Getting Out The Postal Vote

At the start of the campaign I calculated that by the time the postal ballots landed on the doormats, the average voter would have received around 15 pieces of election literature and a degree of fatigue if not complete lassitude would have taken hold. 

Working with our parliamentary candidates I developed something new. for postal voters, a smart A5 postcard with three core messages on the front and a brief GOTPV message on the reverse. Each postcard was personally "topped and tailed" and the recipients name and address hand written on the back. Our volunteers wrote n staggering 54,000 postcards in three days.  These are now being delivered "knock and drop" across five parliamentary constituencies.  An amazing feat of organisation only made possible by an outstanding team - thank you all!

Here are two examples, Tracey's and Greg's:

Today, our Phone Bank was up and running at full speed with a total of 48 volunteers each working a two hour shift. Between them they made over 4,200 calls to postal voters. My thanks to Tonbridge & Malling candidate Tom Tugendhat and the team who came in today. Tomorrow we welcome Tracey Crouch followed by Greg Clark on Friday.
