Here's a sampling of the projects that Ragtag's team of volunteers has been working on.

Here's just some of the awesome projects we've been working on...

 
  Insightus  is a North-Carolina-based organization passionate about, among other things, voter protection. They wanted a tool to allow North Carolina citizens to keep an eye on their voter registration records, looking for changes or (gulp) removals. Changes obviously aren't always bad - sometimes you move or change your name, and you really do want the record to change. But knowing that your record changed is a Good Thing. Ragtag volunteers built out the back-end for their newly-launched project at  https://ncgovote.org/ . In the tool's first 24 hours of operation, 27% of site visitors signed to monitor their voting records!

 In March, 2018, Ragtag was delighted to support the amazing organizers of March For Our Lives to build out the  marchforourlives.com  website, and to integrate their site with various action tools. We’ve built a community of volunteers with deep technical and management skills, ready to jump in on projects like the March For Our Lives on a moment’s notice.

  Project Voter ID   Spread the Vote's canvassers travel door-to-door to find voters who need help assembling the right set of documents for their state's voterID requirements. The canvassers needed a mobile app to record which voters need help, and the team also wanted a CRM system to track progress helping these voters. Ragtag worked with Spread the Vote to provide mobile apps and back-end data management for their organizers. With a system built by Ragtag combining off-the-shelf software and custom synchronization tools, Spread the Vote can focus on their core mission. We launched in Georgia and Virginia is next.

  Nomad: Carpool to Canvass   Activists from solidly blue districts need ways to travel to contested districts where their work will have a greater impact. Inspired by technology built in 2016 that allowed thousands to travel from California to Nevada, Nomad helps volunteers form carpools to travel from their home location to a canvassing event, making it easier to participate in political activism. For more information, or to use Nomad in a 2017 election, please  contact us !

  Bidwire   Although local government information is widely available online, constituents have the responsibility of checking for new information. Project Bidwire checks government websites automatically, emailing updates to interested parties. Originally created to watch government procurement sites, it's also used to keep citizens informed about city council agendas. Its technology will form the basis for Ragtag's other scraping projects.
