Raleigh – Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) North Carolina state chapter is working to mobilize North Carolina veterans to vote this November 8th – in an effort called “GOTVets.”
The group’s North Carolina chapter has over 200 active volunteers in the state who aim to make 115,000 calls and knock on 17,500 doors asking people to get out and vote. CVA North Carolina is also directing veterans in the state to online resources such as CVA’s civic action center, helping veterans register to vote and locate polling locations.
There are 22 million veterans in the United States. CVA is active in 16 states across the country, using their “army” of over 2,500 volunteers to knock on doors and make phone calls for freedom. The group aims to make over 1.5 million contacts by November 8th, having already made 650,000 calls and knocked on almost 27,000 doors nationwide.
