1 The bare bones of the CTU election campaign PSA YOUTH CONFERENCE MAY 2014

2 We can change politics There are more than enough registered voters who do not support the current policies of National and its support parties – they can change politics in September with their votes. The gap between the National+ bloc and the Labour/Green+ bloc is very narrow already – even when you only count those most likely to vote in September The story of the 294,000….

3 The big difference this time One non-partisan union movement campaign Main focus is on mobilisation, rather than advocacy or persuasion Election runs from 3-20 September Voters can enrol and advance vote at about 10% of polling places until 19 September - and can vote in all polling places on Election Day

4 Volunteers All volunteers will be asked to collect and record Voter Pledges. Volunteers can also:  Help VOTERS make and record their Voting Plan  Organise around the Voting Plan (eg where the VOTER needs transport or where the plan is a collective plan at the workplace)  Follow up with VOTERS following their vote

5 1, 2, 3 ………. Voters 1. Make a Voter Pledge 2. Make a Voting Plan 3. Vote Campaign – staff, volunteers and system 1. Identify potential progressive non-voters at work and in community and record their Voter Pledges on our database 2. Record Voting Plans 3. Follow up Voting Plans

7 Where will we find our VOTERS? In the workplace At home and on-line  Volunteers’ and voters’ families and social media networks In target neighbourhoods – where there is a lower vote but where we know there is support for progressive policies and parties  Doorknocking  Phoning  Community events  Volunteers’ own community networks – like churches and sports clubs
