Check out your state’s Democratic Party website.
Put up a lawn or window sign. (These are usually available at local campaign headquarters.) When you put up a sign consider placing it where the most people will see it. Be sure to only place signs on your own property or where you have permission to place the sign.
Display a bumper sticker. These are also available at local campaign headquarters.
Wear a button or T-Shirt supporting a Democratic candidate. (Don’t forget about candidates running for senator, representative, and state legislatures. These offices sometimes make as much (or more) difference than the president.) Remember, when you wear a candidate’s promotional materials you become an ambassador for that candidate, and others may judge the candidate by your actions and behavior.
