Put the Concord Project to Work

Thank you for visiting the Concord Project!

How you can put the Concord Project to use for you and your group.

First and foremost, the Concord Project is a simple tool to help teach basic Get Out the Vote (GOTV) techniques, basic precinct information, as well as an open (“wiki”) platform/hub to collaborate and coordinate GOTV efforts.

The Concord Project: Your GOTV Bulletin Board

A few of the ways you or your group can use the Concord Project:

  • Posting GOTV events
  • Coordinating precinct walks
  • Asking for phone banking help
  • Linking to articles you think are of interest to other activists
  • Creating a discussion on a particular issue
  • Posting endorsements of candidates

In order to maximize your GOTV efforts, it is important to know how to best put the Concord Project to work for you and for America.

Below are some basic instructions on how you can use the Concord Project and its wiki platform.

Using the Forums.

The Concord Project’s forums are an open platform for individuals, activists and groups to post events, meeting announcements, or other information in order to coordinate GOTV efforts. Think of it as a bulletin board for your precinct, legislative district, or state.

In addition, you can hyperlink other websites, hold discussions, as well as communicate with one another.
