Nonprofit VOTE's 2010 study demonstrates the effectiveness of in-agency nonprofit voter engagement work. During the 2010 midterm election, Dr. Kelly LeRoux of the University of Illinois at Chicago conducted research on the impact nonprofits have when they talk to their clients and constituents about voting. The study, supported by Nonprofit VOTE and the Michigan Nonprofit Association, showed that when nonprofits discussed voting with their clients, they were not only more likely to vote, but also more likely to talk to their friends and family about voting.
