OffTheBus Campaign Journals

Welcome to the OffTheBus Campaign Journals. Here you'll find the stories of our grassroots correspondents. Take a look to learn more about the experiences of supporters and activists during an election cycle with record-breaking grassroots involvement and technological advancement.


Want to become a grassroots correspondent? Sign up here to journal your volunteer activities with either campaign. 

We'll follow up with guidelines for your first journal and instructions on getting a publishing account here at the Huffington Post. 

We are NOT asking you to reveal campaign secrets with us. What we want is your story -- who you are, what you do, and what you learn from your time on the trail.
