About VoterCall

The election on November 2nd 2004 may be the most important of our lives, but millions of people, including many of those most affected by unjust government policies, will not show up to vote on election day. VoterCall provides a simple way for individuals anywhere to make a huge difference - placing brief phone calls to encourage low-income, minority and young voters to go vote.

Non-partisan groups across America have registered over 2 million new young, low income and minority voters for the 2004 elections. If all these people vote, they can have a powerfully progressive impact on American democracy, compelling our leaders to bring greater justice to our country, and peace to the world. Experts agree that calling voters can make all the difference between them voting and not voting.

We’ve put these newly registered voters into a database. People can login through our website and pull up voters’ phone numbers and details, and an easy to follow call script. They then just call the voters, record how the conversation went – did they say they’ll vote? do they need a ride to the polls? do they not want to be contacted again? – and submit the record back into the database. People can call from anywhere they have a phone and access to the web – alone at home, or together with friends or colleagues. They can call as many, or as few people as they like – there’s no minimum or maximum commitment required. VoterCall also allows people to keep track of the number of voters they’ve called. It also empowers people to recruit other volunteers and form a “virtual” team.

VoterCall is entirely non-partisan. We do not know the political affiliation of the voters in our database, nor are we trying to persuade them to vote for a particular candidate or party.

VoterCall is a project of Res Publica, with support from TrueMajority and the November 2 Campaign.
