Impact

Sometimes all you need to do is ask.

Democrats who got our texts were 200% more likely to file

We reduced the likelihood that a race is uncontested by 10%

Each recruited candidate costs us around $223

Proven Results

We use randomized control trials, the gold standard in data analysis, to show the difference our model has on candidate filing rates and the number of uncontested races.
