VoteRiders Partner Organizations

Partner Organizations support VoteRiders' mission and actively collaborate with us to accomplish it.  

Some of the ways VoteRiders collaborates with Partners and other organizations:

  • Educating and advising voters and other stakeholders about voter ID laws.
  • Providing voter ID experts to answer questions and provide assistance in securing ID to vote via our national toll-free Voter ID Helpline (844-338-8743), our website, and info@voteriders.org.
  • For low-income voters: reimbursing the cost of any documents required to obtain a voter ID such as a certified copy of the voter’s birth certificate, name-change court order, etc. as well as a replacement driver’s license if necessary; and helping to arrange transportation to the local government office to secure their voter ID or any required documents.
  • Providing free voter ID education materials online, including our Voter ID Info Cards and Voter ID Guides e.g. for voter registration and GOTV drives.
  • Trainings for organizations and volunteers on how to obtain voter ID and required supporting documents.
  • Working with pro bono lawyers (e.g., Association of Pro Bono Counsel) and government officials’ staff to help voters secure necessary documents.
  • Training canvassers for door-to-door and phone-bank voter registration and Get Out the Vote (GOTV) drives: how to identify voters who need help or have questions and connecting them with VoteRiders as well as explaining the voter ID law.
  • Tabling at community events and presentations to organizations.
  • Facilitating local Voter ID Coalitions, including providing and supporting a locally-based VoteRiders Coordinator to organize outreach and activities. Coalitions bring together on-the-ground organizations, local election and other government officials, community institutions, businesses like transportation companies, etc.
  • Organizing Voter ID Coalitions, Voter ID Clinics and other community events, e.g., Voter ID Month, Week, etc.

Election Protection Coalition

The Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law is the lead partner of the non-partisan Election Protection Coalition, of which VoteRiders is also a partner. It was formed to ensure that all voters have an equal opportunity to participate in the political process.

The coalition features the Election Protection Hotline: 1-866-OUR-VOTE (866ourvote.org), administered by the Lawyers’ Committee, and 1-888-Ve-Y-Vota (http://veyvota.yaeshora.info), administered by the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials Education Fund.
