Campus Couch Parties

The ALL IN Challenge and Vote for Astra are sharing a peer-to-peer text banking strategy for virtual voter engagement. Volunteers will text contacts in their phones with pre-written scripts, prewritten answers, and links to register to vote, request an absentee ballot, pledge to vote, and make a plan to vote.


There is no cost to campuses to access the training resources and technology. The ALL IN Challenge will provide free access to the OutVote app from which text messages will be sent.


Use the code 020333 in OutVote to find the ALL IN Challenge campaign.

What is a Couch Party?
Couch Parties are a great way to reinvent the registration drive and engage students, friends, and classmates online this fall.
Couch Parties can be in-person or virtual. Volunteers will be able to text folks using the OutVote app and pre-written scripts to help people register to vote, request an absentee ballot, plan to vote early, and learn about candidates and issues on their ballot.

Get connected this fall with OutVote, a platform dedicated to making organizing friend-to-friend text banking simple. Check out how to get OutVote set-up for your team.  Before your campus Couch Party, we will send you special links for your volunteers to download OutVote and be directed to your action in OutVote. This will ensure that volunteers can easily and accurately access their texting action in OutVote.
