  •  To GOTV you canvas door to door (7+ / 0-)

    you call people up and talk to them about the election. You recruit your friends and neighbors to recruit their friends and neighbors. You hold fundraisers, involve other organizations, workplaces, institutions.

    Have your mom go to a state convention of the Democratic Party, get herself put on the state committee, become part of the executive committee for her county, learn about house parties and fundraising activities, festivals, parades, visibilities.

    With only 12,500 people in her town she ought to be able to get a dozen friends to be precinct captains and have them recruit a dozen friends each to form democratic committees for their neighborhoods with members responsible to call or canvas as a group a dozen friends each to put up yard signs on the yards of people who agree to invite a dozen friends each to a house party and talk politics.

    Allowing for overlap that probably provides you enough participation to win local elections to offices like school board, or selectman for anybody willing to run.

    Every elected official is another vote you can count on.
