Cutting-edge political strategies to reach your supporters and move them to take action.

 

Founded in Portland, Oregon in 1999...

In addition to core field services like ballot qualification, canvassing, and voter registration, we also offer social media marketing, supporter list-building, email blast management, and online fundraising services.

Our founding mission was to guarantee a living wage for signature gatherers, and we were the first in the industry to do so. Since then, we've collected signatures to increase the minimum wagelegalize medical and recreational marijuana, pass clean energy legislation, and restrict predatory payday loan practices.

Signature Gathering

± Signature Gathering

The ballot measure is a powerful tool for bringing about positive change. Ballot measures provide a way to make important changes to our community even when powerful interests block them in the legislature. We can earn your campaign access to the ballot with no hassle at an affordable rate, while ensuring that your campaign is delivering consistent messages and making a positive impression on voters.

± Canvassing

Canvassing means meeting voters where they are and providing them the information you want them to have. Democracy Resources has knocked on millions of doors having one-on-one conversations with voters in states around the country. Whether its educating voters about progressive issues or working to elect candidates – we have the track record and skills to ensure your campaign’s field effort is a success.

± Voter Registration

Democracy isn’t a spectator sport… and only registered voters get to play. All too often important issues or popular candidates are stymied by low voter turnout. The first step in getting people to vote is getting them registered. Our team has the field strength and game plan to run a successful voter registration drive. Whether on its own or in combination with a campaign we can help you register the voters needed to make a real difference in your campaign.

± DIGITAL CAMPAIGNS

We specialize in building online presence on behalf of our partner organizations. Whether you are interested in growing an email list, gathering hundreds of thousands of signatures online to pressure elected officials, building a large, successful social media presence on Facebook and Twitter, or complementing your development team's fundraising efforts, we have the expertise and resources to get it done.

± VOLUNTEER COORDINATION

Campaigns inevitably involve a complex, evolving mix of paid staff and volunteers. Democracy Resources has more than a decade of experience managing and recruiting volunteers to ensure that they make a positive contribution to the campaign. Whether it’s gathering signatures, canvassing, or making phone calls, we can direct your volunteer effort, allowing the campaign to focus the efforts of the paid staff on the most critical work at hand: getting the votes needed to win!

± OPPOSITION OVERSIGHT

Winning a campaign requires understanding your opponent’s tactics and strategy. Democracy Resources has pioneered groundbreaking opposition oversight programs that ensure that you know what your opposition is up. Uncovering fraud and misconduct while it’s being committed can mean the difference between having to spend millions of dollars defending democracy or using those resources to advance your agenda.
