Why track early vote data?

  • Know who will vote

    • Voters hold onto absentee ballots on average about 2 weeks

    • They are almost guaranteed to vote

    • Get ‘em!

  • Manage GOTV resources better

    • Every early voter removed from GOTV list is more time and money to turn out other voters

Where to get a list
