In the U.S., by virtue of citizenship: EVERY CITIZEN IS A VOTER.
Unfortunately, so many of our citizens do not vote. 90 million citizens are not voting. They seek information on voting and where ever they look, it is overwhelming. The rules, requirements and deadlines are different in every state. Ultimately, the barriers are too high. Your donation will help us bring down the barriers to voting.
Here is our story: Fourteen years ago, our founder was living overseas and decided she wanted to vote. She went to the U.S. consulate to see how to she could participate. They handed her a blurry form and a 500-page instruction book designed as a reference book for trained personnel. Six-months later she had automated that archaic process to create the first-ever online ballot request process for US citizens and military voters overseas.
It was 2004 and the war in Iraq was front page news every day. Her site went live and was brought to its knees with requests from U.S. citizens and soldiers around the world who wanted to vote. The profoundly rewarding experience of helping all of these fellow citizens discover that by using her technology, they could participate in the franchise, changed her life and work. It also changed the voting prospects of millions of our citizens.
Fast forward to today and you will see that the original effort grew to become U.S. Vote Foundation (US Vote) and its initiative, Overseas Vote. Enabling every citizen to be a voter is the vision and mission that we work toward.
By combining volunteer and professional talent with data and technology, we are crushing the complexity of voting. We won't stop until Every Citizen is a Voter. Your donation will help us to get this important work done.
You've probably heard: Every vote counts. That includes yours. For us, at US Vote, every donation counts. That includes yours.
What this means to us: This fundraising campaign is vitally important to us. The funds we raise will be used specifically to develop a world-class Voter Alerts system to reach millions of voters by text and email to Make a Difference in 2018.
This new system will inform people about all levels of elections that they can participate in - federal and state and importantly - it will include local elections happening closest to home - elections that impact peoples' lives the most.
Elections are won when voters show up to cast their ballots!
Thank you for your faith in our organization. Your donation will support the ongoing technology development and voter outreach that will enable our Foundation to reach the 90 million non-voters and deliver on our promise: Every Citizen is a Voter. We won't let you down.
