Planning and hosting a campaign rally is a huge undertaking that takes a large and dedicated group of workers and volunteers. Still, most campaigners feel that the effort is worth it because it is a great way to get the word out about a cause, get the attention of the lawmakers or parties you are trying to impress upon, and also drives media attention. If your goal is to reach voters, increase the confidence of supporters to your cause, gain press and the attention of uninformed individuals, then planning a rally is a great option according to NGP Van.
NGP Van points out the many things to consider in the planning in the rally, everything from the timing to the location can make or break a successful event. You want your event to be as near the deciding date in order to have the biggest impact. A visible and easy to access location is important.

Technical details like signage, advertising, speakers, and a way to circulate information all has to be taken care of. Finally, getting the word out there via volunteers and support groups is necessary to get people on board.
