SPONSORSHIP & PARTNERSHIP
Calling all Riders. Calling all Drivers.
VoterPool is the free and easy way to arrange carpools to the polls.
VoterPool’s easy to use interface allows both voters in need of a ride and voters
with cars to connect to go to the polls.
Using both an online platform, integrated with mobile applications and other
capabilities, VoterPool provides multiple ways to connect to get citizens to the
polls on Election Day.
HOW IT WORKS
+ = VOTERS
VoterPool provides an easy to use interface that
allows both voters in need of a ride to the polls and
voters with rides to link up.
VoterPool wants to be the missing link in the voter
mobilization world, building an online community to
make voting, a key to participating in the political
process, more accessible.
IF YOU ARE A RIDER
A rider has the ability to set up a quick profile,
entering just their name, email address, and general
location. We keep the sign up short and sweet.
By creating a username, password, and identifying
their polling place by entering in their address in our
handy database, in a less two minutes, riders put up
their request for a ride.
IF YOU ARE A DRIVER
Registering to be a driver is just as simple. In
addition to creating a username, password, and
polling place, drivers can list how many riders they
can take through a drop down menu.
As riders sign up, drivers adjust their drop down
menu to let other riders know how many seats are
left in their car.
The voter education and registration field is filled with organizations engaged in
powerful work to get citizens registered and educated on the issues.
As a team comprised of former grassroots organizers and campaign workers, one of
the things we noticed was missing was a focused effort to mobilize people to the polls
the day of the election.
There are a variety of reasons why registered voters do not make it to the polls. They
cannot locate their polling place, push it off until the end of the day when it may be
too late, or they lack transportation to the polls.VoterPool works to solve all three of
VoterPool also provides a way for even the busiest people to remain civically engaged
in their communities, helping fellow citizens take part in one of the most important
civic exercises someone can take part in: casting their ballot.

VoterPool is seeking cross-promotional partnership opportunities.
Since getting our fellow citizens to the polls takes a few steps, VoterPool seeks to work
with pre-existing causes and organizations in the voter education and mobilization
VoterPool is strictly non-partisan. Our goal is to get people to the polls. Period.
VoterPool will be building out a comprehensive list of voter resources on its website
and featuring its partners prominently in different areas within both the online
platform and the various mobile applications.
VoterPool is looking for partners willing to share VoterPool with their supporter base,
feature VoterPool on their own websites and help promote the availability of the tool.
VoterPool is looking for sponsors to provide financial support for the growth and
sustainability of VoterPool.
VoterPool provides product and brand placement opportunities through both the
online platform and mobile applications. Pop-up ads are available for both platforms
as well as placement opportunities in VoterPool video and other media used to spread
VoterPool taps into a large market of potential consumers and citizens who are
already engaged. Our audience is an audience ready and willing to try new products
and serve as brand ambassadors of your product.
The interactive nature of VoterPool also allows us to make of your sponsorship dollars
more affective. Users will interact with your brand as they use VoterPool versus
having to dig for a static logo on our website or in print materials.
We’re just getting started
The team behind VoterPool also makes it unique.
VoterPool is a project of REALPOLITECH, a group of under-30 Millennial social
entrepreneurs. We love helping causes do what they do better and building tools that
will help people become more politically and socially active.
The strategists and developers work with non-profits and small businesses on the
service side of this hybrid business. This work helps to support the development of
free, cause-based public projects like VoterPool.
We are just getting started...but we need your help.
Partner. Sponsor. Connect.
