"Voting is a right best exercised by people who have taken time to learn about the issues." Tony Snow
The Get-Out-The-Vote (GOTV) Workshop advances a comprehensive voter contact strategy. Learn ways to effectively implement targeted outreach to your supporters.
You will learn how to develop a systematic plan to get the most out of phones, door-to-door, early and absentee voters, and Election Day operations that deliver successful results. Additional on-demand content, which compliments this material, is available to program enrollees.
Ideal attendees for the GOTV Workshop are elected officials, current or future candidates for political office, campaign operatives, party officials, and campaign volunteers.
Attendees will learn how to:
• Recruit and manage volunteers
• Identify and target voters
• Use absentee and early voting tools
• Coordinate Election Day activities
• Turn out their voters
With the 2012 elections right around the corner – elections which I believe will be among the most important in our nation’s history – I truly believe the Leadership Institute’s efforts have never been more important.
Charlie O'Neill is the Grassroots Director for the Leadership Institute. He has spent over a decade working in politics, public policy, and communications. Prior to working at the Leadership Institute, he worked as Deputy Executive Director at the Republican Party of Pennsylvania. He also has served as a Legislative Liaison in Governor Tom Corbett's Administration in two agencies, served as a staffer in PA State Senate, and managed campaigns from School Board to Congress across Pennsylvania.
Had it not been for a shared love of baseball, Charlie's career may have taken a different trajectory. In 2009, he landed an interview to be a Congressional Intern while attending Catholic University in Washington DC, in the office of the late Congressman Howard Coble. He made a lifelong friend discussing baseball, and a hatred of the Washington Nationals, with the Congressman's Orioles fan chief of staff. As a Phillies fan, born and raised in Northeast Philadelphia, his accent did not fit in, but his work ethic did. After several years in the office, through networking on the Hill, he started working for the Republican Governor's Association until 2012 when he returned home to Pennsylvania.
When not volunteering for the local county committee, where he has held Committeeman, and Vice-Chair positions, Charlie and his wife Kelly enjoy hiking, relaxing in the back yard, and spending time with family at the Jersey Shore along with their son and miniature Australian Shepherd, Ted.
