Her site, kirstengillibrand.com, redirects to the subdomain 2020.kirstengillibrand.com.

There is a fair amount of motion used on the site: As one scrolls the page, content moves and / or appears. This video captures some of the experience that static images can’t convey.

English and Spanish content is available.

English-language pages include:

  • Home
  • About / Meet (which includes stance information)
  • Newsletter sign-up
  • Campaign jobs
  • Ways to donate via ActBlue. The main “Donate” button includes a heart icon.
  • Policies

There is no visible online store nor did any pop-ups appear for providing an email address or for making a contribution.

Unlike most sites that include social media profile links in the header and or footer areas of a page, Senator Gillibrand’s site incorporates the links with colorful icons and content on the site home page:
