What would it take to make sure every eligible voter has the ID - and information - they need to vote with confidence in 2020? We have a vision for how to make it happen, and we'd be honored to have you join us (as a donor, volunteer or partner organization!) in making it a reality.
- We see every organization conducting a voter registration drive ALSO providing accurate voter ID information to ensure people are truly ready to vote. Our "Direct Voter Contact" partnerships with organizations large and small in 2018 showed that this is a very effective way to improve voter readiness on a scale that can meet the voter ID challenge.
- We see easily accessible and free assistance available to every voter if they run into a voter ID barrier.
- We see a coordinated and well-resourced effort to educate voters about what IDs are valid for voting in their state - or that no additional ID is required for registered voters. In 2018 we piloted new voter outreach methods via movie theaters, radio stations, cell phones, and digital media. These channels made a big difference in our ability to reach a wider cross-section of voters, and we want to deepen and expand these efforts.
- We see comprehensive and accurate training for every DMV clerk, poll worker or other front-line worker who implements voter ID laws.
