Brad Blaemire



As a voter file vendor, this is not a new question for us.  In fact, we have found our greatest competition is from clients who decide to “bring the voter file in-house”.

Is this wise?

Like most decisions, nothing is always right or always wrong.  But there are certain arguments that should be considered by every campaign or party that is considering the building and management of their voter file in-house.

Listen to Off-Year Issue Campaigns To Help Form Your Election Message

Michael Cohen



In getting ready for next year’s races, we should all take note of what is going on right now on issues voters are seeing play out right now.  Issue campaigns in off-years can provide clues as to what might drive voter decisions on Election Day – even if it is over a year away.  Remember, voters always remember your positions and so do your opponents.

One Single Idea

Cheryl Katz
Deborah Keltner

A critical component of every campaign's outreach efforts is the development and execution of a relevant, consistent, and well-managed brand. There is, however, a lot of confusion about what a brand actually is.

A brand is not a logo, a website, or a brochure.
A brand is the promise that your campaign is making. It is demonstrated by your campaign logo, slogan, website, brochures, and direct mail campaigns. Further, it is demonstrated by the way your staff answers the phones, the way you conduct yourself during public events, and the way you thank donors. It is infused in
