The Hoboken Democratic Committee kicked off their first virtual field office last night as part of an effort to get the Joe Biden/Kamala Harris ticket elected in swing states, as well as getting U.S. Senator Cory Booker re-elected in New Jersey.

“This election is too important to stand on the sidelines and we in New Jersey have a responsibility to help our friends in swing districts turn out the vote,” Hoboken Democratic Committee Chair Rachel Hodes said in a statement last night.
“The past three-and-a-half years have shown us the repercussions of bad leadership, which is why we must elect Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, and Democrats up and down the ballot, this November. It is our hope that our virtual field office makes it as easy as possible to get involved!”
On yesterday’s Zoom call, Hodes and others noted that while the COVID-19 pandemic has rendered traditional campaigning moot for the time being, the HDC are pushing to getting out the vote in a socially distant, safe, and effective manner.
Opportunities such as phone banking, text banking, and post card writing are open to any and all volunteers and can be done from home.
