Nights & Weekends
One way the Voters Not Politicians Education Fund is helping to increase voter participation is by working municipality-by-municipality to increase voters’ early voting options. We launched the “Nights and Weekends” project in 2020, and increased access to the ballot for 707,000 voters in 17 municipalities. In 2022, we are solidifying those wins and expanding our reach into more municipalities.
- Grow and support grassroots teams that lobby their local leaders for more early voting options, including nights and weekends hours.
- Help clerks and city leaders get the funding and political support they need to be able to increase voting options.
- Expand early voting options before election day in underserved communities.
- Educate voters in expanded Nights & Weekends communities of their new voting options.
