspective. We are building teams of people to tackle projects like data entry and analytics, voter registration, special events, social media and content management, and candidate support and canvassing.

Kristy & Dave's House in Crystal Lake, IL

Data Management Team Meeting

Join us for data management and data syncing activities - new volunteers are welcome!  We'll continue with data syncing activities and election-related data analysis.

RSVP if you are able to come so that we can get your logins to the two systems established in time for your arrival.  Bring a laptop if you have one. The first session is usually slow going as we complete setup in both systems and get you acclimated to the tasks.

Note: For those of you willing to work on data entry remotely, we'll need to work together for a few sessions and then we can pursue remote assistance.
