Campus Couch Parties

The ALL IN Challenge and Vote for Astra are sharing a peer-to-peer text banking strategy for virtual voter engagement. Volunteers will text contacts in their phones with pre-written scripts, prewritten answers, and links to register to vote, request an absentee ballot, pledge to vote, and make a plan to vote.

What is a Couch Party?
Couch Parties are a great way to reinvent the registration drive and engage students, friends, and classmates online this fall.
Couch Parties can be in-person or virtual. Volunteers will be able to text folks using the OutVote app and pre-written scripts to help people register to vote, request an absentee ballot, plan to vote early, and learn about candidates and issues on their ballot.
