How it works

MAKE A GRASSROOTS DONATION

With $25, we can send applications to 20 voters. We're all about transparency and making grassroots donations go further. Thanks to our Union printer and Civic Design Center's tested absentee ballot request design, we can keep costs down and reach more voters.

Voter Gets Ballot Request Form

We mail targeted voters at highest risk from COVID-19 and voter disenfranchisement in swing states their absentee ballot application package. Wherever possible, it has everything they need to request a mail-in ballot: application and a return envelope with postage! That’s right, no need for a stamp.

You Get Out The Vote (at home)

Grassroots volunteers like you send texts and calls to these same voters reminding them to complete and mail back the request form! Studies show that follow up contact like this can increase turnout by 4 percentage points. Sign up to volunteer to help today!

VOTING AT HOME IN 2020

Success! Voters receive their absentee ballot and can safely vote from home, ensuring that these voters don’t have to choose between their health and exercising their right to vote in 2020, and preventing Donald Trump from using a public health crisis as a tool of voter disenfranchisement.
