Members Only Survey: Does Your Organization Use the VAN?

September 17, 2014

Over the past few months, many of our members have expressed interest in learning more about the Voter Activation Network (VAN).

The VAN is a voter database containing information on voters for the purpose of assisting your get out the vote (GOTV) efforts and other areas of your campaigns. It provides demographic information on voters as well as voting history, party affiliation and charitable contributions. In addition to GOTV, it can also be used for fundraising, recruitment and issue tracking purposes.

In short, the VAN can make a huge difference in your campaigns. That’s why we’d like to know how you use — or if you’re interested in using — the VAN.

Would you help us by filling out a quick survey?

We are seeking information from you in hopes that the Federation will be able to assist our members to potentially access or make better use of the VAN, particularly as we undertake an exciting new modeling project with the Gill Foundation.

This is a preliminary exploration so we can’t promise anything, but we plan to look at the options available.

We’d love to know more about your use and interest in the VAN. Please take a couple minutes to complete the survey here.

Please have only one person at your organization fill out the survey. And if you have already taken the time to fill this out, thank you!
