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.

Hope you enjoy the presentation. If you have any questions, comments, suggestions or need help with your new media GOTV efforts, don’t hesitate to leave a comment or contact me.

And video (with audio) of the presentation is below.
