More Ideas for How to Use the Media

  • You may also want to consider publishing announcements of upcoming events, volunteer requests, synopses of the issues, and results of candidate surveys and interviews in newsletters and bulletins.
  • Television and radio talk shows, community service programs, and local cable channels can provide an ideal opportunity to talk about the issues, the project, and the results. Call in and talk about proportional voting for appropriate shows and guests.
  • Invite reporters to attend and cover events such as issue and candidate forums. Ask questions designed to raise the issue of proportional voting, whenever possible.
  • Talk to features editors at your local papers. They may be willing to write, or to allow you to write, a longer article about the project or the issues.
