The NCDP has put together several targets for you:• NCDP: Early Vote Target: Daytime Calls• NCDP: Early Vote Target: Evening CallsDepending on what type of voter contact your planning select the appropriate target.

Why use these targets?

• Using these targets prevent voters from being called twice in one day by different campaigns.

• It’s a self-cleaning list that removes voters recently canvassed by other campaigns and organizations in your area.

• Using NCDP targets allow you to maximize your time on the phone.• Allows you to talk to the most productive voters first. • Allows you to save valuable volunteer time by having daytime callers call

daytime targets and evening callers call evening targets.

Most importantly: Helps Democrats win elections
