“In most parts of the country, transgender and nonbinary voters face significant barriers to the ballot box — which have only increased with the recent wave of restrictive voting laws.
In particular, requiring identification in order to cast a ballot can make voting inaccessible and even unsafe for trans and nonbinary people whose IDs don’t match their name or gender. Many states also have strict and extensive processes for updating IDs, creating an additional obstacle.
To help trans and nonbinary voters navigate these rules, and in honor of Pride Month, HeadCount has partnered with VoteRiders to launch #TransPeopleVote. The initiative is part of the larger “Vote With Pride” campaign, aimed at supporting all LGBTQ voters.”
