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 deactivated 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 November 1st, 2020, please take a moment this week to log in. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
For campaigns that are interested in continuing VAN access in 2021, we are excited to offer an updated VAN agreement for 2021. You will find a PDF version to fill out here. You can use a scanner app like Adobe Scan to scan the file back to us at email@example.com. We will be able to provide pricing for VAN access as well!
