Opinion: How you can help vital campaigns from the comfort of your living room

With five by-election campaigns, a mayoral election and the police commissioner elections spread all around the country, there’s a host of opportunities to get involved in a campaign near you.
Last Saturday we ran a series of Regional Action Days for many of these campaigns.  Thank you so much to all of you who came.  A huge amount of valuable work was done, and hopefully you had fun too!
There’s another Regional Action Day this Saturday, November 10th, to help our superb candidate, Jill Hope, in the Corby by-election.  Details are available at the pre-registration page here.  If you can come, please do register, it really helps with planning.
And you don’t need a special action day to help, these offices will welcome help any day, and any time.  Do give them a call.
Of course, travelling to one of these campaigns isn’t an option for everyone.  If so, you can still make an important contribution by helping with telephone canvassing.
You’ll need a Connect login.  If you don’t have one, ring the number of any of the campaigns below, and they can help sort that out.  You need a virtual phone bank (VPB) code for that particular campaign, given below.
For those of you who will be helping in this way, your help is enormously important.
And thank you.
