Program Will Utilize Digital Organizing, Mail, Voter Contact Over Text and Phones To Ensure Democratic-Leaning Constituencies Understand Their Voting Options
Today, DCCC Chairwoman Cheri Bustos announced the DCCC's $9 million investment in voter education programs ahead of November's election. From now through Election Day, the DCCC will utilize mail, digital, text, and direct voter contact over the phone to educate voters on options for casting their ballots and to develop plans for voting. The DCCC will also use mail, targeted phone banks and text messages to keep voter abreast of their options and make sure they are fully aware of any recent adjustments to the law in their local jurisdictions.
'This election is unprecedented in so many ways, and our approach to reaching voters must meet that moment,' DCCC Chair Cheri Bustos said. ' This is why this education push across, mail, digital and direct voter contact is so critical to our efforts to protect and expand House Democrats' firewall against Republican attacks on Americans' health care.'
The voter education program is the culmination of months of DCCC preparation for an election during a worldwide pandemic.
The DCCC entered September with $104.7M cash on hand - $35 million than it had at the beginning of September 2018.
