About PTP

Progressive Turnout Project (PTP) is a grassroots organization with a single mission: get Democrats to the polls. We design, test, and execute specialized voter turnout programs targeting inconsistent Democratic voters in the most competitive congressional districts in the country. In 2016, PTP participated in 19 competitive congressional districts by putting more than 200 field staff on the ground, making more than 500,000 phone calls, and sending more than 2 million pieces of mail. We continued this work in 2017, working in 11 special elections at the statewide, congressional, and local levels; investing heavily in the Virginia House of Delegates elections; and organizing with progressive local groups all across the country.

Progressive Turnout Project is committed to building a staff that reflects the diverse communities that make up our country and the progressive movement.
