National Voter Education Week

National Voter Education Week is October 2 to 6, 2023.

National Voter Education Week (NVEW) is an open-source, nonpartisan voter education campaign held the first week of October. It equips voters with the tools, information, and confidence to cast their ballots. NVEW is a resource hub for leaders of any community and context who want to give their networks the information they need to confidently cast their ballots.  During this week of interactive education, voters learn to find their polling location, understand their ballot, make a plan to vote in person or by mail, and more. 

Launched in 2020, NVEW works with other civic holidays to help guide voters through the entire voter engagement process – from registration to turnout – in fun and creative ways. Since its launch, thousands of local, state, and national partners have worked together to educate hundreds of thousands of voters nationwide.

This generation of new voters is enthusiastic about civic participation and eager to make their voices heard.  However, new voters often point to systemic barriers and lack of knowledge as key factors that keep them out of the voting booth. 

Voter education is essential to the voter journey, filling the gap between registration and casting a ballot while helping voters – especially new voters – navigate the democratic process confidently. NVEW will help ensure that those registered to vote cast a ballot.

Dozens of organizations lead National Voter Education Week from across the corporate, public, and nonprofit sectors, all of which are committed to helping voters participate in our democracy with confidence.
