The question of “how to talk to young voters” is not that different than how to talk to voters in general: talk to them about your plans to tackle the issues they care about, what you’ll do for them and their communities if elected, and ask for their votes.
However, young adults do view issues, politics, and life a little differently than their parents. here are some tips for how to relate:
Rock the Vote’s most recent poll of 18-29 year olds(37) found that the issues young voters most want the next president to address are jobs and
In most elections, incumbents have enormous advantages over challengers. Not only have they won election in the district before, and thus possess greater name ID, but they also have at their disposal all of the trappings of elected office: free mail to constituents, news coverage, patronage and increased fundraising ability.
Despite all of these advantages, though, woe to any elected official who is seen as losing touch with the district. This warning applies not only to Congressmen, who can go to Washington and seem
In the same way that high school football players can learn a lot about the game by watching the pros play in the Super Bowl, local political activists should be able to learn a lot about campaigns by watching the players in the presidential race.

In fact if you examine closely the inside workings of the Kerry campaign, as the editors of Newsweek did in the new book, ‘Election 2004’, it is clear that
As we approach yet another Election Day, all politically-minded eyes are focused on this year’s big races.

For them, while this year’s campaigns are important, the most important campaign, their own, is just beginning.
Whether you’re just thinking about running for office next year, or you’ve already decided to throw your hat in the ring, you may be asking yourself, “When should I start my campaign?” The best answer anyone can gi
Ten years ago, there was a legitimate question of whether the Internet had a role to play in political campaigns. That question has been decided. The Internet is here. Nearly 80% of Americans use email. Over half of US homes have broadband connections and wireless access is common and growing. As for political campaigns, the Internet has been accepted. Asking if a campaign uses email is now nearly as absurd as asking if they use the telephone. The question is not if they're using the Internet, but what elements are they using, how much do they use it, and what's working for them? During the 20
Success does not happen overnight but failure often does. Critical moments for business and other organizations will never go away, thus the effort to control negative situations continues to become more sophisticated. “Reputation management” is the newest buzz phrase in the public relations field and for those of us long involved in crisis management, this new phrase seems likely to stick.
In fact, among those who maintain a practice in crisis management, it appears that what we have been doing all along is
