Today, Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris were elected President-elect and Vice President-elect, winning more votes than any other presidential ticket in U.S. history. In response, Human Rights Campaign (HRC) President Alphonso David issued the following statement:
HRC staff on the ground recruited 5,800 individual volunteers who completed 28,500 hours of voter contact in more than 2,650 volunteer events. This election year, HRC engaged in robust digital and online GOTV efforts, including sending over 2.7 million person-to-person text messages, a massive increase from 2018 when approximately 500,000 texts were sent. HRC sent over 2.5 million mail pieces, had over 930,000 phone conversations with voters, and engaged more than 200,000 voters through HRC’s voter dashboard at hrc.org/vote.
