What You Can Do
Have a minute?
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 Helpline (844-338-8743) 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 in states where none is required.
2Stay 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.

7 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 other government officials, community institutions, and businesses like transportation companies. We are expanding 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, CO, FL, GA, IA, IN, KS, MI, MO, ND, NH, RI, SC, TN, TX, VA, WI or WV that might be interested in partnering with VoteRiders? Tell us about them!
Have an afternoon or two?
...our Partner Organizations identify and refer to us thousands of voters who may lack ID. We need volunteers to follow up with these voters to offer a range of practical voter ID assistance. Training will be provided - all you need is an Internet-connected computer and a telephone!
Have a couple of days?
9Organize a Voter ID Clinic or 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.
