Hot on the heels of the VAN’s decision to offer website hosting and CRM services, the Democratic voter turnout operation has decided to move even farther from its core competence:
Voter Activation Network to Launch New Technology For Republican National Committee
The architects of the DNC’s “VoteBuilder” software will help the GOP bridge the technology gap with “VoteSuppressor”
Somerville, Mass., April 1, 2010 — Voter Activation Network (VAN), the company whose “VoteBuilder” software helped propel the Democratic Party to a significant technological advantage over the GOP in 2008, announces the release of “VoteSuppressor,” a software program especially tailored to the needs of Republican campaigns.
“We had to take a different approach to address the technology needs of today’s Republican party,” said Voter Activation Network founder Mark Sullivan. “While we first expected to reuse much of the ground breaking voter contact software we built for Democrats, we soon realized that Republicans are more interested in scaring voters than talking to them.”
