About #VoteTogether

#VoteTogether is a national initiative that is bringing the fun into voting. We collaborate with local nonprofits to organize community celebrations near polling locations during early vote and on Election Day as a way to engage community members and increase voter participation.

We are partnered with pioneering researcher and Columbia University political science professor, Donald P. Green, who has analyzed our 2016 effort and found a four percentage point improvement on participation when communities come together to create simple, fun, events on Election Day or early vote days.
