OUR MISSION

How We’re Different

Progressive Turnout Project is a grassroots-funded organization with a single mission: get Democrats to the polls. We design, test, and execute specialized voter turnout programs targeting inconsistent Democratic voters in the most competitive districts in the country.

Democrats win when turnout is high

The best way to turn out voters is with one-on-one conversations.

Progressive Turnout Project is built around this truth, proven time and time again by researchers — including us. On average, our field work boosts voter turnout by more than 10 percent.

How does that happen? We talk to inconsistent voters who are likely Democrats, so they don’t need persuading on who to vote for. They just need a nudge, some information, and to hear from a real person. That means every eligible non-voter we’re able to reach brings Democrats closer to success on Election Day.

Compared to expensive TV ads — which research shows are ineffective at mobilizing voters — we have a much larger impact for our investment.

Our grassroots donors

Our programs are funded through grassroots donations by committed citizens like you — over 2 million donors giving an average of $16.35.

By pooling grassroots financial support, we’re able to build early, local programs that previously only presidential campaigns had been able to afford. Your contribution, no matter the amount, will help us reach even more Democratic voters in 2021 and beyond.
