EXCELLENCE IN CAMPAIGNS

Campaign Experience from the
Courthouse to the White House

We mine voter files and commercial data sources, integrate the latest social science research, and cut through the election noise to educate and mobilize voters.

A Full Toolkit

We use a range of research and voter contact tools to tailor each program. Our survey tools differ based on the complexity of the race and communications budget.  And our voter contact menu includes live calling programs, robocalls, SMS (text) messaging, Telephone Town Halls, and digital communications.

Experience Up and Down the Ballot

We’ve helped deserving candidates at every office level — from city council races up to contests for Governor, US Congress and US Senate. We’ve helped hundreds of local school bond measures and dozens of statewide ballot measures and have worked with more than 800 state legislative and local government candidates. And team members have written voter contact scripts for every Democratic Presidential nominee since Al Gore.

Lead in Innovative Communication

Every election cycle reveals new ways to energize and mobilize targeted voters. Which means our tool kit is always growing. And we work extensively with academic research centers and progressive think tanks to field test new ideas on how to better connect with voters.

Awards for Quality Execution

Recognition like the Analyst Institute’s EXPY Awards spotlight our innovative use of the latest research to shape the political space for our candidates and causes. Independent blind peer review by the American Association of Political Consultants (AAPC) cites Chism Strategies’ work as “excellent” year after year. Our firm also regularly wins Reed Awards, adjudicated by Campaigns and Elections, the journal of the political campaign industry.

MORE THAN JUST BUSINESSWhat sets us apart.

We use a range of research and voter contact tools to tailor each project we take on. Our survey tools differ based on the complexity of the race and communications budget. Our voter contact menu includes: live calling programs, robocalls, SMS (text) messaging, Telephone Town Halls, and digital communications.
Business-Collection
We start with listening.
Whether we’re managing your entire voter outreach effort or just a single robocall, it’s essential that we understand the big picture. We have expertise in end-to-end political communications but we don’t offer one-size-fits-all programs. We get to know the political landscape and campaign context before recommending a plan to you.
Icons-Business-And-Finance
We strive for excellence.
Our team brings experience from every major campaign role from door-to-door canvasser to statewide candidate. We know the best practices for each tool and how to weave our services into the mix for maximum effect. We have been in the trenches and understand clients require rapid responses and agility to alter tactics when political landscapes shift.
Business-Collection
We work from experience.
We know the tactical side of the business: supervisor to rep ratio, blind spot or shadow monitoring, real time tracking, EIS dialers, varying dialing algorithms, etc. More importantly, we know how to use one-to-one communications to win campaigns. When clients bring us in we use our collective experiences to maximize chances for victory.
