The Harris County Democratic Party is in full swing with the upcoming Primary election, as voting starts in less than a week. Our main focus at the moment is following up with all of our Democratic neighbors who’ve been mailed an application to Vote By Mail (VBM) by the Texas Democratic Party. 

There are 135,000 voters mailed a VBM application who need to be followed up with. We would like to thank our amazing volunteers, candidates, Clubs and Organizations, and Precinct Chairs who’ve helped engage these voters so far!

We still have to speak with voters who haven’t been contacted to and need your help to call them. Choose a phonebank to attend and bring your laptop, cell phone, and family or friends with you when you come by and have fun at the Party!
