VOICE leaders getting out the vote in Virginia
375 VOICE volunteer leaders went door-to-door to speak with residents 4 weeks before Election Day and on Election Day. The GOTV effort followed VOICE’s assembly with both gubernatorial candidates in October. The assembly was the largest assembly of the election season that had both candidates in attendance. VOICE increased the voter turnout percentage between 24% and 39% in six precincts and between 9.5% and 11% in two others. VOICE worked in a total of 8 low-voting precincts in Prince William and Fairfax Counties. Prince William is a bellwether county in state and national politics and Fairfax has the most voters of any county in Virginia. VOICE also secured a commitment from Governor-Elect Northam to meet with leaders before he is sworn into office on January 13th.
