While the pandemic may prevent us from being politically active in real life, it won’t stop us from mobilizing online. Turnout Nation is a non-partisan organization dedicated to increasing voter turnout. By becoming a Turnout Nation Captain, you can volunteer remotely to get more people to the polls in November 2020 and beyond.
As a Captain, you won’t be asked to phone bank a list of strangers or go knocking on doors. Instead, Turnout Nation helps you engage your own social network to turn out the vote. Captains recruit 10 friends, family, and acquaintances to cast their ballot. We give Captains state specific resources and ongoing support so they can guide their connections through the entire process, from registration to polling.
We are invested in this methodology because it works. In a randomized control trial run by Dr. Donald Green from Columbia University, relational organizing was proven to be 13% more effective than traditional methods. Just over half US citizens voted in 2016 and states are increasingly decided by razor thin margins. By using an effective turnout method, you can create a big impact.
The work doesn’t stop after the 2020 presidential election. Our community is invited to keep using our platform to increase voter turnout for other local and statewide initiatives and elections.
