VBM Phone bank

 Manatee Democrats are contacting voters  who have received, but not yet sent in, their Mail In Ballots.  We want to ensure that everyone returns their ballot. You can call from anywhere. You can stop and start as convenient for you.  Contact our office for more information. 

Polls volunteers

Greet voters  on behalf of the Democratic Party at the polls during Early Voting days and Election Day. 

Housing for Field Organizers

 Host homes are needed for Field Organizers (FO) for the Congressional District #16 race (Buchanan v. ?).  Person needs a bedroom, bathroom and laundry facilities. They will spend little time there.  All parts of the County are needed 

Join a Precinct Team

Help get Democrats elected by volunteering in your home precinct. You might help with a house party, call voters, send out postcards, contact candidates,  help people register or Vote By Mail. 

Work for a Candidate

Candidates can't do this alone. They need people to:

  • Follow on Facebook and Twitter and share posts
  • Join the phone team making calls from home
  • Join the canvassing team
  • Host a gathering as an introduction to the neighborhood

Join a Club

 Manatee Democratic Clubs and Caucuses meet monthly and take on a wide range of initiatives. Find meeting time and location on our Events Calendar or contact a group that interests you.


 Fundraising allows us to have a presence in Manatee and support our local candidates.  Help with established events or start your own.  Contact Lucy Lapides, DEC Fundraising Chair, lucylap@tampabay.rr.com
