- Volunteer at a phone bank or canvass: Face-to-face conversations with voters about why marriage matters for same-sex couples will be the difference between winning and losing on November 6th. Mainers United is talking with voters each day and there is no shortage of volunteer opportunities each week. Click here to see a list of volunteer opportunities and sign up for at least one shift now.
- Attend the rally next week: Marriage will officially be Question 1 on the Maine ballot this year and if we want marriage to pass, we need supporters to vote Yes on 1! Next Monday September 10th, Mainers United will launch the official "Yes on 1" campaign with a kick-off rally at Portland's City Hall at 1:00. Click here for more details about the rally.
- Host a house party: Mainers United has set a goal of organizing 100 house parties around the state between now and Election Day. They're already halfway to their goal but need your help to reach 100! They'll give you all the resources and support you need to host a successful party and you'll even be entered to win a weekend getaway in Ogunquit.
