Outreach Guide

Page history last edited by Gaurav Mishra 11 years, 4 months ago

We are going ahead with the outreach plan starting today. Email outreach will be at the core of the plan, but we'll use all resources available to us.

 

EMAIL-MESSAGE

 

Dear (Enter Name),

I have been involved in an interesting project related to the upcoming Indian election and I would like to invite you to join me.

Vote Report India (votereport.in) is a collaborative citizen-powered election monitoring platform for the 2009 Indian general elections.

Step1: You can send reports about irregularities in the election process in four ways --

1. Send SMS starting with VoteReport to 5676785

2. Send email to report@votereport.in

3. Send tweet with #votereport

4. Submit online at votereport.in

Step 2: We will map the results on a Google map at votereport.in

Step 3: You can subscribe to alerts for your location on RSS, email or SMS.

 

I would also encourage you to spend some time at our website at votereport.in to get a sense of what we are doing.

If you like what we are doing, please join the Vote Report India community  at Twitter (@votereportindia), Facebook, Orkut, SMSGupShup or Google Groups and subscribe to our blog. If you have a blog or a website, please consider writing about Vote Report India and displaying our banners (200X200 and 150X150) on your blog or website.

Please participate in this initiative and help us ensure a free, fair and transparent election process in India.

Regards,

(Your Name)
