I’ve been doing neighborhood campaign walks lately, and had someone asked me today how close to the election she could still donate money (she was a bit short now, but wanted to give something before it was too late).
I asked around back at my union hall, and no one really knew.
So, how late in the game could you give something, and still expect it to do some good for electing your candidate? The week before election day? Could you still donate online a day before election day, and expect that money to be put to work? Would dropping off your donation to a local campaign office be a better option for a last-minute donation, where it could be used more grassroots? Would dropping money off at a local office the day before election day even make a difference?
