Highlighted How-To’s

Our highlighted How-To’s this week include the DFL VANual. We’re highlighting the DFL VANual again this week so you have the opportunity to dig in with new organizers or refresh your own VAN knowledge! We encourage you to look through these recent articles that we have added to our Knowledge Base. You can find our full knowledge base here


Updates to the MN Voterfile


With the end of another cycle, we are beginning our VAN “spring” cleaning. As users, you will have uninterrupted use of VAN while we do this maintenance. We anticipate all voter data to come back from the SOS office in Mid-Late January. Campaign user agreements mention that your service will continue through December 31st 2020. However, we will keep your committees active until we can provide all voter data to you. We will release further communication in January about access.  On Friday, December 11th, 2020 we will be deactivating all user accounts that have not had a log-in since September 1st, 2020. When we return from Winter Break we will be deactivating all user accounts that have not had a log-in since November 1st, 2020. If you will be using your account soon, but have not logged in since September 1st, 2020, please take a moment this week to log in. Email us at if you have any log-in issues. If you can’t log in this week, please note we can always re-activate users at a later time.

You may already be thinking about attending VAN and ActionNetwork trainings in 2021. We’re excited to offer our 2021 training sign ups for VAN and ActionNetwork. Both forms are currently accepting sign ups, but note that you will not receive an invitation to your desired training until the week of the training. Both of these trainings will be intro courses for novice VAN and ActionNetwork users. We encourage all users to attend for refreshers on the tools as well. 


Winter Break 2020


If you’ve been around the DFL for a few years, you’ll likely recall that we take a short break around Christmas each year to rest and recharge. Our team will be out of office from December 21st, 2020 through January 4th, 2021. In the meantime, you can still send us emails at, and we will get back to you when we return to the office in the new year! If there is any urgent matter, you can contact us at 651-300-2120. Please leave a message so we are able to get back to you with more information sooner! 

You can expect to hear from us once more this year on December 19th for the final DFL Data Update of 2020. We hope you’re staying cozy and COVID safe. As always, please reach out to us at with any questions.
