Join Democratic GAIN and the VAN (Voter Activation Network) for a beginner's training on VAN - the world's largest provider of voter file technology to Democrats and progressives.

Nearly every Democratic campaign in the United States uses VAN databases to manage their voter contact programs from identification to persuasion to Get Out The Vote. VAN marries voter file data with the most powerful tools available for canvassing and collecting vast amounts of new data.

During the beginner session, we will start with an overview of the general site layout. Following this, there will be discussions regarding the types of data typically found in VAN and who administers this data, as well a review of Committees, Profiles and Users and an explanation of Activist Codes, Survey Questions and Scripts. The beginner session will also cover Data Entry, Volunteer Management, and the various tools users can use to contact people (e.g. My List Page).

If you have volunteered on a campaign and/or participated in phonebanks and canvasses, but have limited data entry experience,  you should attend the beginner session.
