MassVOTE is a non-partisan, non-profit organization that seeks to increase voter participation in our state. We advocate for electoral justice for the sake of building a government truly representative of the people.
In 1999, a small group of community leaders came together to close the voter turnout gap between white, suburban areas and urban communities of color.
Today MassVOTE works on a nonpartisan basis to increase voter registration, education, and participation in historically underrepresented communities in Massachusetts to promote social, economic, environmental, and racial justice.
MassVOTE trains nonprofit staff and volunteers - people with legitimacy, credibility, and relationships in the community- to tie voting people's everyday concerns. When people go to community nonprofits for healthcare, affordable housing, and childcare, MassVOTE helps them become engaged voters whose voices will be heard.
