Real change happens at the ballot box, and door knocking has always been an integral part of every Democratic win, especially every upset we saw in 2017. Please consider joining a neighborhood canvass to bring change that matters to St. Mary's County. No experience is necessary; We will train you before we start and we’ll be going out in pairs so you will not be on your own. What better time to gain canvassing experience so we can be prepared to help our candidates win this fall?
