VOTER TURNOUT FELLOWS
In 2020, Progressive Turnout Project’s Turnout Fellows program empowered 100 Democratic campaigns for Congress across 33 states.
The Turnout Fellows program funds and trains local staff, like field directors, organizers, finance directors, digital staff, and youth vote coordinators.
In addition to paying Fellows’ salaries, we train Fellows on the fundamentals of different aspects of running campaigns — so the next generation of organizers knows 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.
1,027,000 voter-contact attempts
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.
