Let us know how you can best help on election day, 2 May 2019. Tasks include:
- Reminding people to vote:
- Knocking on the doors of people who said they will vote Green (“knocking up”).
- Telephoning people who said they would vote green.
- Helping in a committee room.
- Giving lifts to voters with mobility difficulties who are otherwise unable to travel their polling station
- Taking voter numbers at polling stations (“telling”)—many voters don’t make up their minds until they are in the polling booth. A Green rosette and a welcoming face can help persuade them. Key times include 7am-9.30am, and 5pm-8pm.
- Tallying the votes at the count, so we know where in the county there are more Green voters.
Please tick the ways you can help below, and where you can help.Become a volunteer

Help us fight the climate crisis. Let's get more Greens elected
We need better MPs, ones that don't just pay lip service to the climate crisis. Right now you can help our General Election candidates reach thousands of voters before 12 December.
Oxfordshire Green Party is campaigning for a Green New Deal by getting more Green MPs. Already our elected Green councillors have got local councils to divest from fossil fuels, declare a climate emergency, improve cycling facilities and require 50% social housing in new developments.
We don't have much money, but we do have thousands of members and supporters in Oxfordshire. Will you help make a difference? Please sign up below to volunteer in any way you can. Or if you would like to speak to someone about it, please phone Kate Robinson on 07582 903996 to find how you can help, at a time that suits you.

You can help us campaign to win in Oxfordshire by telephoning people.
For this General Election we need people to:
- Invite supporters who have offered to help to come to action days.
- Call voters in places we cannot reach, such as rural villages and blocks of flats, to find out whether they might vote green.
and in addition, after the General Election we also need people to:
- Talk to new members to find out what they would like to do.
- Ask for regular donations so we can build the party and extend our campaigns.
If you would like to help, even if only for 30 min. each week, please fill in these forms. There are two forms.
- The one at the top with fields to fill in will sign you up to use our virtual call centre.
- The one at the bottom is for you to tell us how you can help, either getting together with a group of friends in someone's house to call one evening (a phone bank) or calling from home using our virtual call centre.
Thinking of volunteering? Want to help the Oxfordshire Green Party campaign for the common good?
Not sure what you can do? This FAQ gives an introduction into some of the less obvious ways you can help.
Would you like to help welcome newly-joined members into your area? Not everyone feels confident enough to immediately come to a big meeting or join in a campaign team. So we are looking for members who can talk to them about local issues and the things we are doing as a party.
If you are willing to be a local link person who will make that extra bit of effort to get to know new local members, please let me know and I will ensure you are provided with details of people who join in your area. In cities this area might be a few streets, in the countryside a village. I will divide up the areas once all the volunteers have signed up. Let me know which area you would like to handle.
How you welcome new members and supporters is up to you. Below are some suggestions. Tick the ones that you think might work in your area. Some are more suited to a rural village, other in towns. Or you may have better ideas.Become a volunteer
