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 more than 3.5 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.
The Rising American Electorate—unmarried women, people of color, and millennials—are now the majority of eligible voters. With our groundbreaking research on voter mobilization and issue engagement, we’ve pioneered new ways to get them to the polls.
