MobilizeAmerica partnered with the Conor Lamb campaign for the final month to help the team scale their field operation. The campaign created a custom, VAN-integrated events feed that enabled them to:

  • Widely distribute events to interested in-state and out-of-state volunteers, with little organizer time investment required

  • Set up a national virtual phone bank event, where volunteers across the country could call voters from home, with organizers monitoring in real time

  • Partner with grassroots and national organizations to distribute events to hundreds of thousands of volunteers

Through the MobilizeAmerica platform, the campaign scheduled more than 4,000 volunteer shifts for the candidate, who won the election by fewer than 1,000 votes.

In November 2017, Democrats swept statewide offices in Virginia and flipped the most seats in the House of Delegates since 1899. 

In Virginia, volunteers scheduled through MobilizeAmerica:

  • Sent more than 1 million text messages
  • Made more than 100,000 calls
  • Knocked tens of thousands of doors
  • and helped flip 15 House of Delegates seats from red to blue

Virginia proved that successful field programs mobilize volunteers across the country, and we're excited to bring that vision to even more campaigns in 2018.
