We are a group of technical and political experts and enthusiasts, devoted to promoting and preserving true democratic processes that respect each and every voter and their desire to know what’s going on with their government and, most importantly, with those candidates seeking their support. We believe honest conversation between campaign workers and the voters they seek to engage is the best method for both educating the voting public and getting out the vote.
