What We Do

Voter Engagement

11111112_577947985641426_4351743564829807707_nIt’s simple: we believe democracy works better when more people participate. That means our volunteers are out registering voters, reminding people to vote and making sure everyone gets the deets on the upcoming election.

Whether it’s passin’ policies to help our generation or collecting pledge-to-vote postcards at concerts, our volunteers are bringing democracy back.

 

Leader Makin’

10534749_610887652347459_2341967355423774531_nChicago Votes runs a hands-on leadership development program. Just like we believe democracy works better when more of us vote, we also believe democracy works better when more people run for office.

We teach new leaders the grassroots organizing basics. From field to fundraising, targeting to volunteer recruitment, we drop some knowledge on our new leaders so that they can organize better, faster more awesome campaigns. By the end of their program, organizers know how to run candidate and issue based campaigns. Apply within.
