PART 5: GET OUT THE VOTE [Download and complete Part 5 of the template]
Identify what you will do to get people out to vote. This is an incredibly important piece of the campaign, which can make or break your success. It is important to do everything possible to mobilize your supporters.


"You have to make your supporters realize that every vote counts. In Hudson, we lost by only two votes.
We would have won if just a few more people came out to vote for us. Several people said that they would have voted for the library, if they had realized that their vote would have made the difference."

Janet Schnitzer, Past President of the Hudson Area Association Library
