Please email our DTC Volunteer Coordinator Eli Debenham at  if you would like to help out any of the candidates.

Here is how you can help our candidates:

1. Weekday Phone Banking
In September, we will be open Monday, Wednesday and Thursday nights 6:00-8:00pm, and some afternoons (excluding the Jewish holidays and Halloween), for phone banking to Westport voters.

Our headquarters is the official Hillary For America Westport headquarters. Weekly phone banking for Hillary in Westport starts Tuesday, August 23, 6-8pm and will take place every Tuesday evening until Election Day. Please email George Kane at to volunteer and for further details.

Bring a friend or family member!

2. Canvas Door to Door
Join canvassing drives and knock on doors.  It’s a great way to learn about your community, meet neighbors and help the cause.

3. Write Letters
Thoughtful letters to the local newspapers and blogs in support of our candidates are crucial as well as commenting online where appropriate.  Please contact us if you need help finding resources.

4. Yard Signs/Bumper Stickers
Will be obtained from DTC Headquarters.  Please contact us if you can help put out signs or even better if you have, or know a willing friend with, a well-trafficked residence.  Put a sticker (we hope to have them in soon) on your bumper and show your support!

5. Word of Mouth
Getting up to speed on the issues and our candidates’ positions and communicating with your friends and neighbors is extremely helpful.  In today’s environment, sending out personalized emails to your friends supporting candidates is very effective.  Contact us for talking points or refer to candidate’s website (links are listed on our DTC website:

6. Social Media
Please LIKE our DTC Facebook page –  Search Facebook or Click HERE for Westport Democratic Town Committee and LIKE all our candidates’ pages as well.  When you see posts by the DTC and Candidates, it is very helpful to 1) LIKE them, 2) POST them on your own page by SHARING the post and 3) COMMENTING on posts.   Doing ALL these actions will help their impact immensely.

7. Contributions
