Help America reach 80 percent voter turnout.


Sure, it’s an ambitious goal. But when America’s leading brands and organizations come together in a nonpartisan, long-term commitment to increase voter participation, anything is possible. Every TurboVote Challenge partner encourages their employees, customers, and communities to participate in elections, making it easier for them to do so. These programs strengthen employee and consumer engagement. But more importantly, they strengthen our democracy.

Reuters: “Democracy Works, which aims to create "a more representative and inclusive democracy," said voter turnout had not been above 80 percent since 1888. An estimated 57.5 percent of eligible citizens voted in the 2012 presidential election, according to the Bipartisan Policy Center.“

The Wall Street Journal: "The challenge’s 80% [...] goal — a more-than 20-point increase over the 58.2% turnout rate in 2012 — is helping the nonpartisan group attract big partners even while business backed away from the parties’ nominating conventions this summer."

Nonprofit Quarterly: “Whether the spectacle of this year’s presidential election will result in record voter turnout come November is yet to be seen. But with get-out-the-vote efforts like the TurboVote Challenge, many voters—both young and old—have more resources on their side to help them navigate our country’s muddy democratic waters.”

Newsweek: “With Twitter averaging 313 million users, and Facebook 1.7 billion monthly active users, Flaxman anticipates the impact these partnerships can have on voter registration in this election, and the ones to follow. “I think if we just rely on politicians to get out the vote, we’re never going to see mass participation,” Mr. Flaxman said [...]. ‘The only way we’ll see that is if we think that’s a civic or civil responsibility that everyone is in charge of in our society.’”
