Fight voter suppression / Send GOTV Postcards
Reclaim Our Vote (ROV) is a long-term project at The Center for Common Ground. ROV is a non-profit, nonpartisan group that increases turnout among voters of color.
After the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act in Shelby v Holder (2013), many states (particularly in the South) immediately changed voting rules, restricting voter access and participation. ROV volunteers are targeting North Carolina, Texas, Arizona, Alabama, Mississippi and Georgia in 2020 with postcards, phone/text banks, geofencing, GOTV billboards, rides to the polls and Election Day monitoring.
Apply to be a paid poll worker
An incredible number of poll workers are over age 70 and at greater health risk with the pandemic. Please apply to be a paid poll worker with your state and bolster their numbers.
When people see someone that looks like them inside the polls it is a more welcoming environment. In most states, you only need to be 16 years old.
Note: Often, you can only be a poll worker in the county where you are registered to vote. Students and people who recently moved will need to update their voter registration information before they can apply to be a paid poll worker. In most states, those updates can be done online at county election websites. See our page "Your Vote" for a link to check your voter registration.
Our democracy works best when we're all involved.
