Get Reimbursed for Getting out the Vote!

If turnout is high, Democrats will win!

Thanks to the DC Democratic State Committee, the Ward One Democrats will reimburse DC residents up to $75 for a car rental or $25 for gas per day to go volunteer for Get Out the Vote for Congressional races in Virginia or Pennsylvania! 


There are tight Congressional races near DC that you can help with. Abigail Spanberger and Leslie Cockburn in Virginia can use the most volunteer help, while Jennifer Wexton is closer to DC, but is in the lead. And if you want to go a little further, there are some tight Pennsylvania races as well that can use more volunteers. Sign up below on the campaign websites!
