Illinois Nonprofits Vote! 

Forefront is Your Go-To For All Things Civic Engagement 

Nonprofits represent democracy’s highest ideals of public service, active citizenship, and commitment to a better society. With their natural engagement assets and unparalleled reach, nonprofits are particularly well suited to encourage voter participation. And they have a proven impact on participation when they do.

Nonprofit VOTE’s 2016 evaluation, Engaging New Voters, showed that voters contacted in-person by nonprofits during services voted at higher rates than other voters in their state across all demographics. Nonprofits had their greatest participation impact on voters considered less likely to vote.

Registering and helping people vote is one way to further empower the people we serve.
