GOTV 2020

Elections are but one critically important part of the political process. As such, it’s important to ensure that GOTV efforts include capacity investments that extend beyond November 3, 2020.  This is important, in this election, for two reasons: 

  1. Given current considerations regarding suppression, COVID-19, and related political realities it is not likely that we will have a clear winner of the presidential election the night of November 3, 2020. GOTV efforts should prepare voters for this unprecedented, likely reality; and 
  2. Election day is an important step in the process of civic participation and there are other important steps to take.  GOTV efforts should encourage and support voters with learning about and engaging with elected officials; shaping and advancing legislation; and supporting policy implementation, at every level.  The goal should be to ensure that criticism of current candidates, parties, and issues can be channeled into sustained and meaningful engagement after the November elections.
