GOTV Messaging

Getting out the vote is the last phase of voter messaging. Campaigns have already persuaded as many people as they can to vote for their candidate – all that’s left to do is make sure those voters get to the polls.

GOTV Canvassing

Canvassing, or going door-to-door to speak with voters, is the most important activity during GOTV. If you’ve never done it before, it’s not hard! In the final days before the election, you’re not persuading voters anymore – you’re only reminding them to vote.  Watch this canvassing training with Sister District National Field Director Chris Vines to help get you started.

Read some of our volunteers’ personal stories about canvassing:

Canvassing is not always so rewarding. You may knock and get no answer and leave a flyer hoping someone will read it and vote for your candidate. Sometimes it’s hard, but it’s worth it.
