Creating your Action ID

What is an ActionID and why do I need one? 

An ActionID is an account that you use to log in to all things VAN, including OpenVPB and MiniVAN. Before you or your group members can canvass or phonebank, you'll need to create an ActionID! Luckily, anyone can do this just by registering online, no need for a special invitation. 

What if I already have an ActionID? 

If you've volunteered in the past for political campaigns then you may already have ActionID account. That's great, because you can use the same account to volunteer with Indivisible.
