What is Plus3?
Plus3 is a new Get Out the Vote (GOTV) strategy to help address the problem of low voter turn-out, especially in non-presidential elections. It is a collaboration between Thunderdome Politics and other grassroots organizations such as Virginia Indivisible groups.
We need volunteers like you to join Plus3 and help flip Virginia Blue! Candidates for the VA House of Delegates who are participating with Plus3 are excited about this special initiative that complements their campaign efforts.
How Does Plus3 Work?
When you sign up for Plus3, you will pick a district you live in or live near. As part of a district team, you’ll gain access to a private Facebook Group for your district and will be kept informed through email as well. As soon as you volunteer, please reach out to invite friends, family and members of other groups (think: PTA, Book club, College Association, etc.) to also join us! Share this page. We need as many volunteers as possible.

- District 10 (Wendy Gooditis)

Connecting with Your Voters
In mid- to late August, you will get a contact list of three voters who live near you. Your “3” are people who vote, and likely vote Democratic, but who vote only occasionally or not at all in non-presidential elections.
After you receive your voter contacts, until the election, you may send postcards, call, text, or reach out to the voters through social media. Ultimately, how and when you choose to interact is up to you, but the goal is to let them know there is an election, help them understand the importance of voting in non-presidential elections, answer any questions they may have about their candidates, and help them solve any obstacles they may have to voting on November 7th. Volunteers get to see the fruits of their effort and voters get to interact with a consistent contact person across time.
And you won’t be alone – which makes it fun!
You will also have a team for your District, with leaders to support you along the way, and a Facebook Group for each Plus3 District so you can share ideas, support each other and even arrange to work on this in small groups. There will be resources on each FB Group for you as well, and events scheduled by your Team Leaders, such as Happy Hours and postcard parties!
This Sounds Cool. So What Do I Do Next?
