Drive Votes

 

Democracy works better when more people do it, so we make that happen. We register voters (especially underrepresented folks like young people & people of color) all year round and help them get their ballots in come election time.

Turn Up and Turn Out

Oregon Motor Voter

A recent study by the Center for American Progress found that Oregon’s Automatic Voter Registration law, also known as Oregon Motor Voter, registered nearly 100,000 people who voted for the first time in 2016, and that 37 percent of AVR voters were age 30 or younger! When more folks are able to register to vote, it helps to change the face of our democracy and our elections.

Voter Pre-Registration

One of the biggest barriers to voting is registration. By getting young pre-registered to vote before they turn 18, we’re helping build good habits and strong voters. The Bus led the charge for pre-registration in 2007 and again in 2017, and as of January 1, 2018, all eligible 16 and 17 year-olds can pre-register to vote!
