Tennessee is ranked 49th in voter turnout, and 45th in voter registration.
We know that communities are strong when citizens are engaged. In 2017, we formed a statewide coalition of over 30 nonprofits, churches, schools and civic groups, with one goal in mind: to register the 750,000 unregistered Tennessee voters.
Now, we need your help getting them to the polls.
Here's what you can do:
What is Hustle?
Hustle is an app that makes it incredibly easy & fast for organizers to connect with their target audience via text messaging.
How Does It Work?
Start texting: Hustle's simple web and mobile apps allow teams to text 1000+ people an hour. Contacts see a normal SMS message from a local number.
Keep the conversation going: With Hustle, it’s like talking to someone one-on-one. Organizers will get real-time responses through the app, allowing us to respond to questions, provide more information, and keep the conversation going using pre-written scripts created by our team.
What is Phone Banking?
Phone banking is one of the most reliable forms of voter engagement. Phone banking allows you to call voters remotely, using our online app.
How Does It Work?
Volunteers will be given access to a virtual phone bank, a web page that provides phone numbers and scripts to use. Volunteers can opt in any time during the available days and hours each week, and can log call results directly onto the web app.
Canvass and Join Events
What is Canvassing?
Our canvass teams knock doors in their communities to talk directly with voters. Through the mobile app called MiniVan, we provide walkable maps and scripts to use at the door.
