The NLP is creating a progressivegrassroots Get-Out-the-Vote network—one neighbor at a time. You do not need to be registered as a Democratic Party Voter to participate.
The program is simple; get as many progressive voters as possible to fill out and send in their ballots.
• Talk to progressive voters in your neighborhood. You will be provided with a list of about 35 homes right around your house. On average, this would account for about 50 voters.
• Knock on doors of your neighbors now and near election time.
• Develop relationships with your progressive neighbors. Thank them for voting in the past. Ask them about the issues that concern them the most. Ask them to fill out a “voter pledge card,” pledging that they will vote in the next election.
Talking to your neighbors is the best way to turn out votes. Nothing else is even close. For example, Deschutes County had an 87% progressive voter turnout in neighborhoods that had a Neighborhood Leader in November of 2016.
Speaking face-to-face with your fellow voters is a time-honored proven way to win elections. In our world, influenced by social media and other new technologies . . .
No other method comes close in effectiveness for getting out the vote.
