Welcome to Common Cause's Action Team

Sign up for a shift to monitor social media, make calls, or text in key states to connect them directly and make sure they’re ready to take part in the 2020 election. You can volunteer from anywhere, and we’ll follow up and make sure you have everything you need to contact voters once you sign up.
In order to volunteer, folks will need access to a computer or tablet to log in to our remote textbanking + phonebanking systems as well as a phone to actually make the calls.
