We are the new American majority.
The rising American electorate—young people, people of color and unmarried women—is 150 million people strong. They represent 64% of the people who can vote in America.*
Since 2003, the Voter Participation Center has helped 5.7 million voters register and get to the polls. More than 1.5 million were registered during the 2020 election.**
Voting is tied to your address.
More than 41% of us move every four years.That’s twice the rate of non-RAE members in the U.S. (Lake Research Partners)***

What Others Are Saying
An appropriately timed absentee ballot application and postage-paid envelope from @VoterCenter and Center for Voter Information on this 55th anniversary of the #VotingRightsAct. Huge thank you to CVI for making voting during #COVID19 safe and efficient! 🙏🗳️
This is how easy voting should and can be for everyone.
The most powerful move to make a difference for democracy in November is to give money now to @votercenter the Voter Participation Center. They target new voters, young adults, unmarried women, and people of color in battleground states. The most effective use of your dollar.
The Voter Participation Center is one of *the* most effective organizations I’ve found in getting more people to participate in our democracy and ensure that those who are traditionally underrepresented are fully represented in national, state, and local elections.
I’ve worked with multiple members of their staff and they’re a dedicated group of folks.
My wife and I have decided that we will #VoteByMail. We don’t care to stand in line either for #EarlyVoting at the @RichlandBOE or for traditional voting at our neighborhood polling place. Many thanks to the Center for Voter Information (@Women_Vote) for the pre-paid envelope.
