Increase Turnout Among Rural Voters of Color in 2020

This year, Reclaim Our Vote plans to expand its volunteer base and work towards a 20 percent increase in turnout among voters of color in at least four states, and a significant percentage increase in others.  We started working towards this goal in 2019, in North Carolina and Virginia; in 2020 our target states are North Carolina, Texas, Arizona, Alabama, Mississippi and Georgia; our tools include:

  • postcards
  • phone banks
  • textbanks
  • geofencing
  • GOTV billboards in key areas
  • canvassing
  • rides to the polls
  • election monitoring
