WHO WE ARE
The Blue Wave Coalition of Volusia is a partnership of progressive and Democratic groups that share the goal of electing local, state, and national leaders who reflect our values. In the many elections since November 2016, we’ve seen again and again that grassroots organizations are making the difference.
Our activities include:
Aiding and encouraging voter registration
Increasing sign-ups for Vote by Mail
Supporting Democratic candidates by canvassing door-to-door
Making phone calls in support of Democratic candidates
Providing forums for local candidates
Following the lead of the Blue Wave Coalition in St. Johns County, which was founded in in 2018, we are in a position to increase voter turnout in Volusia County in 2020 and beyond by 20 percent or more.
Our strategic plan is grounded in an in-depth analysis of voting patterns over the past 10 years. It sets out specific goals and metrics for tracking progress and feeds into an evidence-based strategy for increasing the number of Democratic candidates, voter turnout, and the percentage of Democrats elected.
Underlying the BWC’s campaign plan, strategy, and boots on the ground is a Field Operations Team that recruits and trains candidates, develops materials, coordinates precinct work, and trains volunteers.
With support from the Field Ops team, coalition groups select and work specific precincts using multiple methods to register Democrats, encourage vote by mail, reach out to non-party affiliated voters, and ensure Democrats turn out in the primaries and the November election -- like never before.
