Start Making a Difference Now

While the news out of Washington continues to be ominous, there’s so much you can do right now to make a difference in Arlington. Help us elect candidates who will fight for better jobs, wages and training, protect the environment and promote clean energy, and support schools and teachers. With the Trump Administration failing to lead in these critical areas, we must ensure that state and local governments step up.

Please help us with one or more of the following activities:

Join the Arlington Democrats volunteers to stay involved

Getting connected with your precinct captain is the best way to find out about local canvassing and other volunteer opportunities. Your precinct captain can also help connect you to opportunities within Arlington Democrats that match your skills and interests.

Go “Beyond Arlington”

Join the Beyond Arlington Program and help win some House of Delegate seats for the Democrats.  We are phone banking every Tuesday and Thursday at Arlington Democrats Headquarters from 6:00-8:30 pm, you can RSVP here.  We are also canvassing every weekend for our adopted candidates in Prince William, Loudoun and Fairfax.  Our Adopt-a-District form is here.

These are all amazing candidates in very winnable districts.  Direct voter contact through phone banking and canvassing is crucial to our success.  Most importantly, these activities are easy and fun.  Don’t wait to get started, just sign up today!  Other questions can be directed to Steve Baker at

Staff Arlington Festivals and Farmers Markets

The Arlington Democrats have a presence at local festivals and farmers markets throughout the year.  Many of these events take place in the lead up to the general election in November. We need many volunteers at these events to register voters and provide critical information about the upcoming election.

Poll Greeting

Poll greeters are essential to a Democratic win across the ballot!  Why? By law, local candidates are not identified by Party affiliation on the ballot.  We must ensure that all Democrats who show up to vote for state candidates know about our terrific County Board and School Board candidates.  Poll greeters perform this critical function by providing important candidate information to voters.
