My name is Brody Robbins, and up until very recently I was a student at the University of Idaho. While at university, I studied English and political science. In addition, I served as the president of the U of I chapter of the Young Democrats Club and as the membership chair for the Idaho Chapter of the College Democrats of America. In the fall of 2021, the Idaho Democratic Party hired me as a field-fellow assigned to work in various counties, including Nez Perce, Latah, and Kootenai. Growing up in Kootenai County, it was incredibly gratifying to work in North Idaho with people who want to help improve our shared community. I enjoyed the process of campaigning for like-minded candidates willing to fight for a brighter future for Idaho.
Now, I have been rehired for the 2022 campaign and I am looking forward to reengaging with those same volunteers and, hopefully, new ones. Through door-to-door canvassing, phone banking, and voter registration drives, I hope to continue to work towards identifying and mobilizing our voters. I also look forward to spreading awareness of the various issues affecting our community and engaging with the candidates who might help solve them. With the continued support of the Central Committee and volunteer community, I have no doubt that we will continue to develop a more expansive political apparatus. One that will not only benefit this election cycle, but future elections as well.
If you are interested in volunteer opportunities in Kootenai County, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also call or text me at 208 704 2181.
Text and phone banking is a form of canvassing. The purpose is to connect our volunteers with potential voters who are likely to share our Democratic values. By reaching out to them, we can assess issues of concern and gauge their likelihood to vote.
If volunteering in this way interests you, you can attend a weekly phone bank over zoom. Through the Zoom connection you will learn how to access the resources you need to contact Kootenai County residents from the comfort of your own home. Phone bank discussions range from talking about local or state-wide problems affecting voters to providing information on voter registration, polling locations, and details about specific candidates.
Canvassing is instrumental in getting the word out about upcoming elections. It is also our best way of getting to know the challenges and concerns that are unique to our community of voters. This volunteer opportunity requires no prior knowledge or training. You just need to be willing to engage in straightforward conversation.
Phone banking takes place every Tuesday from 5:30 to 7:30PM. However, I understand that folks are busy, so I appreciate any amount of time you can commit.
