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.
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!

Kalena Thomhave of American Prospect writes about our latest report:
Unmarried women are less likely than their married counterparts to register and to vote but they could be a key Democratic voting bloc in November if candidates get moving to address their issues.…
A new report from the Washington-based Voter Participation Center, an organization that registers voters and studies voting habits, finds that unmarried women could be a powerful political force, but many don’t vote or aren’t registered to vote.
The Voter Participation Center today released a groundbreaking new report: “Unmarried Women in America: Cornerstone of our Democracy.” The report includes previously unreleased research on unmarried women in key battleground states, including data on demographics, voting and registration rates, age, economic impact, health care, educational attainment, and more.
VPC pioneered the concept of a “marriage gap” among women voters, recognizing that whether a woman is either married or unmarried is one of the most powerful predictors of differences in civic participation and voting behavior.
