I received this the other day from the Democratic Party—asking for volunteers to make calls to get voters to the polls in the election in the Sixth District Of Georgia. With all the new immigrant outreach and languages, I didn't see a place for me (a white, English-speaking American citizen) so I didn't volunteer or make any calls.
From: Eric WimerJames Fulford writes: Apparent enough actual Americans showed up for Ossoff to lose, and Karen Handel to win. However, it's interesting to know that the Democratic Party machine has computerized lists of registered voters who are native speakers of Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese, Hmong Daw, Korean,Hindi, Gujarati, Bengali, Tamil:, or Vietnamese—in the Sixth District of Georgia.

Subject: Phone Banking for Ossoff!! Polls Close at 7pm EST!
Thanks for reaching out to phone bank! Take a look at our phone banks and the phone bank packet, which goes over how Virtual Phone Bank works and answers FAQs, then reach out to me with any questions you have. If feel ready to jump in, no better time than now. 9 hours left, let's win this!!
Good Morning Team Ossoff!!
Today we are on Get Out the Vote!!! That means talking with voters to get them to the polls, which are now open!! Asking questions like when they plan to vote and how they plan to get there allows them to see issues in advance and makes them much more likely to vote!!!
We won't be leaving messages, won't engage with Handel supporters, and if supporters have issues that you cannot answer, give them the number of our Ride to the Polls / Other Voter Issues Hotline: 470-231-7940.
Please look through the Ossoff Phone Bank Packet!! It is getting to the point in the race where I am having trouble getting back to everyone's questions in time, and many of the questions asked have their answers available in that packet. Email me with any other questions or issues

What I'd like to know is this: are all these Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese, Hmong Daw, Korean,Hindi, Gujarati, Bengali, Tamil, and Vietnamese speakers also AMERICAN CITIZENS?
Attempts to find out keep being struck down by the courts as racist.
