There’s a simple psychological principle we can use to help turn out the vote:

People are more likely to keep a commitment they make to someone else than one they make to themselves.

It’s easier to let yourself down than it is to disappoint someone else.

1/
Pick those friends you secretly worry might blow off voting and hit them up.

You: “I’m voting. You have my word that I’m going to vote. Are you going to vote?”

Friend: “Yes. I am.”

You: “Good. That’s a relief. I know you’ll keep your word. It matters.”

2/
However you word it, getting another person’s promise to vote as a commitment to YOU dramatically increases the likelihood they’ll keep it.

Even if it feels awkward, it helps... and we need those votes most of all.

We need the people who might not follow through.
