Crafting a strong campaign survey is critical to any campaign, however you’re trying to touch voters. Lee Vasche opens up his voluminous bank of experience today to help your campaign!
This week we’re talking with Lee Vasche, founder of Triton Polling and Research. They’re a full-service survey, polling and market research firm with offices across the western United States. From non-profits to Fortune 500 companies to statewide political campaigns, Triton has done at least a bit of everything.
Lee has an eclectic mix of talents ranging from statistical analysis and advanced telecom systems to political organizing and database administration. Outside of the office, Lee spends his time traveling with his bride Courtney, skiing, scuba diving and enjoying the outdoors.
We’re going to cover a lot of ground in the interview today but the main areas we’re going to focus are ballot access and grassroots organizing. If you’re going to win, you gotta get on the ballot and a lot of candidates get that access through gathering petition signatures. Doing it the wrong way leads to headaches but Lee knows how to do it well.
On the grassroots side, we’re going to crack open Lee’s knowledge bank and get some of his top tips for organizing your ground efforts, maximizing efficiency and hitting your goals.
