Volunteer Results


Results matter

Our volunteers spend hours, days, months of their time working to help Democrats vote in elections. We’re using data to make sure their energy and enthusiasm is driving an impact.

Swing Blue Alliance research team

Our research team determines which activities have had the most impact on Democratic elections. They work with our partner, Bluebonnet Data, to understand results, test out new ideas from the SBA team, and evaluate past SBA campaigns for learnings and best practices. We leverage their work to create guides and checklists, so all our volunteers can benefit. Check out two of our research studies below.

Understanding effectiveness through our partnership with Bluebonnet Data

Swing Blue Alliance is partnering with Bluebonnet Data, a people-powered nonprofit with a mission to democratize data, to understand our volunteer impact. Bluebonnet embeds research fellows, highly-trained data scientists and coders, in progressive organizations like Swing Blue Alliance (SBA). The Bluebonnet Data fellows analyze our data and compare it to voting information and other resources to help us understand what we need to do to win elections, where we target our resources, and what messages will resonate.
