An activist will call and lobby your elected official related to the campaign's issue when you claim a call, by either purchasing it, or by claiming a free call that has been bought by someone else. The activist will present the case and urge the official to vote in line with the cause you are supporting. They will describe you and state that you are pledging to withhold your vote in the future if your official doesn't act accordingly if you have made this selection.
If you purchased your call, your money will go to the caller lobbying on your behalf and to the non-profit beneficiary listed on the campaign.
