For more than 10 years, Handraiser has been used by campaigns to help win elections and seen an amazing success rate.  Here are a few of the features we know to be crucial to helping a campaign identify, activate and measure the participation of its voters.

Friends & Family

Handraiser is unique in its ability to leverage the friends & family relationships of your staff & volunteers to run a more effective campaign.

Identify Friends & Family Relationships
Handraiser enables your staff and volunteers to identify voters who are either Friends or Family and with who they have a familiar relationship.

Focus Contacts
Handraiser prioritizes outreach efforts so staff first contact their own Friends & Family.  This increases the likelihood of a meaningful conversation and lowers stress on your staff as they are reaching out to people they know.

Improve Voter Turnout
Handraiser has proven over many campaigns that contacts through familiar relationships significantly improves voter turnout and increases your chances of winning your campaign.

Voter Segmentation

Handraiser contains a wealth of information about your potential Voters, as well as enabling you to upload custom fields with your Voter data.  Segmentation allows you to divide these voters into similar groupings for targeted messaging.

Segment Based on Multiple Criteria
You can segment voters based on all of this voter data, empowering you to target specific voter groups, such as 30-40 yr old males earning $50-150K who subscribe to Men’s Fitness.  You can then customize your communication efforts based on voter interests and demographics.
