You're on the team! Here's how to get started:

We're so excited that you've volunteered to help Get Out The Vote. We're building a blue wave that's going to win critical races from coast to coast.

There was such an enormous response to Senator Merkley's call-to-action that we've partnered with MoveOn to power up our text-to-voters GOTV program. They've added a lot more capacity to take on so many more volunteers.

To get started, visit MoveOn's Text Team site here and do a quick 10-minute training.

You'll learn how it works, what our goals are, and the two systems you'll use. (One is called "Slack", used for communicating with your fellow volunteers and the MoveOn support team. The other is called "Spoke", used to send texts to voters.)

It's fun, it's easy, and it makes a HUGE difference. Research shows that 90% of texts are read within five minutes of being sent – which makes it a critical way for us to reach voters, especially the 74% of under-30 voters who say they're not sure they plan to vote this year. Our research demonstrates that, with your participation, this program could generate a half million additional voters nationwide!

A few things to know:
