Introducing ActBlue Express. One-click political donations are only a minute away.

ActBlue is unveiling a sparkly new feature this week. We’re calling it ActBlue Express, and we think you’re going to like it. It’ll make your life easier, and it’ll make democracy stronger. (How clever.)

It’s better for you. ActBlue Express will save you time by storing your information for you, just like Amazon. See all your donations in one place.

It’s better for democracy.
  Through ActBlue Express, we’ll collect the kinds of information campaigns need to do a better job—and we’ll protect your privacy at the same time.

It’s better for the environment. Over time, ActBlue will help campaigns cut down on unnecessary paper mailings, by allowing you to elect to have campaign correspondence delivered to you electronically. (We could have called this “ActBlue Goes Green,” but we’re not that incorrigibly schmaltzy.)

Getting started is easy.

–If you have an ActBlue username, log in to MyActBlue to create your donor account. Click ‘Create Donor Profile’ under ‘Account Settings.’

–If you don’t yet have an ActBlue username, make a donation to any candidate (or to ActBlue), and click the ‘Sign up now’ button on the ‘Thank You’ screen.

Dude for Hope


I just made a donation to my congressional representative to thank him for endorsing Senator Obama. I was disappointed to find that there was no way to add a note of thanks or in anyway to indicate that the donation was from an Obama supporter. On your Tips & Tricks page, you discuss how important it is to thank the donors and follow up with an e-mail. I think it is important for you to realize that communication is a two-way street. As a donor, I don’t just want to anonymously send money, I also want to communicate a message to the candidate. Please consider the possibility of adding a comment field and a support field (Obama, Clinton, Edwards, etc). This information should be communicated to the candidate for their review.
