Volunteer Results


Results Matter

Our volunteers spend hours, days, months of their time working to help Democrats vote in elections — so we’re using data to make sure their energy and enthusiasm is driving an impact.


Partnership with Bluebonnet Data

Swing Left Greater Boston (SLGB) is partnering with Bluebonnet Data, a people-powered nonprofit with a mission to democratize data, to understand our volunteer impact. Bluebonnet embeds research fellows, highly-trained data scientists and coders, in progressive organizations like Swing Left Greater Boston. The Bluebonnet Data fellows analyze our data and compare it to voting information and other resources to help us understand what we need to do to win elections, where we target our resources, and what messages will resonate.

Research Team

Our Research Team investigates what activities will make the most impact on Democratic elections. They work with our partner, Bluebonnet Data to understand results, test out new ideas from the SLGB team, and evaluate past SLGB campaigns for learnings and best practices. We leverage their work to create guides and checklists so all our volunteers can benefit. Check out two of our research studies below.
