Power Your Campaign With Votebuilder

 

What is VAN?

VAN aka Votebuilder aka the Voter Activation Network is a national online database administered by the
DNC and maintained at the state level by the voter file manager.   We work directly with the South
Carolina State Board of Elections and third-party vendors to update VAN several times per year with the
latest voter registration and voter contact information. VAN enables your campaign to effectively target
voters, manage volunteer events, and store the data your campaign needs to get out the vote.
