For Saturday canvasses, please visit http://saturdayjakewalk.eventbrite.com
Please include a phone number and e-mail address with your reservation! We'll be holding these events throughout the summer, weather permitting - but we need to let you know if plans change!
Join Jake Ellis, Democratic candidate for Idaho's House of Representatives, and supporters as we meet people one-by-one, door-by-door, to spread the word about the firefighter who's changing the course of Idaho politics.
Contact Avery, Jake's campaign manager, with questions at 208.305.5610. We'll begin and end at Jake's house, 3927 Pennfield Avenue (see map below!).
Tentative Schedule for Tuesday/Thursday walks:

- Dress in comfortable clothing; layers in case it warms up; you can wear jeans, but nothing torn or with holes
- Comfy shoes
- No clothes with distracting or negative messages....all positive : - )
- Do you have a smart phone? If so....
- Everyone with a smart phone will be asked to download an App that they will use to record info at the doors
- If they don't have a smart phone, we will give them a paper list
We will knock on doors and meet people and share info about our candidate
We will ask them to vote for this candidate and record those responses
Basically, candidates want to contact as many people as possible and inspire them to vote for them. It is essential that we get info on who will vote and how strongly they feel about teh candidate. We will then call those voters at the right time to remind them to get out and vote!
Why is voter contact so important?
- Research has told us that this is one of the most basic and essential ways we know to win elections.
- This is exactly how Barack Obama won - lots of voter contact and lots of reminders to get people to the polls.
- Voter ID is a fundamental way that we will continue to turn our state blue!
