MiniVAN vs Paper for Get Out the Vote

MiniVAN for GOTV is the way to go! Use MiniVAN in order to better manage your passes during postal vote knock up and on polling day. MiniVAN will display a voted badge for all eligible electors that have voted based on the data that your team enters using the data entry telling tools.

MiniVAN has the advantage of updating every time you sync so that you always have up-to-date information about who has voted, as opposed to using paper lists where you need to strike people off your list manually.

Polling days are the busiest days of a campaign and it is not easy to enter all the data that comes in from your GOTV efforts on the day-of and to reprint refreshed lists for new teams as they go out. However, using MiniVAN will make your entire GOTV plan simpler and more efficient. All you have to do is refresh your list at various points during the day to ensure that you are picking up the data that has been entered from telling.

Make sure your team is ready to commit data continuously throughout the day so you are able to remind those that have yet to vote and ensure you are not trying to contact those that already have!

As great as MiniVAN is, it is always important to ensure that you have back-up paper lists - just in case!
