As you all know, the Federal Election will be held on SATURDAY, 21st AUGUST – ONLY FIVE WEEKS AWAY!!!
The following Greens candidates are standing in Newcastle/Lake Macquarie seats:
Newcastle: MICHAEL OSBORNE
Shortland: PHILLIPA PARSONS
Charlton: LYNDEN JACOBI
We hope to have a Greens campaign office up and running in the Newcastle CBD, or nearby, within a week – and to be able to begin phoning all our members and supporters soon after, seeking their help with letterboxing, displaying a candidate poster at home, handing out how-to-votes at a local polling booth on Election Day, etc.
With such a short campaign time, it is a very big task for our relatively small team to contact all our potential helpers, to get our leaflets distributed, and to try to cover every polling booth in the three electorates. There is no doubt that the more people we have handing out our How-to-Votes, the greater the chances of getting our No. 1 Senate candidate, Lee Rhiannon, elected to the Senate.
CAN YOU HELP BY VOLUNTEERING TO:
- staff the office for a few hours, or 1 or more days, for the next four weeks?
- phone other members/supporters and record their assistance on our computerised database (you’d be shown how to do this)?
- letterbox in a designated local area?
- go on a polling booth on Election Day?
- display a candidate’s poster in your home or shop, if in a prominent position?
- make a donation to our Campaign Fund?
OR, help in other ways …..
It is very important that you are listed on our Members or Supporters database, otherwise you might not be contacted. To add your name and contact details, please advise us as soon as possible.
