NCIL GOTV Phone Bank Guide

Did you know that phone banking has been recognized as “the single most effective tactic” in encouraging voters with disabilities to turn out at the polls on Election Day? On October 12, 2016, NCIL’s Voting Rights Subcommittee released its “2016 Get Out The Vote (GOTV) Phone Banking Guide,” a brief but thorough resource designed to help both individual advocates and organizations strategize a comprehensive GOTV phone banking plan for the remaining weeks leading up to Election Day. This resource includes guidelines on creating a phone banking plan and schedule; tips and best practices for making GOTV calls and encouraging individuals to see the value in their vote, especially on issues important to the disability community; and a sample GOTV call log to help you track you outreach.
