What is a Telephone Town Hall?

Telephone Town Halls are a time-efficient and cost-effective way to engage
voters in an interactive conversation with thousands of people at once.

How Chism Strategies Conducts Telephone Town Halls

We offer a turnkey service to get your message out, allowing you to converse directly with voters.

We handle all IT and logistical arrangements from beginning to end. Chism Strategies uses the experience of hundreds of telephone town halls to plan, script, and execute your outreach with the capability to engage young voters on their cell phones.

We put together a team for you: moderator, screeners, and technicians ready to ensure timely and worry-free execution. Our team works with you before, during, and after your telephone town hall, including robocall, text invites, and reminders.

In addition to the number of telephone town halls in these states, we have also completed 88 multi-state telephone town halls.

A Chism Strategies Telephone Town Hall Includes:

  • A 30-second recorded call the night before telling your constituents about the upcoming forum
  • Assistance with targeting and acquiring the voter file
  • A 30-minute training session
  • Sample scripting for recordings; introductory and closing remarks
  • On-site setup and systems tests before the forum
  • Telephone Town Hall moderator and call screeners (if needed)
  • Standard 60-minute Telephone Town Hall duration (longer forum times are available)
  • Post forum metrics on the number of participants, the average length of participation, responses to polling questions, and a map pinpointing the participants on the call from your district
  • Sound files in .wav format, including all voicemails left and a recording of the entire forum
  • Return data for your voter file from the invite calls and the forum with call results appended

What to Expect in Your Chism Strategies Telephone Town Hall Results

We provide a report the next day with all project details, including an interaction analysis with peak attendees, the number of callers entering the queue and receiving a screening, and how many callers went live.

Each report includes the number of outbound and inbound calls, the number of callers each minute, and an analysis of the poll questions.
