Services for Political Campaigns
Camelot is designed to help political campaigns, large and small. We handle the operational aspects of managing a voter database conducting outreach, leaving you to focus on strategy, messaging, and personal contact with voters.
Every Camelot account includes a number of features useful for political campaigns:
Full voter database
You can import voters from a comma-separated value (CSV) file, which you can generate from Microsoft Excel or most database programs. Every voter automatically gets a record in Camelot to track demographic and contact information, any tags and notes you add, a voting history, and the results of outreach. You can create custom lists based on any criteria you choose, which makes it simple to target specific voter populations with messages likely to resonate with them.
Online phone banking
Camelot makes it easy for your volunteers to make phone calls from their computers, wherever they are. You upload a script and choose a list to target; callers are shown who to call and prompted to record pertinent information as they go.
There are two ways to canvass voters with Camelot; in either case, you can choose a target list, and we’ll automatically generate walk sheets. Many clients view walk sheets and record results on their mobile devices as they walk, so encounters are visible in real-time and there’s no data entry after the fact. We also generate printabe, PDF walk sheets, segmented by city, precinct, street, and odd and even house numbers.
Camelot automates the process of sending plain-text or rich HTML emails. We’ll show you stats—clicks, links visited, bounces, and more—and can handle unsubscribe requests automatically. As with all outreach in Camelot, you can choose a subset of voters to target, so everybody receives a carefully tailored message.
Direct mail continues to be an important avenue for political outreach. We allow you to upload and share your mailing collateral. You can then generate Avery mailing labels in several formats, for small mailings, and for larger mailings you can export a bulk mail-ready spreadsheet for a mail fulfillment vendor.
Any campaign with more than a couple of staff knows about the challenges of sharing documents. Dozens of emails with various attached versions, no record of what changes were made, and frequent confusion about the latest version. Camelot allows you to upload documents and track unlimited versions for each—all shared with your campaign staff.
