Friends Help Friends Vote

Talking to your friends and family is the most effective way to increase voter turnout. By volunteering as a Voting Captain, you’ll get reminded about key voter registration and mail-in ballot deadlines to help the people you know vote. 


How It Works

Turnout Nation equips Voting Captains, with resources to help mobilize their family and friends:

Organizing Fellowships

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.

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
