GOTV - the most important part of a campaign/county plan

Get-out-the-Vote (GOTV) is the culmination of all the long hours of work done in every campaign. It is the busiest time of every campaign, and it is critical to your success.

You have one deadline: the closing of the polls on Election Day. The deadline will not change. You are either prepared or you are not. You cannot run a little behind schedule. There are no time outs. Every part of your get-out-the- vote operation must run flawlessly.

Every voter you identified must be reminded over and over again to vote. On Election Day, votes cannot be allowed to sit at home. The number of voters who forget to vote or who vote for Congress but forget about State and local election races will determine what kind of future you will have.

It is important to develop a good GOTV plan for your campaign, and your county. For more information about GOTV, contact me at
