GOTV stands for Getting Out The Vote for voter participation, and it is the very basis of our democracy. We want everyone’s voice heard and that begins by voting. We walk you through exactly how to execute a creative and strategic GOTV plan for your campaign. As a leader in your community, it’s your duty to find out how you can register new voters and inspire new people to the polls. It’s important to get people not only voting for you, but involved in the political process and becoming part of our democracy. You have the ability to turn everyday citizens in to lifelong political participants who never miss their day at the poll. Voter registration is an opportunity to create a great relationship.
