October: Text Bank to GOTV
On October 18, 2018, WMM hosted a text bank and postcard party to get out the vote in Minnesota. Thanks to our co-sponsor Indivisible Minnesota Local and thanks to Erin Maye Quade for getting us ready to go.
We contacted 15,000 plus in one night! Way to go Third Thursdays!
1 bar, 2 hours, 50 people = 15,000 voters contacted by text and 600plus cards written! Great GOTV results, folks. Thanks for coming out and working so darn hard. You were phenomenal. And it was fun!
Takeaway: Text banking is a REALLY good way to be in touch with people about voting. And by the end it looked like there was a new group of text bankers ready to lend a hand to some lucky election campaigns.
