Textbanking for Democracy: Register Democrats Via Text Messaging

April 8 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm EDT

Working in conjunction with Field Team 6, we will text unregistered likely Democrats in key swing states before 2024’s elections!

Field Team 6 calls this BYOP or Bring Your Own Phone, although it actually uses your own computer with an anonymized Google Voice number or Apple’s iMessage app. And it’s a great way to register new Democrats!

There are a few things you’ll need to set up on your computer but they aren’t difficult. We strongly suggest that you attend the FT6 BYOP Boot Camp session which is given every Thursday from 6-7:30 PM EDT. You can sign up HERE. If you’re tech savvy and want to do the set up on your own,
this User Guide provides all the information.

The prerequisites you will need to attend the class are explained in the confirmation email that you will receive. None of them are difficult and we can help if you need it.

Once trained, you’ll be able to send texts any time between 9 am – 9 pm in the Time Zone you’re texting. We will start in Pennsylvania and potentially move onto other swing states in the future.

Since this is the first time we are giving these events, we are limiting the enrollment to 20 people until we are sure we have worked out all the bugs. So if you sign up, please do your best to be there or let us know if something comes up and you can’t make it. If everything goes well, then we will open this up and the more the merrier.

We use Field Team 6 Slack to communicate with our BYOP-ers. If you already have a login to the Field Team 6 Slack channel, great! If not, we’ll give you the sign-up link during the BYOP Boot Camp. (once signed up, look for the #byop-bring_your_own_phone channel.)
