Campaign Opportunities

This post will include any known upcoming campaign opportunities for you to get involved with. Remember, you will need to complete 5 hours before the election.

***Campaign Volunteer Log***
(print out and bring with you to record your hours)


Upcoming Democratic Candidates Opportunities (ongoing)
  1. If you're in Saint Louis, Kansas City, or Columbia, sign up for a shift at a Hillary for Missouri phone bank and bring a friend (or three) with you. You can sign up for phone banks by going to www.HillaryClinton.com/events and putting in your city. I've also provided a contact list for our offices below.
  2. If you're not able to make it to a campaign office, use our virtual phone bank system to make some calls from home: https://www.openvpb.com/vpb_bycode/1D3902O-4613 (code is 1D3902O-4613). It's a very user-friendly system and we instantly get the results, so it's incredibly helpful. This link will last through November 1st, at which point I will send out a new link.
  3. If calling people isn't your thing, grab a walk packet and knock on some doors with the Koster campaign! You can find the closest office by going to http://chriskoster.com/join/.
My ask to you is to please complete at least one shift of one of the above options before (or on) Election Day, and to recruit two other people to join you. 

As we near Election Day, here are a couple things to note:
  • Any voter who needs a ride to vote can call 1-844-MO1-VOTE. The people monitoring this line will gather the voter's name, phone number, address, and requested time of pickup.
  • If you have questions about voting (ID requirements, hours, absentee voting, etc), please go to www.iwillvote.com
Finally, as promised, a list of upcoming phone banks, as well as contact info and hours for our offices:

Upcoming Phone Banks
Reminder: We make phone calls every day. This is by no means a complete list of opportunities. Please check out www.hillaryclinton.com/events for a complete list.

Kevin Corlew (10/27)
Could you let your students know we have an event planned tomorrow night (October 27) to address and stuff envelopes. We will meet from 5:30-8:30 at the Clay County Republican Headquarters -8002 North Oak Trafficway KCMO 64118. Please have your students send me an email to RSVP. Due to space limitations I can only take 25-30 participants. ashley@kevincorlew.com

Also, can you announce that our November 1st phone bank is full, but 
we do have two Super Saturdays left. October 29 and November 1st we will have two shifts each day the first being from 9:30-12:30 and the second from 1:30-4:30. We will meet at the Line Creek Community Center 5940 NW Waukomis Dr, Kansas City, MO 64151. We will be doing a "lit drop" which is going door-to-door and leaving out campaign literature in doors. 

Kevin Corlew (upcoming)

Unfortunately all of my slots for phone banking are full tonight (Oct. 18). We do have one more phone bank on November 1st and two Super Saturdays (October 29th and November 5th)-Super Saturdays are a quick way to get in your hours. You will be with a group of people and putting our campaign pieces on doors of our constituents. Please email Ashley Burke (ashley@kevincorlew.com) for more information and to RSVP.

Canvassing for Mark Ellebracht (Oct. 21)
Mark Ellebracht’s campaign (Democrat running for State Representative) will be hosting a canvass/lit drop on Friday – since there is no school, I thought it’d be a good opportunity for students. We’re asking our volunteers to meet at the UAW hall at 10am. It’s located at 8040 US 69 Hwy, Pleasant Valley, MO. Just as an FYI, the UAW does not permit foreign cars in their lot, so anyone with a foreign car would need to park in the bank parking lot next door.

Students will be grouped in teams of 3-4 with UAW members so that students aren’t going out by themselves. Since it’s a lit drop, we aren’t expecting students to talk to voters so it should be really easy for them.

If you have any students that would be interested, please have them email me so I know how many students to expect. Thanks!





Phone Banking for Kevin Corlew (Oct. 4)
We have another call night on October 4 at Olsson and Associates, the address is 1251 Northwest Briarcliff Parkway suite 50, Kansas City, MO 64116, from 6:00-8:30. There will be pizza again! 

And finally, the first Super Saturday of the general election will be October 8We will meet at the Line Creek Community Center, 5940 NW Waukomis Dr. Kansas City, Mo 6415 and canvass neighborhoods doing lit drops. We will have two shifts: 9:30-12:30 and then 1:30-4:30. We can provide lunch after/before each shift. 


Have them RSVP to me again so we can get a pizza count.

Gladfest Parade (Saturday, Oct. 1)

Kevin Corlew
We will be in the Gladfest parade with coming Saturday (October 1) if they are looking for a couple more volunteer hours and would like to walk with us. We have candy, and frisbees to hand out to the crowd. We will be lining up between 9:00-9:30am at Shady Lane and North Oak in Gladstone. They should be done by 12:00 at the very latest. We ask that they wear a dark grey, red, white, or blue shirt (although we may have extra campaign shirts they can wear for the morning). Please have anyone interested email (ashley@kevincorlew.com) to RSVP so we can get a head count. Thanks again!

There is a parade this Saturday, and we’d love to have students help us out if anyone is interested and available. Here are some details about the parade that you might be able to share with your class:

Date:                                   Saturday, September 24, 2016
Parade Line-Up:                Begins at 9:30am (Kansas Ave between Westowne Office complex and Heritage Middle School)
Parade Start:                     11:00am (Kansas Ave and Fairview)

The Ellebracht volunteers will be in section 42. We won’t have shirts or stickers that say “Mark Ellebracht” but we will have signs, handouts, and probably candy. Some volunteers will be wearing United Autoworkers (UAW) shirts to show union support for Mark and there may be extras, but the most important thing is to have a large presence of people to carry large signs.

I will try to be there around 9:30am, but volunteers probably won’t need to be in line with us until 10:30am (10:45am at the latest) – I plan to brief the entire group 10-15 minutes before the parade starts.

Ongoing Democratic Canvassing for Jason Kander and Chris Koster

Clay County Democratic HQ
Antioch Annex
5416 NE Antioch Rd
Kansas City, MO  64119
(next to Bojo’s in the strip mall across from the Antioch Shopping Center)

Canvassing is the best way to get voters engaged in this election cycle. It’s an easy and fun way to meet people, make a difference, be a part of this election cycle, and learn about how campaigns function!

Students can earn 5 hours by finishing two packets with a partner, or one packet alone.  This would equal approx. 50 total doors knocked.  In other words, one packet contains approx. 50 doors, which you can split with a partner or complete by yourself. You must complete the packet(s) given to you in order to receive credit.

Available times are Saturday at 10:00, and Sunday at 4:00.  Additional times are available if necessary, by calling David at 240-994-0207. The office is open from 9:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m., except for Friday and Saturday, when it closes at 6:00 p.m. or later by appointment. (You can also talk to Maddi VanDyne at North)


We always have snacks and plenty of water on hand for our volunteers, as we value our canvassers, and appreciate all of their efforts in our campaign.  We would love to see you!!!

Tuesday, September 20th: Phone Banking for Kevin Corlew


Just wanted to let you know we have a phone bank tomorrow night if any of your students are interested. Below are the details: 

Tuesday, September 20, 2016 from 6:00 to 8:30 PM at Re/Max Results (7020 NW 83 Terrace, Kansas City, MO 64152). We will have pizza and snacks.


We ask that they let us know so that we have enough pizza. They can email me at ashley@kevincorlew.com if they are interested. We also ask that they please bring a smart phone, tablet, or computer as our call lists are through an online database. 

Phones for Hillary
Every Wednesday from 2:00-6:00pm at the Clay County Democratic HQ (on Antioch). Must bring your own phone.

Kevin Corlew, Republican candidate for MO House District 14


We have a lot of opportunities for the kid's to volunteer below are some upcoming dates- 

October 1st: 9:30-11:00ish walk/handout candy at the Gladdest parade
October 8th, 29th, and November 5: all day Super Saturday - canvas neighborhoods/ literature drop 
October 18th and November 1st: Call Nights- we will do phone banking to reach out to our supporters asking them to remember to vote 

Those are our solid dates for events coming up, but we are also ALWAYS looking for people to knock doors with Kevin. During the week in the evenings and on the weekends. Monday through Friday we usually start about 5:00 and go until dark which is about 8:00 right now. Saturday's 9:30-5:00 and Sunday's depend on the time of the Chiefs' games as we don't want to bother people while the game is on. 


If there are students that aren't able to do any of the scheduled events and aren't comfortable knocking doors with Kevin we also can have them do literature drops which is basically canvassing neighborhoods and putting our push pieces in people's doors. They can do this at their own convenience.
