What counts for campaign hours? Well, almost anything you do for the Republican Party that is not part of your primary income. Rules of thumb for counting hours:
1) Planning – any time you spend planning or preparing for a meeting, fundraiser, or attending any Republican function counts.
2) Organizing – any time you spend printing, addressing, stuffing, e-mailing, or filing counts
3) Travel Time – the time from when you left your house till you arrive counts and the time from when you leave home counts. This includes driving to our monthly meetings.
4) Conducting – any time you spend conducting a training or conducting a committee meeting counts.
5) Training – any time you spend at a training seminar for the Republican Party or TFRW counts.
6) Time at all club meetings, board and committee meetings, Republican Conventions, and fundraisers counts.
7) Campaigning – any time you spend block walking, making phone calls, working the polls, volunteering at headquarters, running for office, or volunteering at a candidates headquarters counts.
8) NEW! Paid Political hours as long as it is NOT your MAIN Source of Income.
For example, you may now count time as a paid election official, working for the ballot board, poll watching, or working for a candidate part-time.
These are any calls you make to Get Out The Vote, Register Voters, or any Republican Party or Club Business.
