EDUCATE + REGISTER + TURN OUT THE VOTE

Voter registration + turnout have been rising, but 30% of eligible voters are still not registered. 47% of eligible voters did not vote in America in 2022. 
That's over 100 million eligible citizens who are not participating in our democracy.

We have work to do to ensure that all Americans CAN + DO VOTE!

TURN OUT is everything!

EXPANDING THE ELECTORATE+PROTECTING DEMOCRACY

 

THE WISCONSIN DEMOCRACY FUND
A partnership between Force Multiplier + the America Votes Action Fund supporting 5 grassroots groups doing direct voter contact during the April 2023 Wisconsin Supreme Court election. 

 

Outcome: 1.8M Wisconsin voters turned out to give Judge Janet Protasiewicz an 11 point victory, flipping the Wisconsin Supreme Court to a progressive majority. This new majority will be able to address gerrymandered election districts, voting rights, an outdated 1849 abortion ban, workers’ rights + more.

THE OHIO DEMOCRACY FUND

Supported the Ohio Womens' Alliance + Ohio Student Association in registering, educating + mobilizing voters to defend abortion rights + voter-led ballot initiatives. 

 

Outcome: 57% voted NO to defeat the August referendum which would have required 60% approval for future ballot initiatives. TargetSmart reported a surge in turnout among women, youth + Black voters, exactly the demographics targeted by the groups we supported. A constitutional amendment to protect reproductive freedom is on the ballot in November. 

THE MONTANA DEMOCRACY FUND
