Program: Voter Engagement Model
Speaker: Andrea Guerrero
Turning infrequent voters into reliable voters can be a difficult task. Ms. Guerrero will discuss how Alliance San Diego has built a voter base of over 50,000 voters who are transforming into regular voters and making a difference in close elections. By focusing on new citizen voters, working-class voters and voters of color and engaging them multiple times a year, they foster trust and voter participation. In the past election, Alliance voters turned out 11 points higher than other infrequent voters.
