The direct mission of vMOBilize is to increase rates of political participation in primary elections among eligible voters who are less politically engaged and who do not normally turn out in primaries. We hope to do this in an effort to make the primary electorate look more like the American electorate. By engaging new and less habitual voters, our aim is to help elect leaders who view the American people as their constituents. In this way, we will help reduce political polarization and political gridlock, and restore a spirit of compromise aimed at serving the interests of all of the people.
