How to Develop Your GOTV Universe and Script
Wednesday, August 23 at 1pm ET

You may think you want to reach every voter in your community. In fact, that might just end up wasting time and resources. By developing your GOTV universe – meaning the voters likely to turn out and vote for you – you’ll refine your efforts for the best results.

This training will go over the principles of figuring out your GOTV universe and how to best use it on the trail. In addition, you will go through exercises to create a persuasive script for your volunteers going door-to-door or phone-banking.

This training is the best overview for any staff, candidate, or volunteer going into red areas. We’ll review voter targeting, calculating your vote goal, and how to have empathetic, effective conversations with voters.

Prepare for GOTV time – or just get ahead of the game. Our expert trainer will go over the five best field tactics: canvassing, phone banking, sending texts, hosting events, and Relational Organizing.
