Nonprofit VOTE

Nonprofit VOTE was founded in 2005 by a consortium of state nonprofit associations and national nonprofit networks to provide resources and trainings for the nonprofit sector on how to conduct nonpartisan voter participation and election activities. Nonprofit VOTE partners with America's nonprofits to help the people they serve participate and vote. We are the largest source of nonpartisan resources to help nonprofits integrate voter engagement into their ongoing activities and services.

Digital Voter Engagement Tools During the COVID Pandemic

Organizer: Nonprofit Vote

Almost two thirds of all voter registrations happen in person, but for months businesses, social services, and nonprofits have moved interactions with the people we serve online as we continue with social distancing measures. Some estimates predict that over 2 million new registrations will be lost each month that DMVs, social service offices, and campaign or field activities are shut down or significantly limited. If your organization looking for digital tools to find unregistered voters, help voters with registration, and educate voters about the voting process and their ballot to fill the gap, this webinar is for you.

Nonprofit VOTE is bringing together leading civic tech tools in a virtual "resource fair" so you can find the solutions you need for engaging voters. We're taking the effort out of researching each tool and the awkwardness out of the traditional vendor tables at a conference. Attend the webinar to see their demos and then use the Q&A box to get rapid answers to your questions about the platforms.

COVID-19 & Policy Options for Expanding Mail-in Ballots this November

Organizer: Nonprofit VOTE

COVID-19 is having a profound impact on our democracy, with many states postponing primary elections and changing rules regarding mail-in absentee voting, online voter registration, and polling places to accommodate federal guidelines around social distancing. A secure and accessible election is in the best interest of all Americans, and the CARES Act includes $400 million in emergency funds for states to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the coronavirus for the 2020 federal election cycle. With less than 7 months to plan and implement sweeping changes, states will need to take swift action to protect voters, election staff, and election integrity. Now is the time to make sure your state is ready for the November election. Learn how you can be an informed and effective advocate for state-level policy change during this one-hour webinar.

Voting Rights and Support for People with Felony Convictions

Organizer: Nonprofit VOTE

Restoration of voting rights for ex-felons has been in the news recently, especially with the passage of Amendment 4 in Florida in 2018 (and subsequent legal and legislative challenges). But zooming out, we see that across the country there is a confusing patchwork of laws for people who have a felony conviction in their past. Join us as we learn from Jon Sherman, Senior Counsel at Fair Elections Center, about current laws regarding felon re-enfranchisement, where and why laws have changed in the past couple of years, and where you can direct individuals for more information and support. Lending a field perspective will be Samuel Gross, a board member for Revive My Vote, a nonpartisan student organization at William & Mary Law School that helps Virginians regain their right to vote after completing the terms of their incarceration.

Nonprofits Count 2020: Messaging Campaigns

Organizer: Nonprofit VOTE

The 2020 Census is right around the corner for most of us and counting of remote communities has already begun. How are you ensuring that your clients and community are fully counted? Participation in the census is vital to ensure that federal funding is allocated where it is most needed, but the Census can seem confusing and doesn't come around very often. An effective messaging campaign can make the difference between being counted and being left out... for the next 10 years.

Join us as we feature speakers from two excellent Census messaging campaigns. Jeri Green from National Urban League will share with us resources and news from the Make Black Count campaign. From NALEO Educational Fund, Adan Chavez, Deputy Director of National Census Program for their ¡Hágase Contar! campaign will also be on hand to talk about their work, trainings, and other activations.
