Election Administration

The Election Administration (EA) program was created to respond to ongoing problems that restrict Americans’ access to the democratic process. Project Vote’s team of experts works through research, litigation, advocacy, and field efforts to ensure that voter registration is accessible, effective, and enduring.

Right now, across the country and in all three branches of government, partisan battles are being fought over voter registration policies, voter list maintenance procedures, Election Day and early voting procedures, and other vital election administration issues that will shape the electorate in 2016 and beyond.

Project Vote’s Election Administration Program works to promote and protect policies that ensure that every eligible American can register, vote, and cast a ballot that counts. Our primary focuses are is on protecting registration drives from unnecessary restrictions; advocating for laws, policies, and procedures that remove barriers to registration and voting; and ensuring that list maintenance activities do not wrongly disenfranchise voters.
