Vote.org uses technology to simplify political engagement, increase voter turnout, and strengthen American democracy.
- We reject outright the idea that voter participation is low in the US because Americans are apathetic, and instead focus on the external factors that make it hard to cast ballots.
- In 2018 alone, we registered 1 million people to vote; ran a proactive Get Out The Vote campaign targeting 40+ million people in 30 states; ran 30 different experiments on the efficacy of SMS as a turnout tool; convinced 400+ companies to give 250,000+ employees paid time off to vote; worked with Taylor Swift, Barack Obama, and Beyonce to reach young voters; purchased 2600+ billboards encouraging people to VOTE on Tuesday, November 6; and ran full-page, full-color ads on the back of almost every single college newspaper in America.
- Fun fact: if you ask Siri how to vote, she’ll send you to Vote.org.
- We’re ambitious, efficient, metric-driven, passionate, low-ego, and fun to work with.
