Hampton special election GOTV – Dover (3/3/16)

I participated in an Americans for Prosperity GOTV phone bank in Dover for a special election for state representative in Hampton.

Special elections occur when a seat is vacated in between elections. They are typically very low turnout, and are therefore relatively easy to impact. Activists call registered voters who have shown to be pro-liberty in the past and encourage them to vote.

The phone banking crowd this time around was fairly sparse, mostly due to the office in Dover being relatively new. We made calls for about two hours, since after calling through the entire list twice we ran out of work to do. It’s a good problem to have.

Myself included, three total volunteers were present. Vince Perfetto was present at my urging.
