Advanced Voter File Segmentation

Yes, most political campaign management software tools can slice and dice the data, but it’s “how” you slice it that counts. That’s where our campaign software sets itself apart. We give you precise control to target specific voters allowing you to drill down in ways you’ve never imagined. Having the right tools will make your GOTV efforts, voter ID work and canvassing better than ever.

Canvasssing Was Easy

"I spent the weekend learning about canvassing lists and mobile canvassing. I set up our whole committee and then I went out mobile canvassing. It was easy to use and set up. The best part was that I learned everything from the YouTube videos and the Knowledge Base article. This is the first time I used the mobile canvassing features and I was very pleased to be able to figure it out using just the videos and the article. Thanks."

Debbie Agliano, Treasurer, Hanover County Republican Committee (VA)

"The Trail Blazer software, mobile app, and support team have been a tremendous help to our candidates here in Stark County, Ohio and helped us to organize our database with great ease. You have no idea what it was like coming into an office and searching through the last 15 years of spreadsheets to find a donor name or an event list. I’m glad I pushed our Chairman and Vice Chairman to purchase this and make our office 1,000x more efficient."

Excecutive Director for the Stark County Republican Party
