TurboVote is an online tool that helps users [students] vote in every election—local, state, and national. It's easy to use and can help folks from all 50 states and D.C. overcome many of the process barriers to participation in our democracy! From modern day poll taxes and blatant and covert racial exclusion, to purposefully restrictive voter identification laws, our democracy was intentionally designed to make it difficult for many voters to cast their ballots with confidence and ease. Through the product design and intentional implementation strategies of our partners, TurboVote helps to lower process barriers for all eligible voters, and ensure that the voice of our electorate is powerful, heard, and moving toward a more fully enfranchised reality for all.
TurboVote is a product of Democracy Works, a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that works to simplify, modernize, and increase accessibility around this country’s voting process.
