This call will cover three distinct but related topics -- petition drives, volunteer recruitment, and voter databases. This will be an interactive dialogue with participants about how to successfully mobilize volunteers for early campaign work such as petition drives, effective petitioning strategies, and how to capture information gathered by volunteers into an effective database. Participants should plan to access this internet while participating on the call. Topics covered will include:

The Platform is a tool and provides guidance in responding to questionnaires, live forum/debate questions, or potential voted on the spot. The call will cover:
