One really easy and effective method to stay politically active is to get involved with your local legislation. Call the offices of your local representatives to voice your opinions and concerns - they are always appreciated. You can also send them an email if you prefer that form of communication. Here is a quick link to see how you can contact your representatives:
Due to the circumstances of isolation and social distancing, knocking on doors to support your campaign of choice is not a realistic option. That being said, there are still opportunities to volunteer! For example, you can follow your favorite campaign on their campaign websites (linked below) and make calls for the candidate. This helps to spread your political opinion, further your candidate’s progress, and even interact with others in this time of isolation and distancing.
If you find yourself able, donating to a campaign is a great way to make a contribution. Donations to political campaigns help them to run the campaign, keep up their social media and websites, film campaign ads, and much more. After elections are over, the extra money from donations is often given to a variety of charities. You can donate by visiting one of the campaign sites linked above.

A great way to spread information in this age of technology is through social media. Whether it be Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, TikTok or another platform, creating an account dedicated to supporting your candidate of choice is a great way to spread your candidate’s ideas and bond and interact with others who may share your views.
