Phone Banking is a wonderful opportunity to spend a few hours in the company of like-minded neighbors and friends, while reaching out personally, by phone, to fellow citizens informing them about candidates running for office, or important issues before Congress.
If you’ve never participated in Phone Banking before, no worries! Your host will share simple, easy to follow phone scripts, along with tips and tricks on how it’s done. Once you’ve completed a few calls you’ll join the chorus of other first-timers who proclaim, “Wow, this is easy and fun, and I feel good because I’m participating in my democracy!”.
Below is a list of Phone Banks hosted by Indivisible MoCo members. These are fun, friendly gatherings where you will work with other local volunteers making coordinated phone calls.

Note: Since Virginia has elections in November of 2017, upcoming Phone Bank efforts will be in support of VA Democratic candidates. Helping out with Virginia elections benefits us in several ways:
- there are several "flippable" districts in Northern Virginia that can turned blue with a shift of only a few hundred votes in favor of the Democratic candidate.
- In many instances our region (MD, VA & DC) shares common transportation systems, waterways, and regional authorities so helping elect Democratic candidates throughout the region has a very direct impact on Maryland.
- Finally, working on behalf of Virginia candidates gives us direct, real-life, useful experience as we prepare for Maryland elections in the fall of 2018.
