Host a Five Weeks To Win Call Party 9/29-9/30
Thanks so much for hosting! We'll give you everything you need to have a successful Election Call Party. Here are a few important tips to help you sign up:
At the party we'll be hitting the phones, so you should choose your location accordingly. Your house is a great place, and a community center room can also work. (For legal reasons, please do NOT hold your event at a business or any location that charges a fee.) For a complete guide of legal considerations read through the
legal guidelines. Choose a space that is
quiet, with enough room to spread out, and cell phone reception. Think of whether your space has a good space to eat food--so guests can bring desserts to the party. If you have any questions about choosing a location or hosting overall, just email email@example.com.
Important instructions when choosing the maximum # of attendees: On average, about half of the people who sign up for an event, actually show up. In the "maximum # of attendees" question below, put double the number of people your location can accommodate. This will ensure that we get as many people at call parties this weekend as possible.
To get started, fill in your contact information below.

Important Legal Note: MoveOn.org Political Action is a political organization. Events organized in conjunction with MoveOn.org Political Action are considered partisan under the law. As a result, non-partisan not-for-profit organizations such as schools and libraries should not use staff time or resources to organize events with MoveOn.org Political Action. This could be seen as an in-kind contribution under the law, which could put the organization's tax status in jeopardy.
