A Nonprofit Response to Democracy’s Challenge

Excerpt: 

[E]ven the most voter friendly states have very substantial gaps in voter participation between high- and low-income, young and old, and across the lines of race. That’s because voter-friendly policies may make voting “possible,” but they don’t really do anything to make voting “probable.” ...

[P]articipation gaps in large part reflect mobilization gaps—gaps between who is personally contacted about voting and who isn’t. ...

This is where nonprofits can make a big difference. ...

[O]nce contacted by nonprofit staff and volunteers about voting, these prospective voters turned out at higher rates than other registered voters across all demographic groupings. These increases were largest among those least likely to vote. We reach the right people, and when we engage them, we can make a big difference.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO #ROCKTHEVOTE

Let’s be real – there’s a lot at stake EVERY year. That’s why we #RockTheVote

When we #RockTheVote, we embrace the challenge to define tomorrow.

We are powerful. We are aware. We are on it.

To #RockTheVote means ensuring our voices are heard. It means knowing what’s on the ballot, keeping tabs on current events, and registering to vote at our current address. It means volunteering to encourage our families, friends and communities to #RocktheVote. And on Election Day, we #RocktheVote!

It’s too important to stay on the sidelines. With the ballot, the franchise, as our strongest tool, we can create the future we want for our families, our communities and ourselves.
