By the numbers

I’ve been powering the resistance since March 2017

“Resistbot is the smartest technology to emerge from the disaster that was the 2016 election. No one else even comes close.”

Debra Cleaver, Founder, Vote.org

Yes, your letters will count

My volunteers have talked to Congressional staffers and the Congressional Management Foundation about how to best to be heard:

“According to a 2015 C.M.F. survey of almost two hundred senior congressional staffers, when it comes to influencing a lawmaker’s opinion, personalized e-mails, personalized letters, and editorials in local newspapers all beat out the telephone.”
Kathryn Schultz, The New Yorker

So keep it personal, unscripted, and be persistent. Here are a few users who’ve gotten letters back or read more frequently asked questions.

“Resistbot’s [get out the vote] program was highly cost-effective and able to generate an impressive number of net voters, surpassing the performance of many other programs in midterm election cycles. Baseline turnout was very high, at 76%; this is about 50% higher than [predicted.]”
Analyst Institute
“[Resistbot] increased turnout by 1.8 percentage points. Repeating the analysis among matched records produces a higher turnout rate in the control group (31.1%) and substantively similar estimate of the treatment effect (2.2 percentage points).”
