2011 Campaign Volunteer Opportunities
The low amount of attention to the 2011 elections makes volunteers harder to recruit, so your help with any of our campaigns is crucial and much appreciated! Here is a list of volunteer opportunities and points of contact with campaigns in the 8th District (more coming soon). High school students can do their service hours with any of these campaigns or committees.
