Over the last week, the Rights Brigade pulled off a wide variety of activism operations across the state, in cooperation with three different organizations.

First, Rights Brigade activists participated in a get-out-the-vote push in Hampton, working in conjunction with the New Hampshire branch of Americans for Prosperity. In total, 5-9 (depending on if kids count) activists assisted AFP staff and volunteer a total of 5-7 times (in two of those instances two separate teams went out), for a total of 9-13 activist participation instances. Activists knocked on 573 doors and made 179 calls. AFP-NH as a whole, which included 5 full-time staff and 7 part-time staff (and plenty of other volunteers recruited by staff), knocked on 3,221 doors and made 11,215 calls. Meaning, the Rights Brigade did almost 20% of the overall door knocking effort, projecting AFP’s field director who handled all RB volunteers to second place in the entire nation for the week.

Hampton special election GOTV – Manchester (3/1/16)

I participated in an Americans for Prosperity GOTV phone bank in Manchester 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 room was packed, and we made calls for three hours. This included calling through the entire list twice.

Over a dozen total volunteers were present. Sylvain Yaakov was present at my urging.
