What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

GOTV: Getting out the vote effectively

When election day looms it is time to assemble the information you have been capturing from voters throughout your campaign. Pulling segements of your voter database who have committed to vote for you, or segments that have expressed some support is the first step.
Once you have done this you can either contact these groups with specific messages by email, phone or face to face.
The other thing you will need to do is contact people who have expressed a desire to vote for you but might need help to get out the vote. Having a plan of action to help these people actually vote will involve teams that can drive or bus them to the polling station.
Finally, you will need to set up poll strikers or counters outside the polling stations to mark people who have committed to vote for you, as and when they arrive to vote. Cross referencing this list of people who have voted with the larger list of people who said they will vote, gives you a target list of people to contact directly as the election day goes on.
This is the essence of GOTV and our handy graphic should help you to understand the value of using political campaign software to manage this.
