Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Voting Ambassador?
A Voting Ambassador is a community organizer who recruits Vote Triplers — people who commit to reminding three people to vote in the next election.
What is a Vote Tripler?
A Vote Tripler is a person who commits to remind three people (friends, housemates, neighbors, etc.) to vote in the next election.
How much can I earn as a Voting Ambassador?
You’ll earn a payment of $25 for each Vote Tripler you recruit, up to a total of $400. You’ll earn a bonus of $25 for each Vote Tripler who goes on to become a Voting Ambassadors and recruits at least one Vote Tripler of his or her own, up to a total of $500 overall.
How much can I earn as a Vote Tripler?
Vote Triplers are volunteers, but they can become Voting Ambassadors and find Vote Triplers of their own from a list created specifically for them. If you are a Vote Tripler who also became a Voting Ambassador, you are being paid only as a Voting Ambassador — not as a Vote Tripler.
My housemate (or family member, neighbor, or friend) wants to be a Vote Tripler but isn’t on the list. Can I add them anyway?
No, you can only add Vote Triplers from the list. But we encourage you to talk about vote tripling with other people you know so more people will be reminded to vote in the next election!
What if I don’t see anyone I know on the list of possible Vote Triplers?
Try using the search tool to look for people you know — for example, work colleagues, people in your church or community group, Facebook and Instagram friends, etc.
What should I say to someone to get them to be a Vote Tripler?
There are no “magic words” you should say or a script you should follow. A very brief version of the conversation might go like this:
You: There’s an important election coming up in November, and I’m asking people I know to remind their friends to vote. Can I count on you to remind three of your friends to vote on Election Day?
Vote Tripler: Sure.
You: Great! What are the names of the three people you’ll remind to vote?
Vote Tripler: Angela Baker, Charlie Dawson, and Edna Foxx.
You: Thanks! A reminder to vote can make a big difference — especially when it’s from a friend. I really appreciate your help.
Can a Vote Tripler become a Voting Ambassador?
Yes! When we confirm a new Vote Tripler, we send a link to a special page where he or she can apply to become a Voting Ambassador. That person must still remind three people to vote as a Vote Tripler. We also send the Voting Ambassador a $25 bonus when the new Ambassador recruits his or her first Tripler.
Accounts and transactions
I added a Vote Tripler, so why didn’t I get paid?
When you add Vote Tripler, you must also add (a) the names of three people the Vote Tripler will remind to vote, and (b) the Vote Tripler’s phone number. We will send a text message to the Vote Tripler to confirm that he or she is in our voter database. As soon as the Vote Tripler is confirmed, you are qualified to receive your payment — if you have already completed a required W-9 form.
How and when will I get paid?
We offer two types of payments: (a) direct deposit into an existing bank account (if you have one); or (b) direct deposit into a new bank account (through Chime, an online bank) if you would like to open a bank account. Keep in mind that direct deposits take two to four business days for banks to process.
Do I have to pay taxes on my earnings as a Voting Ambassador?
Money you earn as a Voting Ambassador is considered “income” for tax purposes. Depending on your individual financial situation, you could be subject to tax on this income.
Is my personal and financial information secure?
Yes. We do not sell or trade your personal or financial information. For more details, please see the Privacy Statement and Terms of Service of Energize Voters LLC, which administers our Voting Ambassador Program.
