Green Party Voter 2022 Election Script
The below is the suggested script for reaching out to Registered Green Party members in Colorado and elsewhere during the 2022 Election Cycle
Voicemail script to be used if future donor and Uniter doesn’t answer: “Hi Jerry, this is Bill Hammons [Joe thought it would be a good idea for me to give you a call] OR [with the Unity Party, following up on the text message I sent a few minutes ago]. I’ll try you again later, but if you’d like to give me a call back my number is 303-819-6141. Thanks!
Upraiser: Hi, is this Jerry?
Jerry Kerry: Yep
Upraiser: Jerry, this is Bill Hammons. 1) I’m calling you because you’re a registered member of the Green Party, and I thought you’d like to hear about the Unity Party of America. We acknowledge Climate Change in our platform, we’re strong on the environment in general, and we think that you, as a member of the Green Party, will be interested in the Unity Party. OR 2) Joe Kerry gave me your number and might have told you that I’d be giving you a call about the Unity Party.
Jerry Kerry: Interesting. What else do you support?
Upraiser: We also support development of Renewable Energy, and we’re working to empower underprivileged and underrepresented communities. Can I send you a link to the Secretary of State website so you can update your voter registration?
Jerry Kerry: Sure.
Upraiser: Terrific. I’m gonna put you on speaker phone real quick. [Copy and paste https://www.sos.state.co.us/voter/pages/pub/olvr/findVoterReg.xhtml into a new text]. Did you get that text?
Jerry Kerry: I did. Okay, I’ll join you.
Upraiser: Terrific. Jerry, let me also send you a link to support the Unity Party. [Copy & Paste https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=XB86EFXD3MMQQ into the body of a text message and send]. Got it? Great! Click on that link and let me walk you through the process to show you how you can support the Unity Party. You’ll see that it takes you to the United National Committee PayPal donation page (that’s the Unity Party of America). Now, would you like to donate $5 or $50 for a more United America?
Jerry Kerry: What will my money be spent on?
Upraiser: A $10 donation will pay for a month’s hosting of one of our websites, a $40 donation buys a 1,000 business cards, a $200 donation buys a 1,000 thank you cards to send to donors like yourself…
Jerry Kerry: K, I’ll donate fifty bucks.
Upraiser: Thank you for your support. And Jerry, do you still live at 456 Some Street in Pleasantville? We’d like to mail you a thank you card [OR If a referral:] And Jerry, what’s your mailing address, so that we can send you a thank you card. [Note that mailing addresses are important required information for Federal Election Commission campaign finance reports.]
Jerry Kerry: That’s me.
Upraiser: Glad we got that confirmed. While I still have you on the phone Jerry, who else do you know wouldn’t mind getting a call regarding the Unity Party of America?
Jerry Kerry: You can call my son John.
Upraiser: Great! What’s John’s #?
Jerry Kerry: 303-888-8888
Upraiser: Got it. I’ll be sure to give him a call. And who’s the next person you know?
Jerry Kerry: That’s it for now.
Upraiser: Fair enough. Jerry, let me send you a text right now that you can forward to John to give him a heads-up that I’ll be calling [Copy & Paste this 160 character message (which should transmit as one unbroken message on most phones these days) and sub out the first name of the person you’re speaking to for the 9’s, maybe changing “please” to “pls” etc. if their first name is more than 9 characters in length: “999999999, please let those you mentioned know Bill with the Unity Party of America will be calling them to ask for their support. His # is 3038196141. Thanks!“] Did you get the message?
Jerry Kerry: I did
Upraiser: Terrific. Please be sure to send that right now, because I’ll be calling him soon and I’d like him to know what I am calling about. [If you didn’t ask for a mailing address earlier] And Jerry, could I get your mailing address to send you a thank you card? [Two reasons to ask for a mailing address: 1) It’s the right thing to do to mail a thank you card & 2) FEC financial reports ask for the mailing addresses of many donors, especially the ones who make larger donations.]
Jerry Kerry: 456 Some Street, Apartment 789, Pleasantville, Great State USA 12345
Upraiser: Thank you. Jerry, please be sure to let everyone we talked about know that I’ll be giving them a call soon, be sure to visit our website unityparty.us, thanks again for your support, and have a great day!
Jerry Kerry: I’ll do that. Thanks for the call.
