Get-Out-The-Vote & Election Integrity Workshop East Tucson - for Pro-Life and Conservative Activists

6 days until event begins

What you will learn

"Vote counting and ballot collecting does not occur in the light of day. There are too many occasions when observers and opposing parties lose contact with the ballots." - Bob Schaffer

The Dobbs decision has moved the path for advancing pro-life policies from the federal government to the states. Because of this, elected state judicial seats, as well as legislators and governors, are in the hot seat. Pro-abortion groups have a strategy to play pro-abortion constitutional amendments on ballots across the country. Politics is coming to the pro-life community and we have to be in the fight.

The Get-Out-The-Vote (GOTV) and Election Integrity Workshop advances comprehensive voter contact and ballot observation strategies. Learn ways to effectively implement targeted outreach to your supporters to ensure their votes are counted.

You will learn how to develop a systematic plan to get the most out of phones and doors, early and absentee voting, and Election Day operations that deliver successful results. Additional on-demand content, which compliments this material, is available to program enrollees.

While this particular workshop is geared toward pro-life, pro-religious freedom, and pro-family activists, everyone is welcome!

Ideal attendees for the Election Integrity Workshop are elected officials, current or future candidates for political office, campaign operatives, party officials, and campaign volunteers.

Attendees will learn how to:
• Discuss pro-life and conservative values with moderate voters

• Recruit and manage volunteers
Use absentee and early voting tools
Coordinate Election Day activities
• Work as an elections judge
• Turn out their voters

Jim DeMint

Former U.S. Senator (R-S.C.)

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.

Dena Espenscheid

Director of Grassroots Coalitions, Leadership Institute

After completing the 2020 Marine Corps Marathon, Dena Espenscheid knows the truth behind the cliché, “Campaigns are like Marathons”. There are plans, deadlines, and expenses. There are worn-out shoes, blisters, pain, exhaustion, joy, energy bursts, and mile-marker accomplishments. The big day comes and before it is over you swear off running ever again; you want to quit. Then you cross the finish line. Success feels fantastic! The next day, after a good sleep, you are out on a trail, ready to do it all again!

Over her twenty years of professional experience, Dena held a variety of positions in public policy organizations, advertising agencies, and political campaigns including, Coalition for a Strong America, National Ballot Access, American Majority, Open and Clean Government, Vote Yes for Life, and the National Abstinence Clearinghouse. Much of her work has been focused on grassroots organizing, and training volunteers and fellow staffers.

Dena is a veteran of political campaigns as small as city council and as large as a presidential campaign. She has served in most campaign positions, including volunteer coordinator, regional field director, political director, and statewide spokesperson. She has overseen ballot qualification, volunteer recruitment and training, and get-out-the-vote efforts. She has formulated communication strategies, organized events, and done personal solicitation. In campaign and public policy, Dena is a “Jill of all Trades”.

Dena has returned to her roots as a coalition builder and is margining it with her campaign and training experience as the Senior Director of Coalitions at the Leadership Institute. In this position, she travels the country, meeting with groups who have special interest goals. She learns about the services and resources they offer and the needs they have. She introduces like-minded groups so they can build their community. Where needed and when possible, she develops new trainings to assist these center-right special interest groups win their public policy fights.

Dena graduated from Thomas More College in Northern Kentucky with degrees in Biology and Speech Communication.

Dena's favorite presentations are on persuasion. She knows that people want to stay consistent with the image they project. If you tell someone they are generous before soliciting a donation, they are more likely to give. To keep herself moving, Dena is ending this bio by stating that she still runs in Quantico, Virginia where she lives with her houseplants.
