Give Your Volunteers the Tools They Need

Alex Gorman



Picture your volunteer walking through a neighborhood in your district. He's going door-to-door for you, telling people about your campaign, trying to turn them into supporters. Are you preparing that volunteer to get the job done? Does he know anything about the people who live in that next house or is he just knocking on the door and hoping for the best?

Now picture him with a simple clip board, on it are only the addresses of registered voters you want to target. He's coming to 24 Maple Street and knows that Janet Smith lives here. He knows she's 53 and isn't registered to

Candidates Must Follow Logical Steps

Holly Robichaud



Every year campaigns start earlier and earlier.  The 2006 mid-term elections were not even over and we had presidential candidates crisscrossing the country meeting potential voters and donors.  The 2008 elections have already seen causalities.

Best Practices for your Database System

Benjamin A. Katz
Mark Rackers


While some politicos still cling doggedly to their well-loved clipboards and broken pencils, those items deserve a more appropriate interment in the Museum of Campaigns Past.  Today, you simply must use a database system.  It is the lifeblood of your campaign, the one place (ideally) where you will plan events, track fundraising, catalog volunteers, and manage your budget. 

There are two things you should keep in mind about database systems.  First, you need a good one.  Second, you need to use it right.  A good tool poorly used is no better than no tool at all.  Imagine using your

Political Campaign Fundraising

Benjamin A. Katz
Mark Rackers

First, the obvious:  running a successful campaign is expensive.  The legitimacy of a candidate is directly proportional to the size of his coffers.  If you are the candidate, out of political necessity, fundraising is and should be your priority at the beginning, middle, and end of your campaign.  And at every stage in between.  

However, as most of us learn from our parents at a very young age, asking for money is not as easy as it sounds.  When designing a fundraising strategy, a candidate must consider 1) who to ask, 2) who should be asking, and 3
