Influencing your sphere of reference to make sure that they vote. [View all]


In these last two weeks, here’s how I’m trying to GOTV in my sphere of reference.
Just thought I’d pass it along in case anyone is looking for easy ways to help.

Go thru all of your phone, text, email, and any other kind of contact lists.

Write down those names that you are reasonably sure would (if they voted) vote Democratic.

Then, go thru the list and think about each person and what you think are their major concerns, interests, or what motivates them. Write a note down by their name.

Then contact them and find out if they have already early voted.....if so, thank them and tell them you hope they are encouraging others to vote….but, if they say “no or not yet”…..delve further to see if they are really going to vote or are wavering or somewhat apathetic. If this is the case, you then hit them with what would interest them most in voting for the Dems….e.g Trump hatred, health care, climate change, higher paying jobs, protecting Social security, protecting abortion rights, etc…….if you get a buy in from them that that they are interested in something...then close the deal on persuading them how important voting is and even offer to take them to vote if they are in your area. Good luck. 👍🍀

Vote Blue! Bring on the blue 🌊.
