Get Involved

Together, working as a team, we can elect Democratic candidates in every election and make a difference in Wilton. Here’s how you can get involved:

Join the campaign team

We have an active group of volunteers, all dedicated to make a difference in our community, state, and nation. We’re active year-round representing Democrats in town activities, organizing fundraisers and other events, and communicating about local, state, and national issues through social media and newsletters. During election cycles we’re involved in literature drop, canvassing,  phone banks to Get out the Vote, letters to local newspapers, and distributing yard signs. It’s a great way to get involved with other Democrats in town. Please join us! Contact Vicki Rossi


Write letters to the Editor

Share your views on the candidates and issues that are important to you — your opinions matter! Every letter supporting your Democratic candidates makes a difference to your neighbors, and we encourage you to share your views. Guidelines for submitting letters to the Wilton Bulletin or Good Morning Wilton are here. We can help write letters if you wish — contact Vicki Rossi

Host an event for a candidate

Is there a candidate or Board you particularly wish to support? Consider hosting a Meet & Greet event in your home! It’s a great way for you and your neighbors and friends to get to know a candidate in an informal setting, and an opportunity to convey your views to candidates and hear about their vision for Wilton in more detail. Contact Vicki Rossi for more information.

Word of Mouth
