About Swing Blue Alliance

Swing Blue Alliance is the largest all-volunteer, Democratic grassroots organization headquartered in Massachusetts. In partnership with organizations in swing states, we develop evidence-based programs to protect our democracy, work on competitive local and national elections, and strengthen the Democratic Party at the grassroots level.

Why us?

All-volunteer community – We are all fueled by our dedication to saving democracy from the grassroots level, which means we highly respect the time we are all putting into the organization and care deeply about each other as friends and peers. No one at Swing Blue is paid. We’re a community that just wants to make a difference. 

Work with on-the-ground organizations – We create programs that connect you directly with on-the-ground organizations in swing states. These partners are critical to our success as a Democratic organization, they provide local knowledge and training and we provide the programs and volunteers to supercharge their efforts. 

Rooted in research – We study the effectiveness of all our programs with randomized control trials so can ensure the effectiveness of our campaigns. We also partner with groups like the Field Leaders Research Network to share findings and discuss best practices. 

Ease of volunteering – We ensure our programs are built to make volunteering simple. We create technologies, processes, and tools that our volunteers want to use. We’re also focused on training and educating our volunteer base, so we can grow together.

Programs

Voter Registration – We help Democratic committees and other local progressive allies to identify the most promising precincts for door-to-door voter registration, and then we coordinate volunteers to register voters via text, phone banking and door-to-door canvassing.

Volunteer Recruiting by Phone – Swing Blue Alliance phone banks help organizations recruit volunteers and stay in touch with campaign volunteers from one election, so they can strengthen the Democratic presence in their community. 

Voter Phone Banking and Texting – Our teams also use phone banking to register voters, provide information about key issues, and help turnout voters when close to elections.

Mail Campaigns – The Swing Blue Alliance mail campaign team works collaboratively with on-the-ground organizations and intermediate hosts to create mail campaigns that range from 10-100K letters. 

Aiming High: Our Framework

Additive: If not for us, then who?
Important: Critical, ballot-wide
Measurable: With quantifiable effects
