Big News! TextOut has been acquired by Civitech

Civitech, a leading provider of voter registration and engagement tools for Democratic and progressive organizations, to acquire KnockCo and its TextOut technology



The deal represents an expansion of the product offerings and talent that TextOut can offer. The integration of P2P text messaging into Civitech’s existing offerings represents a valuable opportunity to streamline voter outreach programs. We couldn’t be more thrilled to join the Civitech family and to begin serving you as one united company.


The integration of KnockCo’s TextOut product and services into Civitech’s digital campaign platform and data tools will make contacting voters even more seamless. Almost all employees at KnockCo will be joining the Civitech family as a part of the deal.


In the 2020 election, between the two companies, we partnered with well over 150 organizations to make it cost-effective to register voters, help voters request a vote-by-mail ballot, and make it easier for campaigns to turn out voters. Civitech and its partner organizations reached tens of millions of voters. We are confident that this acquisition and funding will enable us to reach even more.


We want to thank our colleagues and partners for being a part of our journey thus far. We will continue to work to deliver the best technology and services in elections up and down the ballot. We are extremely grateful and excited for what lies ahead.
