Voter Outreach & GOTV (Get Out the Vote!)

Local volunteers and supporters working with the Sunapee Dems turned out the vote for the General Elections in November. Activities included:

  • Visibility before and on Election Day and distributing signs

  • Advertising to support our candidates in the Kearsarge Shopper

  • GOTV letter to Sunapee voter

Sunapee voters helped to elect strong, effective Democratic leaders in 2022: re-elected Linda Tanner and elected Hope Damon to the NH House of Representatives, re-elected Cinde Warmington to NH Executive Council in District 2, and returned our federal delegation to Congress.

Volunteers are at the core of Sunapee Dems' communication and outreach with a newsletter, on Facebook @SunapeeDemocrats, with postcard campaigns, and by talking with voters. With your interest and skills, the Committee looks to expand its communication about our shared values, Democratic policies and priorities, and the work of our Democratic candidates and elected officials.
