This November 3rd

This November 3rd we need to elect Nancy Dye to the State Senate.

To do so we’ll need your help! It’s not enough to just vote. We need to make sure conservatives turn out this November!

Door Knocking
People are friendly and you are able to make quality voter contacts. You can request Nancy Dye’s Campaign Office to make walk books for your local neighborhood. If you haven’t walked door to door before then request someone to go with you to show you how it’s done.

Phone Banking
It’s great for people who can’t go door knocking and you can make a lot more calls in one hour then you could doors in the same hour. To phone bank or door knock go down to Nancy Dye’s campaign office. It is located in the strip mall behind K-Mart and Red Lobster on Franklin Road at 3535 Franklin Road SW, A-2 Roanoke, VA 24014.  or call the Lx Fangonilo at (540) 904-2595.

Helping out on Election Day
We need help at the polling stations on election day. There are 32 precincts in the city. The polls are open from 6AM – 7PM. Some volunteers are doing all 13 hours. The other volunteers already signed up are doing 6 hour, 4 hour, 3 hour, or 2 hour shifts. Whatever you can do will be a significant help. 

Email me at johnbrillgop@gmail.com or call me at 540-815-1079 to help out on election day.
