Camp Wellstone comes to Seattle

By None:

That's right. The famous Camp Wellstone training program is coming to Seattle on September 11 and 12. The get-out-the-vote program is sponsored by the Wellstone Action Fund, a nonprofit organized to honor the late Senator Paul Wellstone and his grassroots political movement.

From the announcement...

You are invited to an intensive get-out-the-vote (GOTV) training sponsored by the Wellstone Action Fund. This 2-day practical skills training will be held on September 11 and 12 in Seattle and is designed especially for individuals and non-profit organizations doing non-partisan voter registration, education and mobilization.

The late Senator Paul Wellstone was deeply committed to citizen activism and engagement in the political process. He believed that ordinary people need to organize and develop the skills necessary to be effective participants in their community and nation. This training program draws heavily from the lessons passed on to us from Paul Wellstone.

This training will have an exclusive focus on the final push to get-out-the-vote, including the elements of an effective, energetic and winning GOTV effort. It will cover work at the door, on the phone, recruiting volunteers, absentee ballot and early vote rules, vote by mail programs and working with the media. The training will also provide a step-by-step guide for mobilizing voters in the final weeks before the election and on Election Day itself.
