    6. Broadcast Campaigning Roles Clearly Defined • Candidate is the messenger • Volunteers are participants • Voters are passive receptors
    7. Broadcast Campaigning • Voters are alienated from the process • Voters feel disconnected • Voters are cynical and don’t trust the message • Voters are not engaged
    8. Broadcast Campaigning The messenger becomes the listener. The listener becomes the messenger. Stories are told and shared. Donors become fundraisers. Everyone participates. Everyone can play every role.
    9. Participatory Campaigning Use these technologies to: • Build relationships among supporters • Create a campaign community • Engage citizens in the process • Turn every supporter into a volunteer • Provide tools for campaigning from any place at any time • Share everything to build trust • Get your message out, unfiltered
