This last Saturday in Nashville I held trainings on how to use the internet to collect vote pledges. As I promised, I will put some additional resources on here to supplement the training.

Remember that the peer-to-peer model involves contacting young voters where they live and where they hangout, and that the popularity of online social networks have made the internet a place where Millennials do both.

Another important point is that you start with your own social network. That is, the people you directly know online. Once you have reached out to them, ask them to spread the vote pledge through their own social network.

The Facebook portion of my training was based largely on a post I wrote earlier on Facebook Group Membership Building. Check it out if you want more information.

You can find more on creating good emails here. Remember to have the call to action in the first paragraph.

A more extensive discussion of blog outreach and getting people that have large audiences to spread your message is available on my Blogger Outreach 101 post.

If you have any questions or ideas about collecting vote pledges on the internet, leave a comment or send me an email and I will try to get back to you ASAP.
