It is a program centered around capacity building at the local level, that will enable each of your committees to:
Activate your existing volunteer base
Recruit new members
Engage new members
Reach out to low-turnout voters
The DPG is officially launching the program this week along with a digital ‘Commit to Vote’ card. The digital CTV cards will allow you to collect voter data like emails, cell phones, address, etc while also allowing you to recruit volunteers.
In order to take part in this organizing effort we ask that committees follow these simple steps.
Collect Commit to votes (Digitally or using actual cards)
Host volunteer phone-banks centered around calling low-turnout Democrats
Follow-up with card signers to recruit them for volunteer activities/opportunities
Follow-up with volunteers recruited over the phone to invite them for volunteer activities/opportunities
If we follow this approach over the next few months we will have used valuable time establishing trust and engaging base voters who are our most valuable resource. For the past few years Georgia has consistently lost statewide elections with a vote deficit of 190,000 – 200,000 votes in state with a population of over 10,000,000 people.
Through doing our part and engaging with voters early on we are certain to increase the amount of voters who show-up during our November municipal elections and our Gubernatorial election next year.
Please join us for our monthly breakfast meeting on Saturday, July 22 at 9am at Piccadilly in Tucker, GA.
