Years ago, P. Diddy asked us (and millions of others) to pledge to “Rock the Vote”—and we took it to heart. We vote in every election, whether it’s to elect our local school board representatives or the next president of the United States. This isn’t the case for everyone, though.
Still, presidential election years historically have the highest voter turnout. According to FairVote, a nonpartisan nonprofit organization focused on electoral reform in the U.S., roughly 60 percent of the voting-eligible population has voted in recent presidential election years, while only around 40 percent has voted in midterm elections, with an even greater drop-off of voters in odd year and local elections.
This is similarly reflected in promotional products usage for campaigns—so it’s a good year to get in the game. Whether it’s a postcard from a candidate asking for your vote, a handout enumerating the candidate’s platform or a pin that shows the voter’s support for the candidate, campaigns and promotional products go hand-in-hand. We may not yet know which names will be on the ballot come November, but we do know promotional products are a sure bet for ushering campaigns—and your company sales—to the next level. Here are four ways to come out with a win this election year—and years to follow.
