What We Do

Our innovative research, training and our expert strategic assistance helps ensure the best outcomes for ballot measure campaigns. With the support of visionary funders and committed national and state partners, we provide these valuable programs:

Campaign Support

BISC helps progressive campaigns develop smart strategies for success and fosters a collaborative approach to ballot measures.

Organizations that take advantage of BISC’s training and strategic assistance are better prepared, more efficient, and more likely to win their initiative campaigns. We provide partners with cutting-edge research, advice on strategy and tactics, and analyses of campaign budgets, funding, messaging, and operations.

Research

BISC helps progressive campaigns develop smart strategies for success and fosters a collaborative approach to ballot measures. BISC conducts essential research on the science of ballot measures - how voters feel about and make decisions on ballot measures, how best to communicate with and persuade them, how different issues interact with one another on the ballot, which issues most engage the New American Majority, and more.

We share this critical knowledge with our partners and incorporate it into our strategic assistance, trainings and other outreach to help organizations throughout the country win ballot measure campaigns.

Digital Library

BISC created a digital library that houses ballot-measure information ranging from past campaign materials, to campaign debriefs, to memos highlighting best practices. This library is a unique resource all campaigns should access to help build their own strategies.
