WANTED: Phone Volunteers
The DCDP needs phone volunteers who can call designated lists of potential Precinct Chairs with strong Democratic voting histories. So far, this method has proven successful in recruiting new Precinct Chairs, but we still have lots of precinct chair vacancies to fill.

If you are willing to help us make calls, at the DCDP office or at home, please call DCDP Operations Director Carmen Ayala at the DCDP office at 214-821-8331. Let us know when you are available, and we will have your list ready for you.
