Election Day in March: How About a Practice Run?

Election Day for you is November 4th.

But there’s a primary election in Texas on March 4th. Florida has a special election on March 11th. And Illinois holds its statewide primary on March 18th.

Each of those days is an opportunity to practice the most chaotic, anarchic and tumultuous part of the campaign – the Get Out The Vote effort in October and November.

Get your team together for a few days – or even just a day – and volunteer for somebody’s GOTV effort in March. Takes notes. Write out your ideas. Then put together a rock solid plan for November.

GOTV matters. You don’t want to lose like this guy – or like this guy. Get a leg up on your opponent and volunteer on someone else’s Election Day. Practice makes perfect.
