How to use Votocracy to bring common sense back into politics! Click here for a printable list of best practices including detailed instructions.
ITS ALL FREE FOR VOTERS
Votocracy has very powerful tools to help voters make more informed decisions about the candidates to support. The most important tool is your personal voterís guide. You start by entering your zip code to find all the elections you can vote in. Next you add candidate recommendations from groups you trust then you decide which ones to support. Finally you share your decisions with friends and ask them to help get your candidates elected. Itís all FREE for voters.
BEST PRACTICES CHECKLIST
Votocracy is REALLY easy to use. Use this checklist of items to be successful:
1. Add all your elected offices to your Voterís Guide. Most Americans are represented by over 40 different elected officials at the federal, state, county and municipal levels. Thatís a lot to follow unless youíre using Votocracy!
2. Add Endorsers to your Voterís Guide. There are many organizations Ė political parties, media, religious, cultural and advocacy groups Ė that spend a lot of time and energy evaluating candidates before they endorse them. If you trust these ďendorsersĒ you can leverage their work.
3. Determine candidates to support for all your elected offices. Now youíre ready to support candidates. All it takes is a click.
4. Tell your friends about the candidates youíre supporting to help get them elected. If you really want to shake up the status quo thatís the best way to do it!
5. COMING SOON - Download and use the mobile app. The mobile app will remind you of upcoming elections, give you directions to voting locations and give you access to your personal Voterís Guide.
6. And most importantly VOTE on election day! Use the website or mobile app to find your polling locations and bring your personal Voterís Guide into the booth. After youíve voted tell your friends and encourage them to vote too!
Then on a regular, at least weekly, basis:
- Vote in the daily poll, comment on the prior dayís poll results, post it to Facebook and Tweet it. Both are one-click actions that ďtouchĒ all your 200-300 friends.
- Post and respond to comments on elected office, candidacy and endorser pages. Itís a great way to start a dialogue and build a genuine connection.
- Check on your candidates on Votocracy and see how they are doing. Use virtual doorknocking to introduce your candidates to your friends.
