Get Out the Vote refers to a campaign to ensure that a target group of registered voters vote on Election Day. GOTV is not to be confused with Voter Registration
An organization can conduct a GOTV project in a number of ways:
- As part of a partisan campaign. In this case, the campaign can try to target voters that are likely to support their candidates.
- As part of a nonpartisan issue-based (an issue other than voter turnout) campaign. In this case, the campaign still may try to target likely supporters.
- As a nonpartisan campaign dedicated to increasing voter turnout.
