Progressive Turnout Project is bringing on paid Field Representatives, an independent contractor role, this year to talk with voters across the country about the upcoming midterm elections.
We know that having in person, face-to-face conversations about voting is one of the most effective ways to increase voter turnout and support for Democrats, so we are relying on our Field Representatives to get out and have these important conversations through door-to-door canvassing in the community. Having these conversations will be critical in rallying support for progressive candidates and elected officials who are fighting for working families across the country.
Our innovative Distributed Organizing program draws on the initiative and energy of community members, Democratic activists and supporters who want to get involved in the political process whenever they are able, allowing us to organize anywhere, anytime.
As opposed to working out of and reporting to a campaign office, our Distributed Organizing Program allows our paid independent contractors (Field Representatives) to work in any community, including their own! Field Representatives will go door-to-door canvassing in their own neighborhoods across the country to turn Democrats out to the polls using remote, digital voter outreach tools.
For the December 6, 2022 Georgia runoff election, Progressive Turnout Project will run a distributed canvassing program in suburban, exurban, and rural areas of Georgia.
Yes! We are paying our field reps for each complete turf assignment that they choose to do. We are compensating the completed project at the agreed fee of $75 or $100, depending on when turf assignments are completed during the day and week:
Field Representatives for the Georgia runoff can work their own schedule, starting on November 14 and ending on Election Day, December 6.
