Get Yourself Elected – Quick Tips for Winning a Local Election
When I ran for county council years ago, I searched for a book of tips to help me know what to do. Sure, I had helped several other candidates and had run a county-wide Get Out the Vote Campaign, but it’s different when you’re running your own campaign. There’s so much to learn and do, and candidates must hit the ground running. In my book, I have combined my knowledge and experience as a professional trainer with my experience in politics to provide quick tips for candidates in local elections.
The quick, practical tips address how to:
- Fine-tune your campaign message so it connects with voters
- Get free publicity
- Use absentee voting as part of your Get-Out-The-Vote strategy
- Host low cost fundraisers to maximize efforts
