Users are people who can log in to the VAN. Some VAN clients may organize their users by district field values, as a way to indicate which user(s) have been assigned to which turf(s). A given user may be assigned multiple district field values, and a single district field value may be assigned to multiple users. Or a user may be assigned no district field values. The district field which is used to organize users is fixed, within each state, at the committee level.
For example, if the “Jane Casey for Senate” committee in Massachusetts is organized by Congressional District, it’s possible to organize users in that committee, as follows:
- User 1234 is assigned to Congressional Districts “001” and “002”
- User 1235 is assigned to Congressional Districts “002” and “003”
- User 1236 has no Congressional District assignments
