We have a custom application which has been used in to election cycles. We are thinking of converting to the CiviCRM platform. Can CiviCRM be configured to run a political campaign?
Yes. CiviCRM can manage
- volunteer management
- phone banking
- door knocking
- Get Out The Vote
- event management (think fundraising events, or getting folk for a door-knocking bash).
As per my comment above though, what really matters is what you need to achieve your political goals.
