There are many ways to support Shelby's campaign: take your pick!

Deliver Yard Signs

We receive many requests for yard signs. We also need supporters with prime property for big 4′ x 8′ signs: residential or retail corners, fences on key roads, etc. If you can deliver yard signs, great. Or just pitch one in your own yard!

Knock on Doors

You aren’t knocking on just any door; you are given a list of addresses in a neighborhood for people who are likely voters. Often, you knock, no one answers, and you leave a door hanger. You get exercise and help get Shelby’s name in front of voters.

Drive Voters to the Polls

Drivers needed! This is incredibly helpful for folks who face transportation hurdles (long bus rides, no public transport that runs between residence & polling site, mobility issues) that might make them skip voting.
