Ohio GOTV Makes 800K Contacts in Final Push

In a huge voter outreach push in the final days of the election cycle, the AFL-CIO political program in Ohio completed more than 800,000 voter contacts. That far exceeds previous election years. The unprecedented level of voter communication capped the massive effort under way since Labor Day that reached more than 2 million Ohio voters with 80,000 volunteer shifts. Here are the overall results: 

  • Voters contacted:                    2,011,188
  • Doors knocked:                       668,904
  • Phone conversations:               953,977
  • Worksites leafleted:                 3,509 

The effort was organized out of the AFL-CIO’s 28 field offices, along with the more than 1,800 local union offices that were active and engaged in the election in each of Ohio's 88 counties. Says Ohio AFL-CIO President Tim Burga:

The unprecedented level of volunteerism in our efforts has been driven by the issues that matter most to working families and the middle class. The path forward for job creation and economic recovery in Ohio has been paved by the actions of these volunteers who left everything on the field during this critical election.
