"Neighbor to Neighbor" Program--

"Neighbor to Neighbor" Program--
The Democratic National Committee has done a scientific experiment studying the
various ways of increasing voter conversion--
  • robocalls
  • personal calls
  • mailings
  • multiple mailings
  • neighbor to neighbor contact.
All methods except one generated only a 1 or 2% increase in voter participation.
The ONE METHOD that increased voter participation the most, 12%, was
neighbors knocking on neighbors doors--
mailers affect 1 in 400 voters
phone calls affect 1in 50 voters
face to face contact - connects 1 in 12
"Neighbor to Neighbor" Program--
All you do is log in to MY.BARACKOBAMA.COM/VOTERCONTACT and follow the directions from there. They will help you print out a walk list of 20 undecided voters who live near you (there is a flyer too).
Then you knock on each person's door and ask them where they stand and record their responses so we can get them out to vote in November if they are a strong supporter, try to persuade them further if they are undecided or just leave them alone if they are not supporting.

You don't have to do it all at once. You can do it an hour at a time in the evenings or whenever you get some free time. If someone isn't home, just come back another time until you have talked to all 20 people on your list. You can input your data at any time, you don't have to wait until you get to all 20 people.

The next time you log in and click on the "NEIGHBOR to NEIGHBOR" button, you will see a button labeled "Report Voter Contacts" at the top of the screen. Just click on that button and report your data for each person. And then, please sign up for more contacts if you can.
