American democracy is always a work in progress. Our nation was founded on the dream of a system of government that truly represented the will of the people. However, who those people were, and how loudly they spoke, has been contestedï¿½often bitterly. Today, more than 200 years after our countryï¿½s founding, Americans are still fightingï¿½in the streets, in the courts, and in legislaturesï¿½to expand the franchise and achieve a more perfect electorate.
Project Vote is a national, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization founded on the belief that an organized, diverse electorate is the key to a better America. Project Voteï¿½s mission is to build an electorate that accurately represents the diversity of this nationï¿½s citizenry, and to ensure that every eligible citizen can register, vote, and cast a ballot that counts.
In recent years, Project Vote has mostly focused on improving voter registration. Our goals are to:
ï¿½ï¿½ eliminate disparities in registration rates between minorities and majorities;
ï¿½ï¿½ see state governments play a leading role in registering Americans to vote; and,
ï¿½ï¿½ ensure that constituency-based organizations can run effective voter registration drives.
ï¿½ï¿½ promote voter registration laws, rules, and procedures that facilitate, rather than impede, voter registration;
ï¿½ï¿½ ensure that list maintenance procedures do not remove eligible voters; and,
ï¿½ï¿½ advance innovative solutions that remove the barriers to voting.
