From dynamic canvassing programs and multi-modal voter registration efforts to scaled relational organizing, we help campaigns win by building smart, efficient programs that allocate resources to where they’ll be most effective.
Strategic Program Development & Planning
The RFS team has designed and managed some of the largest campaign, organizing, and grassroots mobilization programs in the nation. Leading President Biden and the Democratic National Committee’s historic organizing effort in 2019 and 2020, we helped rewrite the playbook for how to register, persuade, educate, and mobilize voters in real-time.
We don’t just provide you with services–we work hand-in-hand to help your team grow, evolve and learn. The RFS team works with clients to:
Clearly define their strategic goals
Determine how to most effectively utilize budget and resources
Design and implement innovative, efficient programs
Deliver results, whether that’s registering new voters in a battleground state or leading a national advocacy program
Organizing Program Design & Management
Regardless of their scale, budget, or scope, every campaign and organization can leverage the power of grassroots organizing for maximum impact. At Revolution Field Strategies, we specialize in developing and executing customized volunteer-driven and hybrid programs that align with the unique needs and resources of each campaign. Our services cater to both COVID and post-COVID scenarios, ensuring adaptability and resilience. Whether it's program design, comprehensive staffing, or hands-on implementation, our dedicated team collaborates closely with yours, providing day-to-day support for a successful campaign.
Dynamic Voter Registration
Revolution designs and implements extensive, dynamic Voter Registration (VR) programs that can help to transform the electorate in communities big and small. We excel at traditional site-based and door-to-door VR programs, but also work with partner firms to develop and implement layered efforts that include digital and mail capabilities. Our VR programs are built simultaneously on both quantity and quality. We implement a comprehensive quality control process to ensure the form is valid, complete, and accurate.
RFS also builds unique programs that include extensive follow-up and contact with each newly-registered voter, including in-person, digital, mail, and phone contacts. Extensive data from recent cycles clearly indicates that consistent engagement and communication with individuals after they register significantly increases the likelihood that they ultimately vote. We design customized programs that build in planned engagements with voters beginning immediately upon their registration being completed.
With a wide-ranging presence from coast to coast, the RFS team has successfully visited over 4 million households in communities of all sizes. Our approach involves recruiting, training, and mobilizing local canvassers who possess an intimate familiarity with their own communities and excel in conveying the campaign's message effectively. Each canvasser undergoes a rigorous interview process, and receives thorough training, ongoing re-training, and on-the-job feedback, ensuring their adherence to the highest standards of qualitative and quantitative accountability. When partnering with RFS, you can trust that your campaign or organization will be exceptionally represented at every doorstep.
Our newest innovation, RFS has developed the most comprehensive, scalable paid relational mobilization program available, allowing campaigns to turbocharge their voter engagement efforts by hiring locally and utilizing organizers’ personal and community networks to register, engage, and mobilize voters. Our program allows campaigns to achieve multiple forms of engagement and multiple objectives via the same individuals. Not only is the effectiveness of each contact significantly greater than in a traditional program, but the cost per contact is significantly lower.
RFS recruits our relational organizers locally, so they bring not just a personal network, but an intimate knowledge of the community. Relational organizers match their personal networks to the campaign’s file, and are then supplemented with voters and unregistered members of her/his/their neighborhood and community. RFS and the campaign identify clear objectives for each individual being targeted, which can include registering (or re-registering) them to vote, signing up to vote by mail, getting them to commit to vote, or simply having a conversation about a candidate or key issues. Most importantly, the organizers contact the individuals in their personal universe through a variety of channels where they’re most likely to reach them–calls, texts, direct messages on social media, or stopping by their home. All data is tracked and tagged back to the campaign’s database. The result is a multifaceted program driven by impactful conversations that lead to tangible results.
Signature gathering has become a vital component of both issue-based and electoral campaigns, witnessing a steady rise in the number of ballot initiatives and petitions in each election cycle. At RFS, we recognize the significance of this process and offer comprehensive solutions to support your campaign. Our services encompass extensive training, meticulous oversight, and stringent quality control measures. To ensure utmost accuracy, we internally verify every signature collected by our proficient staff. With RFS by your side, you can confidently navigate the signature-gathering phase of your campaign, knowing that the integrity of each signature is upheld.
