This voter registration drive, organized by Civitech, aims to reach 150,000 potential Democrats who are eligible to vote but who need to be registered ahead of the November 3 election.
This Wisconsin Voter Registration Program is a way to register up to 50,000 Wisconsin voters by long distance before the November election.
It is a well-organized, funded and proven effort that works through a two-step process.
Step 1: Civitech sends a mailer to the 150,000 potential voters.
Step 2: Volunteers make follow-up phone calls to help people register to vote.
Originated in Texas in 2018 by Civitech/Register2Vote, this program had a 30% success rate. They reached out to 534,210 Texans and registered 156,738 (30%) over an 8-week period. Of those registrants, 112,217 (72%) actually voted. Translated into the numbers for Wisconsin, we could reap 36,000 new votes!
In 2016, Donald Trump secured his win in the Electoral College by winning Wisconsin with a slim margin of less than 23,000 votes. So every vote we secure for Vice President Biden is a chip out of that Trump vote total.
All you have to do is make the calls, a total of 14-28 hours of them over the 7 week period designated for this process.
