Thank you for signing up for the text party with Indivisible!
To ensure you can get up and texting as quickly as possible, we are asking that you take a few moments to create your text banking account with TextOut before the training! If you already have a TextOut account, please click on this link to join our workspace and be sure you are still able to log in. If you are not able to log in, please follow the instructions to create a new account.
Before Creating your TextOut Account (if you haven’t already)
TextOut is a very user-friendly application trusted by many campaigns and organizations across the progressive movement. There are a few things to note before getting ready to create your account. TextOut does not use your personal phone number and voters will not see your last name. TextOut can only be used on a computer or chrome book, you cannot use the app on a smartphone or tablet. We also recommend that it not be used on any public computers. It is also important to note that TextOut can be used through any internet browser such as Firefox, Safari, or Google Chrome. Microsoft Edge is NOT recommended, however.
