Notes from the Field

Student Voter Day Wrap-up!

November 1, 2019

On Tuesday, we hosted Student Voter Day at six different campuses across the state. Through snowstorm after snowstorm, in Missoula, Bozeman, Billings, Helena, and Havre, we helped almost 200 young people across the state make a #PlanToVote and handed out upwards of 800 of voter guides — ensuring that students had the opportunity to check out the issues that matter to young people. We chatted with young folks about the upcoming Census, and had tons of students practice filling it out on our new whiteboards. Check out all the highlights on our Forward Montana & Forward Montana Foundation Instagram.

Our field teams are hitting the GOTV hard — making thousands of calls across the state to young Montanans making sure they have a plan to vote. So far we’ve made almost 8,000 calls and have contacted every single young voter in Helena (literally every single one)!

We’re FIVE days away! Our teams will be calling, texting, hosting all the call nights, and distributing all the voter guides. Feel free to reach out to your local Field Manager for volunteer opportunities, to pick up some voter guides, or if you have any questions concerning the upcoming election!
