Our innovative voter registration, mobilization, and turnout programs, and the research that undergirds them, require a team of experts.

State & National Partners

While we’ve got a great team of staff, we’ve always understood that we can’t go it alone.

That’s why we’ve been building and strengthening relationships with state and national partners since our founding.

These relationships are a two-way street that benefits our organization as well as the partners’ efforts — and, more importantly, benefits the Rising American Electorate by coordinating to help them register and vote.

Our partners are crucial to our mission. Our work with our partners helps us to create economies of scale, minimize duplication of efforts, and provide a more cost-effective program.

Here are some of the benefits of our relationships with our partner organizations:

  • Working together on control group tests to reach voters in a smarter, better, faster, and cheaper way
  • Learning from and building on the work done by state “tables” and other civic organizations’ programs
  • Mining our own research and data to build new models to bring to the community to ensure rapid advancements in return-on-investment
  • Testing state partners’ innovations in other states to see if they can be effectively nationalized

Working with local partners helps us to build better programs that deliver the largest number of responses for the lowest cost, add to our bottom-line numbers of registrations and voters who turn out on issues, and contribute to the building of an infrastructure of engaged voters in targeted states.

In addition to our many state partners (too many to list here), we’re proud of our relationships with a variety of national partners — including the League of Conservation Voters Education Fund (LCVEF), Project VoteUS Action Education Fund, the NAACP, the National Council of La Raza and Mi Familia Vota.

Here are some rave reviews we’ve received from partners over the years:

By tapping into “[the VPC’s] expertise in reaching members of the RAE, we knew we stood a better chance of reaching our goals while giving the new groups the opportunity to learn.”
Linda Honold, former head of Wisconsin’s Voices

The partnership with VPC is “a unique opportunity…to create more efficient, better integrated, ‘pre-election programs.’”
Daniel Gonzalez, Engage Colorado

“By working with [the VPC], LCVEF was able to achieve our highest success rate – we had the best return rate on our Vote by Mail applications in LCVEF history, and by working with the VPC, we were better able to partner with our state leagues. The feedback from our state leagues was phenomenal. I am confident that we would not have had such success on the national level or with our state leagues, had we not partnered with [the VPC.]”
Former executive, League of Conservation Voters Education Fund (LCVEF)

No organization is an island. We’re proud to be part of the community of civic organizations, and we couldn’t do what we do without these valuable partnerships.
