how to launch a vote tripling pledge drive during your canvasses
Step 1: DECIDE HOW YOU’LL SIGN UP VOTE TRIPLERS
There are three ways to sign up vote triplers during canvasses:
The easiest way to sign up vote triplers is via our simple clipboard sign up form,
Add the three questions to your canvass walk scripts (i: What’s the vote tripler’s name? ii: What’s their cell phone number? iii: What are their three friends’ first names?), or
Design and print off vote tripling pledge cards.
Prepare whatever sign up method your campaign will use for your volunteers before they arrive to the canvass.
Step 2: Train your canvassers
Before your canvass, give each volunteer a printed out Vote Tripling script and ask them to read. Then, do a role play example of signing someone up as a Vote Triplers during a canvass.
Step 3: Save lists
