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!

Choose your state to get started!

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.

New State-By-State Data on Demographics, Voting and Registration Rates, Economic Impact, Health Care, and More Elected Officials and Candidates Must Recognize the Economic and Political Power of Unmarried Women and Speak To Their Issues

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.
