A real-world example of how patch through calls work.
Patch through calls work, just ask Iowa legislators.
Over the last twenty years, grassroots conservatives have been troubled by the inequity of the process of nominating Iowa Supreme Court Justices. Previous efforts to change it had failed however, even with Republican control of the legislature and Governor’s office.
In 2019, CampaignHQ worked on a patch through project for the FAMiLY Leader to pass this legislation.
We worked with their team to help them achieve their goals. At the start of their project, patch through calls were directed at 10 of the most influenceable lawmakers at the rate of 5 to 10 patch throughs per day over the span of three weeks. Based on the need to exert influence, some legislators received up to 70 patch through calls while others received only 10.
The effort to reform Iowa’s judicial system was successful when shortly thereafter the bill passed both chambers and was signed into law by Gov. Reynolds.
In the end, 90% of legislators receiving patch throughs ultimately voted in favor of the bill.
The FAMiLY Leader was outspent, out manned, and had the media working against them. With our help, they prevailed.
Legislators crave constituent input and are moved to action by hearing from people back home. A well-run patch through program is a impactful way to make a big change.
