Download campaign literature from our website and share in your community. Check out the link below for locations of farmers market to share campaign materials at

Call radio station’s news directors and talk show hosts to have Ken on as guest or you can call in live, so your voice can convey the news about our campaign, also. Contact your local newspapers (see state wide media link listed by cities in attachment, it is quite long, but you will be able to pinpoint your local media by scrolling down to your preferred city) and other media outlets to help promote the campaign with letters to the editors and request that all gubernatorial candidates get equal coverage. Let them know we are viable and that it is a Catch 22 scenario that viability and media coverage go hand in hand.

Visibility/Creating Buzz (remember due to corporate media blackout many voters don’t even know that Ken and Erin are on the November 2nd ballot)

Chalk Sidewalks: Urging people to vote for Ken with chalk on sidewalks and in other high foot-traffic locations – simply write VOTE KEN PENTEL FOR GOVERNOR and WWW.KENPENTEL.ORG

Distribute posters, fliers, and homemade yard signs in high traffic areas

Pass out Fliers at high foot traffic locations (rush hour lines, metro stops, movie lines, concerts, fairs, farmers markets, etc.

New Quarter page:

Put up yard signs in people’s lawns, in windows and at busy street intersections

Car Parade: Get volunteers in 2 or more cars to drive around targeted neighborhoods with signs plastered to cars and (especially if you have loudspeakers or megaphones) urging people to vote for Ken and Erin. Know your local city/county rules on noise regulations.

Displaying Signs/Banners: On a high traffic morning or evening commute, you can reach between 20-40K cars in 2-3 hours by putting up a highly visible banner freeway overpasses during rush hour, standing at a busy intersection.

Host a House Party, contact the volunteer link on and we will get back to you on scheduling a date to have Ken Pentel attend your gathering of friends, family and neighbors.

Thanks again to all of the volunteers who have been putting their energy into the campaign.
