Engaging New Voters: Nonprofit VOTE releases new report
Late Wednesday, our national partner, Nonprofit VOTE, released Engaging New Voters: The Impact of Nonprofit Voter Outreach on Client and Community Turnout, based on an analysis of 129 nonprofits in nine states that conducted voter engagement work in the 2014 election cycle.
Key takeaways from the report include that personal contact by nonprofit staff and volunteers increased voter turnout rates across all demographic and that nonprofits had their biggest impact on people least expected to vote and most likely to be overlooked by partisan campaigns.

Nonprofit VOTE will be holding a free webinar on Thursday, December 10 featuring Nonprofit VOTE’s executive director Brian Miller, director of research Julian Johannesen and national field director Lindsey Hodel to discuss the report's findings in detail and implications for the 2016 election cycle. Those interested in attending can RSVP here.
With the presidential primaries quickly approaching in Massachusetts on March 1, now is the time to learn about how nonprofit and community based organizations can help ensure high voter turnout in the Commonwealth.
