As a reliably red state, Swing Blue Alliance (formerly known as Swing Left Greater Boston) knew that North Carolina would be challenging to flip, but the volunteers pushed hard, making Republicans struggle to hold the state. Trump even had to visit the state a half dozen times to rally the base, showing how much Democratic efforts were impacting his standing. In the end, even though Donald Trump won, Joe Biden was able to garner enough electoral college votes to win the country and the popular vote.
More than 3,700 volunteers from Swing Blue Alliance supported North Carolina during the election. The team started in 2019 by supporting a special election in September, completing thousands of hours of volunteer work. In 2020, the volunteers conducted more than 1.2 million volunteer actions, such as phone banking calls, letter and postcard writing, and text messages to urge local Democrats to vote. The team held hundreds of events and devoted more than 7,400 hours to the state. The volunteer team helped to drive a massive number of early voters, breaking records in the weeks leading up to election day and driving massive enthusiasm.
