WHAT IS THE VAN?
The Oklahoma Democratic Party maintains a regularly updates and robust online voter file for Democrats. The Oklahoma VAN (Voter Activation Network), empowers campaigns and activists with the tools they need to Turn Oklahoma Blue. This online database organizes voter and volunteer information to ensure we target the right voters and turn them out to vote. Campaigns run more efficiently and effectively when campaigns and activists track their projects and successes.
This is a powerful database during election time and is updated regularly every month. When using the VAN, Democrats ensure that our communities are registered to vote and can encourage everyone to make it to their polling station—no matter where you live in Oklahoma.
We invest hundreds of thousands of dollars to make sure this data is current. We are always adding more information with the help of our Oklahoma and national partners. Voter data from every county in the state is in the VAN, like voter registration information and vote history as far back as 1992, including Primary and General Elections. It is supplemented with run-off elections, special elections, and constitutional elections.
Access to the voter file is free for Democratic Party Leaders and is provided at a small cost to Democratic Candidates and Elected Democratic Officials.
