Candidate Training: How to Support Your Campaign During GOTV (7/10)

Free training from the National Democratic Training Committee:

Join the National Democratic Training Committee on Friday, July 10th from 1pm-2pm EST [9:00 AM – 10:00 AM AK time] for a free virtual live training on “How to Support Your Campaign During GOTV”. Whether you’re running for office, working on a campaign, or building your local party’s or organization’s infrastructure, you need to get out the vote (GOTV)! You’ve worked hard to gather supporters to reach your vote goal, and you need to ensure they go vote. We’re here to help! Our GOTV virtual live trainings are a brand new set of trainings to provide you with new tools and resources to help you win.

During this session, our trainer will train on effective best practices with organizing precincts and recruiting precinct leaders, while also identifying how best to support campaigns as a local party and how to prepare turnout for base voters during GOTV.

A recommended (but not required) course for this training is “GOTV.”

If you would like to donate to your local branch of the Democratic Party, here is the Tongass Democrats’ ActBlue donation page. As a reminder, we had to cancel our main annual fundraiser this year – the one that helped fund Democratic and Progressive campaigns around Alaska! – due to COVID, so your support would be especially helpful right now.
