What is the nonprofit sector’s role in democracy? Well for some, the answer is connecting people with their government by promoting voter registration and participation. For Arkansas nonprofits whose mission includes advocating for an active, engaged citizenry, Nonprofit VOTE provides a range of resources to help you engage your supporters and those you serve in voting.
“Voter engagement is a critical part of nonprofit work because it not only empowers the people and the communities we serve, but it also helps us further our missions.
Voter engagement makes our nonprofits relevant both during and after elections, helping to make us part of critical public policy discussions and allowing us to weigh in on our issues. Voting is associated with better health outcomes, cohesive communities, more effective advocacy, and more.”
