We help average activists defend voting and fair elections.
We pick biggest-bang-for-the-buck voting projects that have a clear path to victory, impact the most voters, have ripple-effect potential; and involve work average activists can do.
About Lift Every Vote
Voting is a complex field, legislated and operated at federal, state, county and precinct level. We break it down, helping activists and average citizens to prioritize, strategize, plan, and execute effective voting advocacy.
Our goals: 100% citizen eligibility, 100% participation, and fair, secure, and verifiable counts.
Our projects include:
Developing teaching materials that help citizens understand our election systems, and how to strategize effective voting advocacy.
Informing voters nationwide about issues like signature mis-matches on mail-in ballots, that can block their ballots from being counted. (We sent 37K postcards to Florida on the signature mis-match issue, in support of the Second Chances coalition, before this issue made the news!)
Via public records requests, obtaining state files of purged voters, processing these en masse through the USPS lookup tools, and collaborating with other orgs to text these voters prior to their registration deadlines.
Helping average citizens work on reforms like Automatic Voter Registration.
Promoting pro-voting policies at the federal, state, and county level, and helping to educate voters on pro-voting candidates.
Fighting attempts to restrict citizens’ eligibility and access.
