Integrated GOTV: Getting Out the Vote Online

Henri Makembe

On October 14th, I had the opportunity to be a presenter for NOI’s New campus GOTV series. My presentation centered around integrating in a campaign’s GOTV efforts, with an eye toward showing how conscious integration of your online presence can boost your efficacy and reach and help your campaign expand capacity in many ways.

In the slides, I attempt share best practices of integrating your online program for GOTV, and show helpful tricks to increase productivity as you move voters to the polls. Whatever else you take away from the slides, I’d like to highlight two items from the presentation:

  • Empower your supporters and volunteers (to help with your new media efforts)
  • Online efforts should amplify and support existing offline organizing efforts.

Back from Europe

Howdy folks, Epolitics.com is back in business — I’m back from 10 days in Paris and London, centering around presentations at the World E-Gov Forum in Paris and at the London School of Economics a few days later. I’ll be posting photos and details about the trip soon, but it was a hell of a time all around. Both cities are fantastic places to explore, and I was lucky enough to meet some terrific people through the conference and at the LSE. And I can’t tell you what a relief it was to be spared U.S. political coverage for a few precious days — the group-think among American political “analysts” is suffocating, and it actually seemed easier to see things more clearly from afar. We’ll see what happens in a week…I hear there are some elections of some sort or another coming up.
