Initially championed by the Obama campaign, and proven to be successful method, Integrated Voter Engagement seems to be the new way to get voters out to the polls.  Non-profit group, SCOPE is aiming at increasing voter turnout in South LA communities by using IVE.  In my opinion it just seems like guerrilla style word of mouth but thats just my opinion.  IVE groups train community members to reach out to their peers in a continuous, ongoing effort that increases the number of voters and leads to policy changes. The most effective IVE organizations add new people to the voter registration rolls, educate voters about election issues, make sure new and unlikely voters actually cast their ballots, and ensure that misinformation and intimidation don’t inhibit people from voting. In addition, their work has a long-term impact by developing local leaders and involving people in shaping the public policy decisions that affect their lives.
