Personal Voter Concierge Service – where friends help friends vote early (& dance!)
Vote with Us invited friends and family across the country to reach out if they needed help researching their ballot or figuring out their voting logistics game plan for the 2022 midterm elections.
Each voter who requested support received a personalized ballot research tool, 1:1 coaching, and a special voting-themed mix to play (and dance to!) while they completed their voting plan.
The experience of voting (even for the most savvy and enthusiastic voter) is a massive bummer. Why? Because:
- It’s easy to mess up.
- It’s emotionally exhausting.
- It’s confusing.
- It’s isolating and boring.
Every voter who participated in the voter concierge service shared that they were experiencing at least 1 if not all of these challenges. So the voter concierge service addressed each of them.
By walking the voter through their voting plan, the Personal Voter Concierge helped them to avoid common pitfalls and identify roadblocks before they happen.
By bringing positive energy, jumpsuit silliness, dance moves, and unbridled enthusiasm for issues on the ballot, the Personal Voter Concierge offered a breath of fresh air. Voters walked away from the experience with a tangible shift in energy from negative to positive.
By breaking down ballot jargon and explaining the issues in easy-to-digest soundbites, it helped the voter become less confused about what they are voting for, and how to cast a stress-free vote.
What Voters Said
“This is great, thank you so much! Seriously, I went from overwhelmed to energized.”
“[The Personal Voter Concierge] made voting realistic for me. I felt like I could handle it. I didn’t have to figure out how to go figure it out! And most important, I felt informed and confident in my choices, and like I could articulate why I was voting how I was. And I did most of it at a basketball court while providing just enough attention to my kids!”
“Such a joy! I loved how your happiness oozed from your body. It was contagious”
“I was feeling despair. I am now feeling much more optimistic.”
“I just moved here and I don’t know where I would have found any of [this voter information] otherwise.”
