Every voter in VAN has a personal page where their data is stored. This includes address and contact information, past contact attempts, survey response, events, and more. This document will walk through the various fields in a voter's profile page.
All voters have a profile on the myVoters side of VAN, but not all voters exist in myCampaign. If a voter has profiles on both sides of VAN, they may look different depending on what information was copied over from myVoters to myCampaign and what data you've entered into myCampaign manually.
**Note: For information on how to edit a voter's information see here. Not all fields are editable in myVoters because that data comes directly from the Secretary of State's office. Most fields in myCampaign are editable, though the changes will only be reflected in your committee.
Below is a list of the commonly used fields in Voter Profiles. If you have questions about other fields in Voter Profiles, feel free to reach out to email@example.com
This lists all home districts in which the voter lives, including state, county, precinct, HD, SD, etc.
Also at Primary Address
Links to other voters who share the same home address.
Likely Party (myV)
You can see exactly how many party points a voter has for each party here
If your campaign uses specific regions that are not tied to county or other political boundaries, you can find the region in which they are located here.
You can edit a voter's home address here. Click the three dots next to their current address to make edits to a part of their address, such as the wrong street address number. Click "Add New Address" to enter a whole new address. If they have multiple addresses, you can click "Set as Preferred" to set which address will appear in phone banks, mailers, etc.
Polling Location (myV)
You can see a voter's polling location, address, and hours of operation here.
You can change a voter's name here, so it appears correctly in phone banks and mailers.
You can edit a voter's phone number here. If a number has marked Wrong Number or Disconnected during a canvass, the number will appear with a strikethrough. If you need to add back a number that was marked incorrectly, Click "Restore" to the right.
Try your best to mark how likely that number is to be a cell phone when entering new numbers. If you're unsure, you can make a judgment based on the voter's age or any other information.
You can edit a voter's email here. Keep in mind that, if you use the DFL tool ActionNetwork, entering an email address here does not enter it into ActionNetwork.
You can see current Activist Codes and add new ones here.
You can view old survey responses here. You can also add new survey responses manually. Simply enter when and how the voter was contacted and then enter the response.
You can see all committees' previous contacts, including canvass responses here.
Absentee Voting (myV)
Here you can find out if a voter has requested a ballot, when the ballot was mailed to them, and whether or not it has been returned. The current data is for the 2020 General Election
While you cannot see who a voter voted for, you can see here whether or not they voted in past elections.
Any notes created in MiniVAN or VPB will appear here.
A voter's exact score number for all models will appear here. If the voter was not included in a certain model, it will be listed as "Unknown"
If your campaign uses Targets for voter contact, the Target fields they are in will be listed here.
Upcoming Events (myC)
If a voter is scheduled for volunteer shifts in Event Manager, all future events will appear here. You can also schedule them for events in this field. Simply click "Schedule for Events" and then search for your event by name. Mark them as scheduled for the event.
Past Events (myC)
All past volunteer shifts will be listed here, whether or not they actually ended up coming to the event. You can close your shifts here by marking them as Completed or a No Show
