2020 Year in review

Our mission is to build solutions to reach today’s voters and empower tomorrow’s civic leaders. We spent this cycle developing new technology, collecting and enhancing political data, and sharing best practices across the ecosystem in order to help voters register, vote by mail, and get the information they need to show up to the polls.

In 2020, our core efforts were focused on:

Identification

Identifying those that are invisible to (or ignored by) traditional campaigning.

Mobilization

Accelerating voter registration and participation for every person, everywhere.

Accessibility

Democratizing costly political technology for candidates, campaigns and causes.

Transparency

Reporting on our results to improve our collective methods, inform the ecosystem, and build a better future.

How did we do?

In collaboration with more than 100 partners and clients, our technology enabled millions of voters to participate in the electoral process for a fraction of the cost of traditional efforts. We are thankful to have been able to continue our work to make it easier (and safer) to participate in politics, run a successful campaign, and make a measurable impact.

More confirmed registrations than ever before

We identified more than 12 million voters who are unregistered or incorrectly registered nationwide. Many of these voters are in the most vulnerable communities that are hard to reach through traditional methods, especially when COVID restricted outreach efforts.

In collaboration with dozens of partners and clients, we were able to reach millions of these voters with easy to complete and shareable tools.

More postage-paid participation

Facing the threat of a pandemic, the shortage of polling locations  and often the means to get to one  voters needed a way to safely participate. That’s why we developed tools to make it easy for voters to request a vote-by-mail application.

Building for a better 2021

This cycle we organized even when we couldn’t always gather.

Our bedrooms became war rooms. Our screens became our clipboards. Our mailboxes became ballot boxes. And our kids became our data interns.

This cycle we turned challenging moments into civic momentum.

New voices ran for office and won. More people registered to vote than ever before. And even more people made it to the polls.

And this cycle we won where it matters most.

We couldn’t always show our faces but we made our voices heard. We couldn’t always knock doors, but we did keep the House. We didn’t always feel safe, but we organized to protect our neighbors — and the nation.

After a year of progress, we’re looking to the future…
