The Donald J. Trump campaign director in Illinois is looking for volunteers!


The most urgent current need is for volunteers to make calls.  No call centers are being set up in Tazewell County, but it is easy to get set up to make the calls from home.  You will need a PC or tablet to use while on the calls.  The website talk.donaldjtrump.com makes the calls.  When someone answers, the website shows you who was called, gives you a script to use during the call and lets you check boxes to record the person's replies and ask the appropriate next question.  You can use your land line phone or cell phone; or use a headset with your PC.
