Organization Overview
America Votes is the coordination hub of the progressive community, leading collaborative efforts among a diverse coalition of more than 400 state and national partner organizations to advance progressive policies, win elections and protect every American’s right to vote. America Votes works nationally and in more than 20 states to provide a range of services to partners, including strategic planning, advocacy and electoral campaign coordination, data tools and targeting services, and on-the-ground leadership in key states.

 

America Votes is committed to developing long-term roadmaps and setting critical goals for states. With an eye on redistricting and the consequences of extreme conservative gerrymanders and attacks upon voting rights, these efforts are essential to building progressive power in the states, session-by-session and election-by-election.

 

America Votes and its partner organizations are at the heart of the progressive movement’s effort to win elections and create change. In 2020, the America Votes coalition deployed their largest-ever voter engagement and mobilization effort to reach millions of voters in states.
