  •  How to GOTV with phonebanking (8+ / 0-)

    I did a training with PDA.org and they did studies which showed that voter turnout increases when you simply ask people if they have thought about when they are going to vote, as in:

    Are you planning to vote before going to work or after?

    There's something about having them form a picture in their mind that makes it more likely that they will get to the polls.

    Also, people never seem to mind answering this question.

      it is so unusual for many people to talk to someone who actually cares about what they do.
