GOTV door knocking – Hampton (3/7/16)


I participated in an Americans for Prosperity GOTV door knocking campaign in Hampton for a special election for state representative.

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 knock on doors of registered voters who have shown to be pro-liberty in the past and encourage them to go out and vote. This allows us to influence an election in the direction of liberty without throwing support behind a specific candidate or party, which may let us down and compromise their principles in time.

I assisted AFP field director Sarah Scott in hitting the last remaining doors before the special election tomorrow. Plenty of people were home, so we ended up talking with a lot of potential voters. Most were intent on voting.

155 doors were reached.
