GO Team Overview
Join The Tracy GO TEam
What is the GO Team?
Our Grassroots Organizing (GO) Team is composed of volunteers who are registered with and represent the Democratic party in their own communities. GO Team members reach out to fellow Democrats and likely Democratic voters as friends and neighbors, offering valuable information and the personal encouragement to vote and get involved. Our program of voter contact enables volunteers to maximize their impact and it doesn’t require a huge time commitment.
What are the goals of the GO Team?
Electing Democrats by maximizing turnout and down-ballot voting. Promoting the candidates, Democratic Party, positions. Inviting involvement in the Party, events, and clubs.
How do I get started?
Sign up on this page and we will contact you to discuss volunteer options and determine a best fit for you. Once you are assigned a role, we'll provide training necessary to ensure successful volunteer experience for you.
What would I be doing?
The backbone of the GO Team are the Precinct Leaders who walk and call voters in their home precinct/neighborhood. In a non election year, they talk with voters one-on-one about issues of concern to them, answer questions and register and encourage voters to vote. During an election, Precinct Leaders carry with them the voter guide that lists all of the endorsed Democrats.
Precinct Leaders are supported by Community Coordinators who organize our community by zip code and by a team of data volunteers to ensure a successful voter contact.
How does this differ from volunteering with a campaign?
Campaigns also send volunteers into precincts – the key difference is they are working to get out the vote for their candidate/initiative while GO Team volunteers are working to get out the vote for the full slate of candidates and initiatives.
Can I still volunteer for my favorite candidate(s)?
Of course! Candidates often begin months or weeks before the GO Team does and will appreciate your help.
What if I prefer a candidate who was not endorsed?
If they are a Democrat, feel free to volunteer for them in precincts other than your GO Team precinct. It is important that you state you are representative of the campaign instead of the Party. If they are not a Democrat, be mindful of the SJCDP policy on endorsing non-Democrats.
