We believe your voice is heard when your vote is counted, and that our country would be a better place if more people cast a ballot. That’s why we work to increase turnout in U.S. elections, with a focus on communities with historically low voting rates.


How It Works

Turnout Nation equips people who care deeply about voting - people we call Captains - with the tools and info they need to mobilize their personal networks, and ultimately get more Americans to the polls. Your job, as a member of our community, is vital, but straightforward. Here’s how it works:

Download the App

Download the app and create an account.


Enter Names of Your 10

Enter the names of 10 people, the 10 you’ll work with to ensure they vote.

Ensure They're Registered

If any of them are flagged as not registered, you’ll work with them to get registered - we’ll give you the info you need. 

Inform & Energize

Talk with your 10 and get them to commit to voting. Use the app to share important voting info with them.

Our Approach Works Better

In randomized controlled trials, our method of friend-to-friend organizing was tested against traditional get-out-the-vote efforts, and blew them out of the water. Since then, we’ve continued to make waves:

  • 10x more effective than door-to-door canvassing

  • Increases turnout by 13.2% - largest GOTV effect measured in 2 decades

  • Safe and effective even during a pandemic

According to a Scientific American OpEd, we showed “the largest impacts on turnout of any experimentally tested get-out-the-vote study in recent memory.”

There's no doubt about it that we're living through a scary time, but it's these times where I turn to my friends. During our FaceTime catchups, we laugh, share struggles, and ground one another. These are my people, and I want them to be represented. If people choose not to vote only a fraction of the population are making decisions that affect how we live, and that's the opposite of what democracy was made to be." - Sofia from Massachusetts

“An order of magnitude” better than traditional methods” - Don Green PhD Columbia

One App That Does It All

Use our app as a tool to mobilize your friends: it helps you ensure they're registered correctly and lets you easily share accurate and up-to-date voting info. The app also provides tips to help get people to the polls, and gives you real people to turn to for questions.

In-app support for getting people registered

Shareable voting info, like polling locations and state-specific vote-by-mail instructions

Tips & tricks for how to best organize and energize your network


Our founder, a pro-democracy activist, recognized that increased voter turnout means a more representative government, one that truly works “for the people.” He founded our non-profit to help ensure more American’s have their voices heard, and, in 2018, Turnout Nation went from concept to reality.
