Texas Democrats Mobilize on Knock 10

Austin, TX — Today, Texas Democrats are kicking off a statewide program to mobilize on Knock 10, a recently launched DNC app that streamlines the process of door-knocking and talking to voters in 2017 and 2018.

Over the next several months, the state party will be hosting trainings, organizing with county parties, and empowering individual activists to make change locally.

What is Knock 10?

  • Knock 10 is a mobile application launched by the Democratic National Committee that allows experienced organizers and brand new activists to go through their neighborhoods and knock 10 doors at a time.

  • The app provides a simple conversational script, pinpoints the knocker’s GPS location, and lines up 10 nearby doors of targeted voters to knock on.

  • This app removes the friction of canvassing. Rather than spending money printing and shuffling paperwork, and spending hours in intensive software training and data entry, anyone who wants to talk to voters can do so within 5 minutes of downloading the app.

  • Anyone can use the app, and state parties will use the collected data to benefit Democrats up and down the ballot. Thousands of volunteers will have the opportunity to take advantage of the new tool’s power and get more people involved in their communities.

Texas Democratic Party Executive Director Crystal K. Perkins issued the following statement:

“Knock 10 is revolutionary. The Texas Democratic Party has a critical responsibility to empower grassroots organizers and activists that carrying our candidates to victory, especially at the local level. We’re excited to hit the doors and talk to Texans about what’s at stake in 2017, 2018 and beyond.  The fact is, if you’re willing to talk to a friend or knock on your neighbor’s door, we can build a better tomorrow.

“Texas Democrats are all about a fair shot for all. We’re bringing our communities together to stand up to those who are rigging the system against working Texans.”
