Turn PA Blue

About

Our Mission

Turn PA Blue is actively working to turn the Pennsylvania State Legislature blue, district by district, through volunteer recruitment, training, and mobilization to elect Democrats up and down the ballot. Founded in 2017, Turn PA Blue strategically deploys a grassroots army of volunteers to flippable districts across Pennsylvania.

Turn PA Blue organizes door knocking (when it can be done safely), phone banking, texting, postcards, and Vote By Mail outreach in targeted, winnable state legislative races. We are also committed to increasing Democratic turnout for Joe Biden across the Commonwealth.

Since 2017, Turn PA Blue volunteers have:

  • Knocked over 200,000 doors
  • Provided volunteer coverage at hundreds of polling locations
  • Helped to send over 2 million texts to voters and volunteers
  • Written close to 300,000 postcards
  • Helped make over than 1 million phone calls to voters
  • Hosted hundreds banking parties and fundraisers

Our Track Record of Success

HISTORIC GAINS

In the 2018 election and 2019 special elections, Turn PA Blue helped flip 6 PA Senate Seats and 14 PA House Seats making historic gains that no one thought possible. In the 2019 elections, we helped to win county councils, local school board races and judgeships in the collar counties surrounding Philadelphia, flipping Delaware County and Chester County from red to blue for the first time ever and Bucks County for the first time in 36 years. 

2020 GOALS

Our goals for the General Election are clear: flip our General Assembly and deliver PA to Joe Biden. A net gain of only 4 senate seats and 9 state house seats will ensure Democratic control of both chambers.  President Trump carried PA by only 44,292 votes out of more than 6 million cast — this was the narrowest margin in a presidential election in 176 years. A grassroots army working for state and local candidates, primarily in suburban districts, will drive Democratic turnout and help us win back our state and our nation. Let’s do this!
