How to Win Elections-Insight from Mark Grebner (PEG Event)

Last minute notice- PEG invites us to a talk by Mark Grebner of Practical Political Consulting, an experienced campaigner. Mark had an insight that “nonvoters are ashamed of abstaining but believe they can get away with it because no one knows whether they in fact voted.” He will cite the results of using peer pressure to get people to vote. Direct mailing campaigns that tell prospective voters that their neighbors will be told if they actually do vote have been as much as ten times as effective as any other method studied, yet they aren’t being widely utilized due to the recipient’s complaints.

Come learn why these campaigns work, why they aren’t utilized, and join the discussion as to whether they should be. Bring your questions and opinions.

 Mark has worked with hundreds of campaigns and has been featured in the New York Times as the source for Michigan voter lists.
This presentation may be the most thought-provoking and entertaining one you will attend this year. Mark is eccentric, brilliant, irreverent, opinionated, and funny. For one of his 43 successful election campaigns for Ingham County commissioner his advertisements included ”Buy one politician, get one free”, bumper stickers ”No worse than the rest” and refrigerator magnets ”He may be a fool, but he’s our fool”.
