What You Can Do

Here are seven actions you can take to ensure our fellow citizens’ right to vote is protected:

  1. Learn if your state has a voter ID law and if so, its requirements. Confusion about voter ID is a pervasive problem in EVERY state. Our Voter ID Hotline receives as many calls from people in non-voter ID states as from those in states that require or request ID at the polls! Even poll workers are confused and sometimes ask for proof of ID when none is required.

  2. Take the VoteRiders Pledge to Take a Friend to the DMV (or whichever office issues voter ID in your state). If you live in a voter ID state, make sure you and your friends, neighbors and family members have the necessary ID. If you have questions or need assistance, please call our toll-free Hotline - 844-338-8743 - or Contact Us

  3. Stay current with the latest developments in voter ID by signing up for our email updates, following us on Facebook and Twitter, and sharing this information with your online and offline social networks in every state. Understanding the rules about voter registration, voter ID, and voting is NOT a partisan issue - it is an American issue.

  4. Educate people in your community about what they need (or don’t need) in order to vote. You can speak to, or display VoteRiders flyers at, your local schools, churches or other places of worship, or other civic or community organizations. Write an op-ed for your local paper. For talking points - and to distribute far and wide, start by downloading and printing our Voter ID Information Card for your state. Contact us if you need further information or have questions.

  5. Submit your video or written story of a citizen’s efforts to obtain a voter ID.

  6. Introduce us to potential partners! In our experience, the most effective way to organize to assist voters is to support local Voter ID Coalitions that include on-the-ground organizations, local election and government officials, community institutions, and businesses like taxi companies. In 2017, it is essential that we expand our network of Partner Organizations and support their Voter ID Coalitions. Do you or any of your contacts have connections with local organizations in AL, AZ, FL, GA, IN, KS, MI, MO, ND, NH, RI, SC, TN, TX, VA or WI that might be interested in partnering with VoteRiders? Tell us about them!

  7. Organize a fundraising drive to “Adopt a Voter ID Coalition” in a priority state. These local coalitions need support to offer a full range of voter ID services. Every dollar makes a difference, and donations to VoteRiders are 100% tax-deductible.
