Why Voter Registration Matters

Every eligible voter should have a fair and equal opportunity to register to vote and to cast their ballot. Millions of Americans miss the opportunity to vote because they don’t know how to register or they miss their state’s deadline to register.

What We Do

As the nation’s largest and longest-standing grassroots voter registration organization, each year our volunteers register voters and host community voter registration drives throughout our communities (Detroit, Hamtramck, and Highland Park). We concentrate our registration drives at locations that reach large numbers of unregistered voters, including high schools, community colleges, and naturalization ceremonies. We also help thousands of Americans register to vote online at

We do this to ensure all eligible Americans — especially first-time voters, non-college youth, new citizens, communities of color, and low-income Americans — have the opportunity to register and vote.
