BREVARD COUNTY • VIERA, FLORIDA — Meet Luke Carter and Zoe Griffin, students at Viera High School who have started ‘Project Votes’ with a goal to get all students registered to vote at Viera High School.
Project Vote is a national, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization founded on the belief that an organized, diverse electorate is the key to a better America.
Project Vote’s mission is to build an electorate that accurately represents the diversity of this nation’s citizenry, and to ensure that every eligible citizen can register, vote, and cast a ballot that counts.
In recent years, Project Vote has mostly focused on improving voter registration. Their goals are to:
■ eliminate disparities in registration rates between minorities and majorities;
■ see state governments play a leading role in registering Americans to vote; and,
■ ensure that constituency-based organizations can run effective voter registration drives.
To achieve these objectives, we engage in advocacy, litigation, research, and technical assistance to:
■ promote voter registration laws, rules, and procedures that facilitate, rather than impede, voter registration;
■ ensure that list maintenance procedures do not remove eligible voters; and,
■ advance innovative solutions that remove the barriers to voting.
This work is conducted through three major program areas: Voter Participation, Election Administration, and Government Agency Voter Registration.
