Friend to Friend GOTV
Talking to people you know and reminding them to vote is a very effective way to get people to vote. Think about three to five people who you can contact who might not vote without a reminder. Niece or nephew? Aunt or Uncle? Grandchildren? Maybe someone from your book club?
Friend to friend voter contact works in conjunction with traditional canvasses and phone banks. It’s effectiveness comes from three aspects:
– Better contact information. You have your Mom’s correct phone number!
– Better contact rates. Mom will most likely take your call.
– More influential. Let’s hope that you have more influence with your Mom than a telemarketer!
What to say? You’re talking to people you know! Talk in a way that you usually talk. The general idea is, “Can we count on you to vote the Democratic ticket?” If the answer is yes, then talk to the person about making a plan. Look up the early voting for them in their community. Go with them if it makes it more social and more likely that the person will vote.
If you have a chance, put the information into VoteBuuilder. Send it to your organizer if you are working with someone. I’ll help connect you if needed. I am KateDonaghue@aol.com or 508-404-8531.
