Your Election is Not Cancelled

These past few months have been full of uncertainty. You may be wondering… How will you get your name on the ballot if you can’t door knock for petitions? How can you express your views on the economy to your voters? Will the election be held on the same day or postponed?

Voters are just as full of questions… Where do I vote? How do I vote? Who is even on the ballot?

One thing is for certain, if your primary is scheduled for June 2 or later, your election is not cancelled!

With door-knocking and events out of the question, now is the time to re-open and jump start your campaign, starting those crucial conversations with voters in new ways.

How can CampaignHQ help?

Voter ID

Telephone Townhalls

GOTV

VOTER ID

Use the month of May to learn what your voters think! Since in-person campaigning has been impossible for the last 60 days, you may have pushed back your voter ID. CampaignHQ can help you get back on track and identify your supporters and undecided voters.

We can set up an automated call quickly, and they are extremely affordable! We can help draft a script, record the audio, scrub the list of mobile phones, set up, and launchUsing an automated call to survey voters can help you get the results you have been anticipating quickly!

CampaignHQ can also assist you with a live blind ID call. Simply send us a list of voters you would like us to contact and we can do the rest!

 

Telephone Townhalls

CampaignHQ can help you rally your supporters and show undecided voters that you are ready, able, and willing to talk with them and answer their questions!

Setting up a telephone townhall is easy when working with CampaignHQ. Simply send us a date and time you would like to talk with your voters (or constituents on the official side!) and a list. We will help you record your sound files for a pre-call, live answer, voicemail, and even post call! We can also help you invite voters via text message and advise you on how to promote the event through your email and social channels.

 

GOTV

As the country re-opens and election day grows near, phone calls can significantly impact your turnout. We are in an unprecedented time. Some people have never voted by mail and if they don’t request an absentee ballot, they may not be able to vote for you on Election Day! Others may be confused how and where to vote, now that protocols have changed due to social distancing.

CampaignHQ can send out a conTEXT message letting your voters know where their voting location is on Election Day! We can even text voters how they would apply for an absentee ballot! As you know, nothing is worse than voters not showing up to cast their ballot!

Give us a call,

President Lincoln’s Thoughts on Voter ID

We’re taking it back a few years today. I post I wrote in 2009, for your reading pleasure:

 

I came across this quote from Abraham Lincoln the other day, and thought it was just too good to keep to myself …

“Organize the whole state so that every Whig can be brought to the polls… Divide the county into small districts and appoint in each a sub-committee. Make a perfect list of all the voters and ascertain with certainty for which they will vote, keep a constant watch on the doubtful voters and…Have them talked to by those in whom they have the most confidence, and on Election Day see that every Whig is brought to the polls.” -Abraham Lincoln 1/21/1840

Keeping in mind Lincoln lost several elections before winning the Presidency, this lesson was one that was probably learned the hard way – through defeat.

While much has changed in how we run campaigns since the 1860s, the basic premise remains the same. Identifying supporters. Getting them to the polls. Convincing those who don’t agree to come to your side with effective reasoning and appropriate messengers. Lincoln really knew his stuff.

Thanks for reading,
