Creating Your GOTV Plan






By its very nature, GOTV is the sprint at the end of the marathon—volunteers, staff, and even the candidate may be on their “last legs.” And yet, they’re asked to do more than they’ve done at any other point in the campaign.

This guide will walk you through all the components of a comprehensive GOTV plan.

Larger campaigns may build a plan that utilizes every part of this template. While smaller campaigns might use only pieces of this template to execute GOTV.

Regardless of the size of your campaign, use this tool as a jumping-off point on your way to a successful GOTV.
