New Year, New Website

Nonprofit VOTE is kicking off 2014 with a new look! Today we're debuting our redesigned website. The site is simple, clean, easy to navigate, and of course nonpartisan and nonprofit friendly! Although the design may be different, the quality content and helpful resources haven't changed.

Featured on the site is our new online voter engagement resource library. It's the web's most comprehensive collection of voter engagement resources and our filter makes it easier than ever to find what you're looking for. Use it to sort by topic, type, media, or language or browse the entire library.

Take a look! You can still find us at www.nonprofitvote.org.
