During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
While the pandemic may prevent us from being politically active in real life, it won’t stop us from mobilizing online!
Turnout Nation is a non-partisan network of passionate people working to increase turnout in US elections. Our movement is carried by Captains, volunteers who recruit 10 people in their social circle to vote. The main responsibility of a Captain is to get their friends to commit to voting by creating an ongoing dialog about the importance of voting and how to get it done. They use our easy to access resources to provide up-to-date information on registration and voting to their connections until election day.
We are invested in this methodology because it works! In a randomized control trial run by Dr. Donald Green from Columbia University, our relational organizing was proven to be 10x more effective than door-to-door canvassing.
How you can join the network:
Join our Captain community by finding 10 family members, friends, and acquaintances you’ll get to vote! Captains enter their 10 names in our android/iOS app to check their registration and voting status, and can recruit other Captains, thereby multiplying their impact.
We only use data to give Captains this information and will never sell data. We will never ask for the contact information of voters or attempt to contact them. Protecting the information of Captains and voters is our top priority.
Captains that want to contribute more time outside of helping their 10 voters can Join the Support Team and help with research, content creation, and other technical projects, and help us recruit more Captains in our target states.
Why it Matters:
Just over half US citizens voted in 2016 and states are increasingly decided by razor thin margins. By using an effective turnout method, you can have a big impact. The work doesn’t stop after the 2020 presidential election. Our community is invited to keep using our platform to increase voter turnout for other local and statewide initiatives and elections.
Turnout Nation is a non-partisan, fiscally sponsored project under the Social Good Fund, a 501(C3) non-profit.

Turnout Nation helps people get their friends to vote. These people are called Captains, and they commit to identifying and encouraging 10 people they know to get to the polls.
Turnout Nation is a network of engaged Americans looking to increase turnout. We use a method of relational organizing that helps activists commit to get ten of their friends to register and vote. Relational organizing simply means that activists focus on supporting the people they know to register as opposed to stranger-to-stranger efforts. It relies on the strength of social bonds and accountability.
We'll work with your schedule.
This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.
