We’ll start with a Precinct 101 training, followed by a workshop on effective listening. We’ll have a working lunch before breaking out in the afternoon.
Choose one of the following breakout sessions:
VoteBuilder, Canvassing, Phone Banking
Precinct 101: Basic literacy for county and precinct organization. Learn how to build a year-round, functional, and sustainable organization for the purpose of supporting campaigns’ Get-Out-The-Vote efforts.
Listening: In today’s political climate it has become increasingly more difficult to have civil conversations when we disagree. Participants will learn to how to ask open-ended questions and have a dialogue which can lead to a fuller understanding of why a person feels and believes as they do.
VoteBuilder: VoteBuilder is the best voter contact tool currently available. It allows us to organize our data, identify and talk to specific groups of voters that we need to target, manage our volunteer teams, and track our progress.
By the end of this training you will be able to pull up voter profiles of individual voters; create targeted lists of voters to contact via phonebanking or canvassing; share lists with volunteers via VoteBuilder and PDF; and enter data gathered through phonebanking and canvassing into VoteBuilder.
Phone Bank / Canvass: Learn how to organize phone banks and canvasses for the purpose of recruiting volunteers, gathering data, and providing information that will lead to increased voter turnout for Democratic candidates.
