Posted: October 27, 2012 at 5:53 am   /   by   /   comments (0)

With just over 10 day to go before the election, now is the time to volunteer in support of your convictions.
We are down to the wire for this all important election and this time we need to put a face on the Republican Party in this county. We are asking that you be that face for just a short time during early voting week.  We need your help!  Whether you are a Republican or Romney-Ryan volunteer, or one supporting another Republican candidate, we need you.

Even if you can only spare two hours, there are a variety of way you time can be put to good use.  The best way to get involved is to sign up our website at

Be sure to leave contact information, including email and mobile phone.

Phone Banking

Our phone banking is continuing at the Bartlett Victory Center at 18540 Office Park Dr. Montgomery Village, MD 20886.  For more information on helping, contact Office Director: Kari Snyder – [email protected] ~ (240) 780-2395

Early Voting

Next Saturday early voting begins, and a strong Republican presence is required at each of the five locations in Montgomery County.  Republican volunteers will be greeting voters outside each location.  Trained Poll Watchers will also be working with Board of Election staff inside the polling places.  Call 301-417-9256 for more information.

Our Early Voting presence provides two functions.

First we want to have a physical presence outside all five locations while voting is going on with signs and literature to greet voters.   Second we will be using trained poll watchers inside to locations. In some instances it will be necessary for volunteers to combine the two roles. Our visible external presence can help provide some deterrence to potential problems.   Without getting ahead of the training process, all volunteers will have the necessary documentation to allow them to go inside the polling places.

Super Saturday

Also next Saturday, the  Maryland Republican Party StrikeForce is coming Montgomery County to GOTV for Romney/Ryan, Dan Bongino, Ken Timmerman and Roscoe Bartlett + provide ballot education materials.  For the past month, each Saturday Republican volunteers from around the state have converged on a specific county to focus on supporting local efforts.

Today, on Saturday October 27 the kickoff will be at 18540 Office Park Dr. Montgomery Village, MD 20886 (Bartlett Victory Center).  After a kick off rally, volunteers will do door to door canvassing in Congressional District 6 and 8, and phone banking for Bartlett form his Victory Center and for Ken Timmerman form the Montgomery county Republican headquarters (15833 Crabbs Branch Way Rockville/Derwood).   Sign-up here:
