Organizing A “Watch Party!”

Organizing a “Watch Party” to watch primary returns, presidential debates or the November presidential election returns can be a fun and easy way to engage your employees, colleagues or fellow chapter members. Here are a few pointers when organizing a watch party.

  • If at work, get approval from HR and senior management.
  • Use an easily accessed area that can accommodate a large group.
  • Make sure to have enough educational and voter registration materials available for all staff.
  • Organize a group of Team Leaders to help during the event.
  • Create an agenda that lists all GOTV activities.
  • Distribute information of the rally companywide to encourage maximum participation.
  • Provide refreshments for employees.
  • Have the company leadership such as the CEO or president speak with the employees and reinforce the importance of voting.
  • Keep it FUN, EDUCATIONAL and INTERACTIVE!
  • Think about offering giveaways for your participants! Need some ideas, check out the SHRMStore’s election gear located HERE.
