TEXT MESSAGING FOR  
POLITICAL CAMPAIGNS

Text messaging has become a powerful tool for political campaigns. In 2008, candidate Barack Obama announced his VP pick of Joe Biden to nearly 3 million Americans via text messaging and Donald Trump’s use of mobile messaging updates show text messaging is a cost-effective efficient means of communication for any public figure. 

However, you don’t have to be running for president to take the benefits of text messaging for your political campaign.


Some ideas that could help your election victory:

  • Voting Day Reminders
  • Event Alerts
  • Important Campaign Announcements
  • Volunteer communication
  • Stay ahead of the media by sending a text to address people directly
  • Gain more support from youth voters


It is simple to incorporate text messaging into your campaign by utilizing the same ideas you’ve used for years. Simply have “Text Smith to 40691 for a chance to win dinner with Smith!” on any or all of the following:


  • Stickers
  • Yard Signs
  • Flyers
  • Buttons
  • And more!
