Your Ballot, Your Voice campaign. The campaign coordinates civic engagement and information sharing among communities and organizations around our three pillars and gives you shareable assets to promote your program.

VoteAmerica is a turnout organization. In addition to a suite of sophisticated and easy to use voter tools and resources, we turn out voters. We’re running an unmatched “Ballot Chase” peer-to-peer SMS and paid media program to make sure people register to vote, request their ballots (if they choose to vote by mail), sign their envelopes and check their signatures, sign up for election reminders, and return their ballots by Election Day.
VoteAmerica will provide everyone with the latest state by state information to include: key dates, vote-by-mail guidelines, and timelines, as well as the facts on the variety of ways and locations that people can vote and/or drop off their ballots in person this year as a national election meets headlong with the COVID-19 pandemic.
We have a simple VoteAmerica Action Guide that you can use to get started. We also have great graphics, social assets for influencers, and links that you can embed directly in your social channels or website to make it as easy as possible. We'll do the rest and are happy to customize activations for you and track your impact.
