Faith & Freedom Coalition Volunteers Reach 3.4 Million Voters in Two Million Homes
Volunteers Have Visited Two Million Homes With 5 Days Left Before Mid-Term Elections
Duluth, GA – Faith & Freedom Coalition volunteers have reached 3,434,023 voters of faith at their two millionth door yesterday with five days remaining before the 2018 midterm election. As of yesterday, Faith & Freedom field team members have visited 2,020,014 homes of faith-based voters in advance of the election.
The home visits are concentrated in 21 states targeting mid-to-high propensity voters with a turnout score of 5 or above, as well as voters that data analytics have identified as evangelicals or Roman Catholics who self-identify as pro-life, pro-marriage and pro-family. Using a smartphone app that locates faith-based voters using mapping software and enhanced voter lists, a total of 2,236 volunteers and 350 paid staff operating out of 39 field offices from California to West Virginia are knocking on doors, hanging door hangers, passing out voter guides, and using customized scripts to interact with voters based on their specific issue burdens.
In addition, Faith & Freedom has reached 13.4 million voters with voter education mail, has placed 26 million digital ads on social media platforms, and is delivering 28 million emails and text messages to encourage Christian voters to go to the polls. Text messages provide voters with links to nonpartisan voter guides and mapping software that direct voters to polling locations. Faith & Freedom volunteers will also make an estimated 450,000 get-out-the-vote calls this week in a dozen key states and 32 key Congressional districts.
Jean-Marc Katzeff of Naples, Florida, a volunteer team leader in the Sunshine State whose team has knocked on over 50,000 doors in southwest Florida said, “I’m extremely proud of the work that our team has done in Florida to speak directly with a record number of voters of faith at their homes and encourage them to go to the polls. We’ve seen first-hand the enthusiasm of Christian conservatives throughout the state and fully expect them to vote on November 6th.”
“Our state and local leaders and volunteers are executing a state-of-the-art get-out-the-vote program that combines shoe leather politics with cutting-edge data analytics,” said Executive Director Tim Head. “Home visits featuring personal interaction with actual voters are the lodestone of our ground game. When we set a goal to visit two million households in 2018, I never thought we would reach it ahead of schedule. With five days to go, we will keep our foot on the gas and finish strong in reaching every voter we can and get them to the polls.”
Faith & Freedom’s 2018 voter education program is the most ambitious directed at voters of faith in a midterm election in modern political history. An estimated 181 million voter contacts will be executed by Election Day, with millions undertaken by volunteers at their church, their home-town and their neighborhood in the closing days.
