Nonprofits and Nonvoters

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.
