Frequently asked questions
What is a Voting Captain?
Someone who volunteers to get-out-the-vote by talking to their friends and family about making a voting plan.
Why should you become a Voting Captain?
You know your friends best. Having a quick chat about voting with a friend is more genuine and persuasive than getting endless calls and texts from strangers.
There's no pressure to talk about a specific candidate or issue. To amplify your impact, all you have to do is use Turnout Nation resources to help people make their voting plan. To collaborate with Voting Captains from around the country, join our community Slack space.
