Why doesn’t the app come preloaded with data?
There are laws that regulate voter data and digital content in general that vary from state to state, even county to county. Also, keeping accurate and up-to-date data is expensive, prohibitively on a national scale. As such, Our Voice USA has opted to not be in the business of providing canvassing data.
Where can I get data?
Talk to your County or State Clerk/Secretary for information on how to obtain voter data from the government. Political parties often provide data to their own candidates, and you can sometimes buy data from various for-profit entities.
You can also just start knocking on doors!
Not having any data does not prevent you from recording data as you go. The app allows you to add pins, edit the address yourself and create your own surveys for any use, not just political campaigns.
Does Our Voice USA see my data?
Do Other Users see or access my data?
No. All data generated, cultivated and compiled stays with your organization profile. The only way anyone can access it is if you decide to distribute or share it. Your data. You keep it.
How Does Our Voice USA Earn Money To Operate?
Our Voice USA is not in the business to make a profit from your data and data collection efforts. Rather, we rely on donations and income earned from our merchandise. We use any money earned towards marketing, developing new tools and maintaining the website and our digital tools. Our Voice USA is staffed with volunteer team members who share the same vision of empowering people to get involved.
