Why volunteer at the polls?

  • 30% of voters will leave the non-partisan races (school board and judges) blank
  • 30% more will fill out some/most non-partisan races based on little/no info

So there are lots of persuadable voters walking toward us at the polls

How to be effective?

  • Just standing thee, holding maerials will NOT work!
  • People don’t want to be bothered.  They want to be helped.
  • The goal is not to give your material to the voter.  The goal is to get the voter to want to take it from you.
  • You need a hook to get the attention and provide an emotional response from the voter.
  • Don’t wait until the voter is in your personal space.  Get their attention 50 feet away and keep talking as they approach.  
  • Don’t have converstions.  You’ll miss approaching voters.

SAMPLE HOOKS

  • Make sure our kids get textbooks … don’t forget the non-partisan school board!
  • Don’t forget the judges!/Don’t forget the school board!  Don’t forget the non-partisan races!
  • Don’t leave half of your ballot blank!  Half the ballot is non-partisan … don’t leave it blank!
  • Conservative judges need your vote!  There is no “R” next to the names.

Choosing your hook

  • Do what you are most comfortable doing … you will attract more people with authenticity … you will be more effective.
  • Use different hooks and handouts with different people.  Observe and decide.
