Register & Mobilize the Rising American Electorate

Help Americans Register to 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.

Mobilize the Rising American Electorate

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.

Register to Vote

If you’re a voting-eligible American and you’ve never been registered to vote, or if you’ve moved since you last registered to vote, it’s easy to submit or update your voter registration!
