This campaign has ended. Thanks for chipping in and making this happen!
UPDATE: After reaching the Kansas benchmark, we've decided this will be the end of this crowdfunding campaign. It's been a whole lot to manage, and we've already succeeded in polling three states! Who would've thought. Thanks to all who made this happen!
Any extra money from this GoFundme will go to a TBD Maine charity. Keep an eye out at @theJackVaughan's Twitter for a thread of receipts or thank you's from charities once the transactions are complete.
If the benchmarks are met, we'll be commissioning these polls with SurveyUSA, an A-rated pollster according to FiveThirtyEight. We'll likely fundraise through the weekend and get the polls underway by next week assuming any benchmarks are met. Share and donate, and we'll make this happen!
The success you all made of the initial attempt to raise money to poll Alaska was huge! Raising $8,300 in 24 hours proved that there's some demand for getting additional polls funded in certain races—we're starting this second fund in the event there's a demand for more numbers.
In the event we do not raise enough money for polls or raise a surplus of money, those funds will be donated to a TBD charity.
Our two polls we commissioned last week can be found at the links below:

[This is the official GoFundMe for Election Twitter's efforts to fund polls. Jack Vaughan, Christos Ioannou, and Steph Hernandez are behind this organized effort, but those who donate & share this are the real ones who will get this done a second time.]
