Win North Carolina with Automated Calling


North Carolina is a Triple Play state. Its 15 Electoral College votes are key to winning the White House in 2020, and Obama won in 2008. Senator Thom Tillis is one of the weakest incumbents in the country, so Democrat Cal Cunningham has a good chance to win the seat. Both the presidential and senate elections in North Carolina are considered a toss-up by the Cook Political Report. Down ballot races and gerrymandering issues will benefit from getting out the Blue vote in North Carolina; each state house is within 6 seats of flipping to Democrat. 

This new auto-dialer process automatically calls through lists to skip through voicemails, busy signals, and disconnected lines to connect you directly to voters. You can reach up to 10 times the number of voters than you normally would in the same amount of time!

The purpose of these calls is to identify swing voter voter preferences to ensure that we can focus efforts closer to the election where it will make the largest impact. We are also looking to build the in-state volunteer network.  North Carolinians are very willing to talk. 

Help us to WIN North Carolina in 2020!
