(I will post a schedule for phonebanks later this week, but thought this looked just as good as phonebanks. But since it was not phonebanks, it might have more appeal to you, especially since every vote that is cured is a vote for a Democratic candidate. It’s like driving someone to the polls, you will have been responsible for a vote.)
