Who is VPC?

The Voter Participation Center (VPC) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization founded in 2003 to help members of the New American Majority register and vote. Since then, the organization has helped more than 5.8 million people register and cast ballots.*

Data Driven

VPC uses commercial and public data to identify people who are eligible to vote but who need to register.


VPC works with local election officials as well as national, state and local partners to help people register to vote and cast their ballots.

High Impact

VPC has registered more people by mail than any other organization in the United States. The organization rigorously tests and measures its program and is constantly improving its results.
