The impact of your support
Fair Election Center is working hard to improve election administration, ensure access to the ballot through litigation, and provide educational information on voter registration and voting rules through partnership work with campus-based organizations at colleges across the country. The Center investigates under-the-radar violations of the right to vote and has sued to enforce federal and state law requirements in novel and economical ways. The Center will also spend significant time developing and implementing rapid responses to serious problems our national and grassroots partners encounter in their state work in the lead-up to the 2020 election.

Why this work is important
For our communities and economies to be sustainable, inclusive and equitable, every citizen needs to have the opportunity to have a voice in government. Given the steadily increasing threats to voting rights, voters — particularly from underrepresented communities — need to be armed with the knowledge they need to overcome new barriers, and litigation has become more important than ever to defend and protect our citizens’ right to vote.
Our track record
Fair Elections Center’s work has contributed to increased youth turnout in 2018, helped re-enfranchise more than a million Floridians through litigation, and so much more. In 2020, we will continue these efforts, not just around the critical 2020 national election cycle, but also the countless local races, ballot initiatives and measures of vital importance to local communities. We continue to build on the successes from the last few years and work to maintain the momentum going forward. The voices of traditionally underrepresented communities need to be heard in these elections, and our work is dedicated to ensuring that outcome, in partnership with funders, grassroots partners, advocates, students, faculty and academic institutions.
