Help Your Friends Vote
Voting is a powerful tool when enough people participate. Casting each individual vote can be very difficult. In these unprecedented times, having the help and encouragement of a trusted friend or family member can make all the difference. By becoming a Voting Captain, you can inspire others to help people in their communities make their voices heard.
How It Works
Turnout Nation equips people who are passionate about voting, Voting Captains, with the tools and info they need to mobilize their personal networks, and ultimately get more Americans to the polls. Here’s how it works:
Attend a 20 Minute Zoom Orientation
on how to use our app to help your friends vote.
Add Your Friends
Add the names of people you want to help vote. We won't sell anyone's data.
Ensure They're Registered
If any of them are not registered, you’ll work with them to get registered - we’ll give you the info you need.
Make an Impact
An organizer will support you and the app will ensure you never miss an important deadline
Become an Organizing Fellow
Organizing Fellows recruit and support a group of Voting Captains in their community before a local election. In addition to volunteer organizing, fellows also engage in research, planning, and outreach. Fellowships are 3-6 months depending on location.
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 can't 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."

Our Approach Works
In randomized controlled trials, our method of Voting Captain organizing was tested against traditional get-out-the-vote efforts:
10x more effective than door-to-door canvassing
Increases turnout by 13.2% - largest GOTV effect measured in 2 decades
Can be done safely online during the pandemic
