Unmarried women, people of color, and millennials could cast a majority of votes in every election — but only if they vote.
Since 2003, we’ve helped register nearly 4 million American voters through our pioneering mail and online voter registration programs. In 2016 alone, we helped register almost a million – and we’re just getting started.
