At Nonprofit VOTE we honor the hard-won victories of our predecessors by ensuring that as many Americans as possible cast a ballot on Election Day. We do this by leveraging the broad reach of the nonprofit sector, providing online resources and webinars that help nonprofits integrate nonpartisan voter engagement into their day-to-day program work, cosponsoring events like National Voter Registration Day, documenting best practices, and more. As celebrations of the Voting Rights Act’s 50th anniversary echo throughout 2015 let us honor those victories by turning voting rights into voting action. Join us.
Who are nonvoters? The Pew Research Center reports that they are individuals “who are either not registered to vote or are considered unlikely to vote.” Nonvoters tend to be younger, lower-income, and more diverse–demographics that closely align with the populations 501(c)(3) nonprofits serve. Many of the people nonprofits serve aren’t expected to turn out, but nonprofits can (and do) change that when they have conversations about voting. Learn more about how nonprofits reach and turn out nonvoters.
