Voting should be easy. Until is is, helping your friends vote is the most effective way to increase voter turnout. Turnout Nation is a community of civically engaged Captains that pledge to help at least 10 of their friends vote in the 2020 election and beyond if you choose.
In these unprecedented times, having the help and encouragement of a trusted friend or family member can make all the difference. By becoming a Captain, you can inspire others to help people in their communities make their voices heard.
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 family members, friends, and acquaintances you’ll get to vote! Connect with us on volunteer match and we'll help you get signed up for a one time 20 minute training.
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.
Turnout Nation is a non-partisan, fiscally sponsored project under the Social Good Fund, a 501(C3) non-profit. Organizers provide support and tools along the way as well as verified community service hours. We're nonpartisan and will not sell or your data under any circumstances. We're conducting another trial with Columbia University to test this method in a general election. We offer the option to be a part of this trial and can ensure that your data will still be anonymous and protected.
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 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.
