Why It Matters
Every eligible voter should have a fair and equal opportunity to register to vote and to cast their ballot. Millions of Americans miss the opportunity to vote because they don’t know how to register or they miss their state’s deadline.
What We're Doing
As the nation’s largest and longest-standing grassroots voter registration organization, our volunteers register hundreds of thousands of voters and host community voter registration drives across the country each year. We concentrate our registration drives at locations that reach large numbers of unregistered voters, including high schools and community colleges, transit hubs, and naturalization ceremonies. Each year, we also help tens of thousands of Americans register online at VOTE411.org.

I understand every reason why you would choose to abstain from voting in the May 2023 primary election, believe me, I deeply understand aggressively avoiding another commitment.
But voting is an act of self-care, not a commitment.
