Voter to Voter is a project of The Voter Network. We ask volunteer Ambassadors to connect with people they already know: family, friends, or co-workers, to encourage them to vote.
Studies have found that this is much more effective than hearing from strangers, and our results bear this out.
Voter to Voter is Effective
We piloted this effort for the 2018 primary elections in Kansas, and we were a bit stunned by the results. And in the general election, despite a record high 56% turnout statewide, Voter to Voter turned out 82% of voters in the program. In the 2019 Municipal and local elections, Voter to Voter turned out twice as many voters as the general population and in 2020, 91% of the people we talked to voted, compared to 71% statewide.
Voter to Voter is Easy
Our online tool brings you the power of public voter data, the same information political parties and candidates use. With just a web browser, on desktop or mobile, you can see if your friends, family, or co-workers have voted yet, and remind them of the importance of voting. As an Ambassador, you will have a personal dashboard on this site. On that dashboard, you can add the people you know, connect them to public voter data, and then encourage them through the process of voting.
Voter to Voter is Private
We value the privacy of our Voter Ambassadors, and more importantly, the privacy of the friends, family, and co-workers they add to Voter to Voter. We will not use any personal information for any purpose other than Voter to Voter, and will not use any information about voters (family, friends, co-workers) for any purpose at all. Any information about voting history is public data made available by the Kansas Secretary of State. Read our privacy statement here.
We Support You
Ambassadors are the lifeblood of our program. The Voter to Voter project and staff will support you the whole way! We have online communities, weekly video chats, and regular emails full of tips and ideas, reminders about important dates, and suggested actions. In addition, we hold trainings throughout the election season, and you’re just an email away from personal help! Get in touch at [email protected]
Joining is easy, too!
You can create a team, join someone else's team, or join our team as an individual! Once you're in, you can start adding people you know to your dashboard, checking on their progress through this election, and encouraging them to get out to vote!
