Neighborhood Leader Program Training

August 3, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Become a Neighborhood Leader!

Join us on Thursday, August 3 from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. in the Adams Room at the Medford Public Library, 205 South Central for Neighborhood Leader Program (NLP) Training.  The NLP is a progressive grassroots Get Out the Vote network, one neighbor at a time. Given the current state of affairs, we hope you will join us.  Those interested in attending please contact Paul Dieterich at:  pauld@jeffnet.org

The program is simple. The whole idea is to get as many progressive voters as possible to fill out and send in their ballots.

• Talk to progressive neighbors registered as members of the Pacific Green, Progressive, Working Family, and Democratic parties. You will be provided with a list of about 35 homes right around your house. On average, this would account for about 50 voters.
• Knock on doors of your neighbors now, and occasionally again, including near election time. If they are not home, you can try another time, at your leisure.
• Develop a relationship with your progressive neighbors. Thank them for voting in the past. Ask them about the issues that concern them the most. And ask them to fill out a “voter pledge card,” pledging that they will vote in the next election.

Talking to your neighbors is the best way to turn out votes. Nothing else is even close. For example, Deschutes County had an 87% progressive voter turnout in neighborhoods that had a Neighborhood Leader in November of 2016.

Speaking face-to-face with your fellow voters is a time-honored and proven way to win elections. Even in our world, which is so influenced by social media and other new technologies, no other method comes close to effectiveness in getting out the vote.

WE HOPE TO SEE YOU AT THE TRAINING!
