Recognizing that Charlotte Women’s March has some 2,300 members who would like to make an impact on the November mid-term elections and that candidates are looking for volunteers, CWM has gathered information to help both groups meet their needs.

CMW reached out to all of the candidates who have contact information on file with the Mecklenburg County Board of Elections, along with the candidates for US House Districts 9 and 13, to create a comprehensive list of contacts and volunteer needs.

Many of the candidates’ websites have volunteer forms that you can fill out, or you may contact a campaign offices directly. You also can use each campaign’s website to learn more about the candidates who are running in your district.

And don’t forget to check the Charlotte Women’s March website and follow us on Facebook and Twitter for information about events and news pertaining to the upcoming election and related issues.

If you are interested in connecting with a campaign, we hope this list will be helpful. Information on the campaigns that responded to our request by June 21 can be found in the list below.
