Voting remains the most powerful civic action a U.S. citizen can take to make their voice heard and according to a 2019 Harvard case study, promoting civic responsibility “is good for business.”
Your current advocates and potential new supporters will be looking for election and voter information about this critical election. Be their one-stop resource with Phone2Action’s Civic Action Center, while launching or growing your grassroots advocacy network.
Engage current advocates
Phone2Action’s Civic Action Center is a one-stop shop for all election details. Advocates can:
Register to vote and check voter registration status
Supporters can enter their information and determine if they are currently registered to vote. If they are not registered, they will be given the option to register online or complete a paper registration.
Learn who’s running in their district
Advocates can enter their home address to find out their current elected officials as well as the candidates up for election, so they can make informed decisions.
View polling locations and election dates
If an advocate is registered to vote, they will be presented with a map with pre-filled directions from their home address to their nearest polling location. The site will also provide upcoming election dates (primaries and general elections) in the advocate’s state.
Find absentee ballot & early voting information
For voters unable to make it to the polls on election day, they can find out all the information they need to submit an absentee ballot or to vote early.
Attract new supporters
Provide a useful resource for supporters new to your organization while building brand equity and positive sentiment so you can mobilize them when the need arises. To do this, you can:
Direct users to your Civic Action Center with text keywords
Leverage easy-to-use text keywords (e.g., Text VOTENOW to 52886) in your GOTV promotions to drive traffic to your Civic Action Center.
Capture and keep data about new advocates to use in future advocacy campaigns
Integrated with the Phone2Action platform, the Civic Action Center allows organizations to pull the data from their GOTV efforts, including email and text opt-ins, into future outreach efforts.
Tap into new audiences with bilingual support
Available in both Spanish and English, the Civic Action Center enables you to reach a larger audience than you could with a monolingual tool.
Understand key metrics about people who visit your Civic Action Center, including total visits, total advocates engaged, text message opt-ins, and email opt-ins.
