Washington, D.C. – Permanent progressive organizing hub For Our Future is proud to have driven a surge of Democratic voter turnout in Wisconsin, Michigan, Nevada, and Pennsylvania –the tipping point states that will put Joe Biden and Kamala Harris over the finish line.
For Our Future played a pivotal role in the election by building relationships with sporadic voters in these battleground states since 2016. Our team had boots on the ground – organizing, engaging, persuading, and mobilizing voters – on the doors, on the phones, and online as we adapted to the realities of campaigning in a pandemic.
Through the final stretch of GOTV, For Our Future was back on the ground with safe, contactless canvassing operations that targeted hard-to-reach voters who will ultimately decide this election.
Since October 1 alone, For Our Future made over 900,000 knocks in Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. All told, For Our Future made nearly 6 million calls, and sent over 5.5 million SMS to targeted voters in these four states, resulting in almost 700,000 one-on-one conversations with voters.
Said For Our Future’s CEO Justin Myers, “We are elated to see a record number of people casting ballots for Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and our values. While there are millions of votes left to count, we will come out on top because we didn’t leave any vote on the table. We aggressively reached out on the doors, by phone, mail, text, and Facebook to ensure as many people participated in the election as safely as possible.”
He continued, “Our focused organizing in these tipping point states allowed us to reach the exact members of the electorate who will carry Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to the White House. We look forward to having the Biden team’s back as they set out to tackle the challenges of unemployment, affordable health care, racial injustice, and more of the issues that matter most to our communities as we recover from this pandemic.”
