How to volunteer for change. We need you.

Energy wins elections. We have more of it. Let's show it in the community in this final kick of the campaign. Here are several opportunities to volunteer. If one or more strikes your fancy, email me at bitown1@gmail.com or campaign@billytownsend.com or Facebook message me; and we'll bring this thing home together.

Work a precinct -- either on Early Voting or Election Day: Early voting starts Monday, 10/24. It runs through Nov. 6. Wherever you are, there's a time and location nearby. You'll be shocked how many votes you can win just by handing out literature as people walk in. The weekends of the 29th and 30th -- and 5th and 6th -- are particularly important days for early voting.

Walk with us in the Bartow Halloween Parade, Thursday, Oct. 27: This will be lots of fun. We have to be in line at the Bartow parade route at 3 p.m. The parade begins at 4 p.m.

Lake Wales Pioneer Days, Sat., Oct 29 - Sunday, Oct. 30: -- Take a shift staffing our booth. Hours are 9 to 5 Saturday. And 11 to 4 on Sunday. Even a couple of hours would help.

Work our Lakeland First Friday booth, Nov. 5

Sign waving, on weekends or Nov. 7 -- This will be developing; and we'll provide precise dates and locations.

Deliver Election Day campaigns signs to precincts on Nov. 7 -- We need as many volunteer drivers as possible. This is a big job.
