America Votes is the coordination hub of the progressive community, working with more than 400 state and national partner organizations to strengthen democracy, win elections, and protect every American’s right to vote.

Our work is centered on fostering a culture of strong civic participation, increasing voter engagement and mobilization, and advocating for fair, modern elections.

Voter Engagement and Mobilization

America Votes works to create a fairer, more representative democracy by increasing voter participation across the country. Our coalition carries out non-partisan, education-focused programs to engage voters, particularly newly eligible and infrequent voters.

Through in-person canvassing, direct mail, phone calls, and texts, we provide the information voters need to feel confident and informed about the voting process in person or via mail.

Creating Change From the Grassroots

We believe change in our country is driven by harnessing knowledge and energy from the grassroots.

That’s why America Votes works at the local level in more than 20 states, executing bold strategies, providing data infrastructure, and making strong investments in community-led programs to build power.

Our local team members live and work in their communities, collaborating with a coalition of partners to ensure that voters are engaged year-round and not just during elections.

Fighting Voter Suppression & Protecting Access to the Ballot

America Votes and our partners share a common mission to protect every American’s right to vote. More than ever, we are working to enact desperately needed voting rights legislation and fight back against efforts to suppress voters.

Our organization has taken the lead throughout our state network to protect and expand voting rights, and work with state and local officials to improve election administration.

Racial Equity Statement

As a leader of collaborative efforts to mobilize voters, protect voting rights, and win elections, America Votes is committed to advancing racial equity within our organization and across our coalition.

We acknowledge the systematic racism that permeates all facets of our society, beginning with the foundational right to vote. America Votes is also engaging with an understanding of the ways gender, sexuality and other forms of oppression intersect with race and how those relationships impact inequities faced by our staff, our partners, and the communities that we engage in our work.

America Votes strives to model our commitment to racial equity through our internal and external operations, programs, and partnerships. We acknowledge the inequitable structures that continue to exist and are moving forward with a sustained commitment in time, resources and people to challenge structural racism and work towards creating a reflective organization and democracy.
