goPuff partners with Headcount to deliver voter registration information to every customer who orders now through the end of the month
goPuff, the go-to solution for immediate everyday needs, today launched the Raise Your Vote Campaign, delivering an online registration tool that makes it easy for residents across the country to register to vote and apply for absentee ballots. The first delivery company to use its platform and nationwide logistics network for voter registration this year, goPuff has partnered with non-partisan voter registration organization HeadCount to make it easier for goPuff’s customers, social media followers, driver partners and employees to register to vote and apply for absentee ballots. Industry-leading brands Advil and Emergen-C have come together to support voter registration alongside goPuff for the Raise Your Vote Campaign.
With more than 200 facilities delivering to customers in 500 cities across the country, goPuff’s Raise Your Vote Campaign enables residents to make their voices heard. Here’s how it works:
Now through September 30, goPuff customers will be prompted at checkout to register to vote or apply for an absentee ballot via goPuff’s HeadCount-powered portal. The portal can also be accessed directly at this link or by texting VOTER GOPUFF to 40649.
In the week leading up to National Voter Registration Day on Tuesday, September 22, goPuff customers will receive a printed card with their order featuring registration information and a QR code linking to goPuff’s registration portal.
"At goPuff, we create solutions that simplify our customers' lives and make life easier. By harnessing the power of our delivery network, we are simplifying the process of voter registration and saving customers time," said Elizabeth Romaine, goPuff’s Director of Communications. "As an organization, we are committed to connecting with and supporting each of the communities in which we operate. Voting is a critical tool all of us can leverage to positively impact and support our own communities, and we’re happy to partner with HeadCount to help more people across the country do just that."
Tim Bramlette, HeadCount Senior Director of Partnerships & Marketing, added, "We traditionally register tens of thousands of voters at music festivals each year. Now, with many of those events canceled, we’re excited to partner with goPuff to make registering to vote easier and more accessible from home. We look forward to tapping into goPuff’s loyal customer base and leveraging their logistics network to enable easy access to civic engagement and make a real impact on our communities."
