Join the Common Cause Action Team
Six in ten Americans send and receive text messages. That means we can use text messages to reach people we might not be able to connect with otherwise, in a format we already know they’re comfortable using. Textbanking is a great platform for those with previous peer-to-peer experience who are ready to master the latest voter contact technology.
In order to volunteer, all you will is a smartphone, tablet, or computer with an internet connection.

Who You Will Be Talking To
Through our tools, you’ll be connected with registered voters in target states across the country. This year, we think it is really important to make sure everyone stands up to be counted, so we are focusing on talking to a variety of voters, from never-voters to semi-frequent voters, to remind them to vote in November. We know that we can’t win this cycle without support up and down the ballot.
