DemLabs and Deliver My Vote are testing digital Pledge to Vote At Home cards to encourage more potential voters. This solution improves canvasser productivity and cut costs.

Design

A printed pledge card was re-created in digital form with the Survey123 app. Canvassers get the digital Pledge card through this link or by scanning a QR code. Try it by scanning this QR code with your smartphone camera.

Making the Pledge

Potential voters fill out the Pledge To Vote card with help from canvassers. Digital cards can also be shared on social media or shared as cards or as stickers with the QR code.


Processing

Pledges are automatically updated to a database and also displayed on a map. This eliminates the effort and time delay involved with collecting paper pledge cards and manually entering them. Information from the database can be exported to update a voter file, print pre-filled voter forms or Get-Out-The-Vote (GOTV) campaigns.


Deliver My Vote (DMV), is 501(c)(4) organization that increases voter turnout among low-propensity voters and traditionally disenfranchised populations. DMV designs “vote at home” campaigns with leading-edge data and analytics solutions and powerful voter contact methods and messages available.


Vote At Home

The National Vote at Home Institute is a non-profit, non-partisan 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to ensuring election security and putting voters’ needs first.

Vote at home is a proven way to bolster the security of elections, improve voter engagement, and reduce election-related costs.


Takeaway

Use Survey 123, canvassers and Vote At Home programs to increase voter participation.
