Hyperventilating about the November election? Wondering what you can do to help make sure this disastrous administration doesn’t get another four years? How does 2,500 ILNH GOTV volunteer hours sound? This toolkit offers a number of both creative and traditional ways that we can work towards a victory in November, despite the limitations the pandemic has.
Make your own personal GOTV video! We know the personal touch is by far the most effective at encouraging people to vote. Since social distancing is the norm, the kit offers guidance on creating a personal, two-minute video on what motivates you to vote and what you plan to do to work to elect the people who share our values. ILNH will also upload these to our YouTube channel, and share over social media channels. Training sessions for video volunteers will be scheduled soon.
Connect directly with campaigns – A list of contacts for campaign organizers enables you to directly support your candidate(s) with the much needed efforts to help them win.
Platform Activism Resources – A list of actions you can take on your devices from the comfort of your couch that are impactful and critically important this year, such as MoveOn texting and several other organizations that serve as conduits between you and the voter.
Postcard Parties! Indivizzies love our postcard parties, and we’ve taken them virtual. A regular Thursday night party is held every week that helps you set aside the time to write while connecting with other Indivizzies. We’re offering specific initiatives, along with instructions about how to get postcards, postage and access to the zoom link to party on!
NJ/PA Vote by Mail Primer – Not sure how to complete your mail-in ballot to make sure it’s counted? Videos and instructions from Hunterdon and Bucks County government and party officials offer step-by-step guidance.
Deep Canvassing with Changing the Conversation Together (CTC) – Changing the Conversation (CTC) is an independent organization that trains volunteers to engage with voters using deep canvassing techniques. Deep canvassing uses personal stories with 1-1 interaction to build relationships that encourage people to vote. CTC is focusing its 2020 efforts in Bucks County to elect a Democrat to the U.S. House of Representatives and turn the district to solidly blue.
