In 2016, Campaigns Shed Clipboards for iPhones and Tablets

Like Never Before, Political Campaigns Are Using Mobile Technology to Engage Voters


WASHINGTON - Like never before, campaigns are foregoing paper lists and clipboards for their iPhone and tablets - making voter outreach simpler, quicker, and more efficient. This month, NGP VAN, the leading technology provider to Democratic and progressive campaigns, released a new video demonstrating how progressive organizations and Democratic campaign volunteers can use the MiniVAN app on their own smartphones and tablets to more effectively engage voters. 

“Canvassers are now able to navigate neighborhoods and enter data, and organizers no longer need to deal with data entry, printing off walk sheets, and photocopying precinct maps.” says Amanda Coloumbe, General Manager of Organizing at NGP VAN. “If you're serious about canvassing, MiniVAN and MiniVAN Manager are smarter, more accountable, and much more user-friendly tools to run a smoother, more organized field campaign.”

Already this year over 700 organizations and campaigns are using miniVAN - including both Democratic Presidential campaigns, several major labor unions, and many state and local Democratic candidates. Watch the video and read our new blog post to learn how miniVAN transforming the 2016 elections.
