"It's going to be the thing that pays dividends for election cycles to come, if we can get more voters on the rolls," said Tara McGowan, an Obama reelection campaign staffer leading the new push.

The campaign targets platforms like Snapchat, Facebook and YouTube, and includes short videos and images to encourage users to visit the campaign's website, CNN reported.

Two weeks ago, Acronym joined the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee and the National Democratic Redistricting Committee to launch a $10 million investment in Democratic candidates running for state offices.
