SESSION 4 (FEBRUARY 9): GETTING OUT THE VOTE
Election Day is looming. You are outspent by the incumbent, but your campaign has more heart. Getting your voters out on Election Day is an active affair that will keep you and many of your staff up for at least 24 hours straight. In this two-hour session, we'll discuss:
* purging down the voter file
* last pass with your voters
* the precinct polling place kit
* Election Day planning
* an anatomy of Election Day
* election protection precautions
The fee for this workshop is $25. Attend all four workshops for $90.

Peter Zelchenko grew up in Chicago's historic "Eight Corners" neighborhood. Don't know it? It's where the four streets of politics, journalism, print, and tech converge. Roaming that harsh neighborhood for 40 years, he can't help what he knows, and he wants to share it. As early as 1971, Peter licked many envelopes and blitzed for state and local campaigns in Old Town. In 1972, he was invited to set type for the Chicago Reader but opted to be a computer programmer. Years later he did stints as Apple's first foreigner working in China; Groupon's fifth employee; both historian and innovator for the Chicago Tribune's new media; and he's contributed to numerous political and marketing efforts in and around Chicago, both paid and volunteer.
