Building a progressive Texas.From the ground up.
Change the game.Win the future.
Our fundamental aim is to increase participation in our democracy. When it comes to driving turnout or changing voter behavior, the old political playbook doesn't work. Meeting people where they are does. So we're investing in people and engaging year-round with voters, having deep conversations with them, and building local campaigns on popular, progressive issues with a focus on boots-on-the-ground organizing.More about us
Why Ground Game Texas
Georgia and Arizona gave us a blueprint for grassroots change. We need to build the foundation for that change in Texas.
No more “off years.”
- We can't wait until a month before an election to talk to voters. We need to knock doors year-round and treat every year like it's a presidential election year.
“Safe seats” are a problem.
- Some of the "safest" seats in Texas have the lowest turnout. We need to put issues and candidates on the ballot that motivate and mobilize voters.
Workers, wages & weed.
- Progressive ideas—a $15 minimum wage, expanding Medicaid, legalizing marijuana—are popular ideas. We need to lead with the progressive policies that cross political boundaries.

Austin Just Says No to Weed Busts, No-Knock
Austin voters sent a resounding message to the Austin Police Department on May 7: People should not be arrested or cited for possessing small amounts of marijuana, nor should they be subjected to no-knock search warrants. In Travis County, where the bulk of Austin voters live, the citizen initiative, on the ballot as Proposition A, passed with nearly 86% of the vote.
Austin votes to decriminalize marijuana, ban no-knock warrants
In the May 7 election on Saturday, Austinites voted to pass a proposition decriminalizing marijuana and banning no-knock warrants. This ballot item was spearheaded by a group known as Ground Game Texas, which launched the initiative to get the proposition at the ballot box by gathering signatures around the area.
