Campaign field programs employ a mix of tactics to identify, persuade, and mobilize target voters over the course of an electoral campaign, including canvassing, letters, texting, postcards, and phonebanking.
This series focuses on phonebanking. Led by staff coordinators of the Sister District phonebank program, each 30min lunchtime session is designed to help organizers and volunteers learn more about the ways phonebanking helps campaigns & how to make the most of this particular tactic.
All sessions over Zoom, 10-10:30am PT / 1-1:30pm ET. Co-sponsors include All in for NC, Run For Something, Greater Andover Indivisible, Swing Blue Alliance, Together We Elect & Turn PA Blue!
How specifically does our work on the phones help campaigns scale, improve their targeting, optimize their field capacity, and take the right next steps with individual voters?
Persuasion & Recruiting Local Volunteers
How do we orient ourselves and others to the work of persuasion? What about recruiting local volunteers? re the latter, Sister District National phonebankers recruited 3 local volunteers on avg at each phonebank in 2021, all worth their weight in gold. Let’s talk about how to recruit effectively.
