7 down-ballot campaigns to keep on your radar

A quick look at some of the campaigns that have leveraged our platform as they work to secure their election wins.

It is essential to vote in local, state, and federal elections for significant change—and at Mobilize, we’ve watched many of our partners live out our values of democracy, justice, and inclusion as they set out to uplift and transform their communities and our country.

We have watched campaigns accelerate towards success using our platform as candidates build lists, fundraise, engage supporters, and build communities. These candidates are leading the polls, and it is with the help of supporters willing to mobilize.

With thousands of shifts scheduled, it’s safe to say that these campaigns are making BIG moves. Check them out:
