VOTER TURNOUT FELLOWS
Progressive Turnout Project’s 2020 Turnout Fellows program will empower 100 Democratic campaigns across 33 states to engage voters and deliver victories for Congressional candidates.
The Turnout Fellows program funds and trains local staff — like field directors, organizers, finance directors, digital staff, and youth vote coordinators — in the final weeks leading up to the election. In addition to paying Fellows’ salaries, we train Fellows on the fundamentals of different aspects of running campaigns, including how to build field programs from the bottom up, how to build a political narrative, and best practices for direct voter contact and volunteer recruitment.
Delivering victories for 100 campaigns across 33 states
Our first Turnout Fellows program in 2018 funded 121 Fellows on 52 Democratic congressional campaigns. 2018 Fellows have gone on to work for other campaigns, members of Congress, and progressive organizations including Progressive Turnout Project.
