Our 2020 strategy

Our 2020 goal: take back the Senate and the White House. Specifically, we’re reaching the voters Democrats need to win in these races:

We’re making our biggest investment ever — in dollars, in staff, and in voters. 

Proven programs

Phone calls, personalized letters, plan to vote

We focus on meaningful voter contact because it works: our field programs boosted turnout by an average of 10.4 percent in the historic 2018 midterms.

Here’s how we make the biggest impact on voter turnout:

  • We use the latest predictive analytics to identify infrequent Democratic voters, weighting vote history, demographic information and other data to identify a voter’s likelihood to turn out and vote for Democrats.
  • We hire local teams who know the issues most important to their neighbors.
  • Our program is built around multiple, in-depth conversations with every voter. In 2020, that means calling voters at home, writing them letters — and following up to make sure they have what they need to make a plan and vote, especially by mail.

Our Field Work

Since our founding in 2015, Progressive Turnout Project has knocked over 3 million doors to elect Democrats. In 2018, we were on the ground in 18 battleground House districts, boosting turnout by 10.4 percent on average.
