Take a Ride with the VAN

Posted By Jaren Love, GAIN Intern, Wednesday, June 2, 2010
It’s almost summer and that means we’re getting into the heat of campaign season. If you are interested in working or volunteering on a campaign, Democratic GAIN is here to get you up to speed on one of the most crucial technological tools of a campaign: VAN (Voter Activation Network), the world's largest provider of voter file technology to Democrats and progressives.  

VAN is used by nearly every Democratic campaign across the country to manage voter contact and to expedite GOTV. This Friday, June 4th, Democratic GAIN will be holding two VAN trainings, one for beginners and one for advanced users.  

The beginner session will cover the basics with an overview of the general site layout as well as types of data found in VAN. The event will include a discussion on the types of data typically found in VAN and who administers this data. This session is for anyone who has not used VAN, needs a refresher or has very limited knowledge of the tool. Click here to see more details and to register!

The advanced session will have an in depth discussion of user/data management. Topics will include: How to best utilize VAN for voter ID, volunteer input and management for My Campaign. The session will also cover an introduction to the development and integration of VAN’s new media tools. This event is aimed toward those with basic VAN experience.

Don't forget - you an attend in DC or via webinar!
