Professional Political Field and Consulting Services
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 those changes in the legislature. We can earn your campaign access to the ballot with no hassle at an affordable rate. Our model is unique in the industry: we pay our employees a living wage. This allows you to ensure 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.
Digital Campaign Management – 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.
Opposition Oversight – Winning a campaign requires understanding your opponent’s tactics and strategy. Democracy Resources has pioneered groundbreaking opposition oversight and open debate advocacy programs that ensure that you know what your opposition is up to and that they don’t have the ability to operate unopposed in a vacuum. 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 and Democracy Resource’s fraud watch program can help make that happen.
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!
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. The team at Democracy Resources have 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 community.
Strategy and Planning – Democracy Resource’s campaign team have decades of experience in designing and guiding successful grassroots campaigns in states across the country. If you are considering moving forward with a ballot measure or other grassroots campaign, let us help you develop the strategy needed to make it a success. The resources you invest up-front in planning and strategy will pay off down the line in a successful campaign.
