- In the past, nonprofits have frequently equated voter engagement with voter registration. However, equal numbers of survey respondents reported carrying out voter registration, voter education, and get-out-the-vote activities. This is an encouraging sign and demonstrates that many nonprofits have embraced a broader approach to voter engagement work.
- Almost a quarter of respondents either sponsored or co-sponsored a candidate forum!
- Beyond voter engagement activities, many nonprofits undertook measures to support and improve our democracy--nearly half of respondents encouraged staff and others to volunteer as poll workers, while nearly a quarter distributed information on election reform.
- Nonprofits continue to utilize Nonprofit VOTE’s website and complimentary materials, with posters and fact sheets being the most popular.
