Resistbot is a chat bot that over 4 million people use to contact
their elected officials in Congress and state governments, find town
halls and local political events, volunteer for resistance groups, and
otherwise engage civically between elections. Resistbot’s vision is to
drive overall turnout by engaging citizens year-round, not just every
2 or 4 years.
Text the word “resist” to 50409 on any mobile phone to try it.
Campaigns and groups can purchase keywords on the service in order to
get a GOTV program and build their lists. In 2017, the Murphy for N.J.
campaign employed this to rave reviews. This program encouraged voting
plan creation, and provided election day reminders and polling places.
Resistbot also supports signing up for volunteer shifts, gathering
feedback from voters, and more features for paid customers. The bot is
available on SMS, as well as Messenger, Twitter (direct message), and
Telegram. Press and user testimonials are available on Resistbot’s
