New Organizing Institute and Project Vote Announce New Home for DECC

By Project Vote April 1, 2015

New Organizing Institute (NOI) and Project Vote are pleased to announce that the Data Entry Consolidation Center (DECC) will now be housed at Project Vote.

Created in 2008 by NOI, Service Employees International Union, and ISSI, DECC provides centralized management for scanning, data entering, and transmitting voter registration applications, petitions, pledge cards, and other constituency contact material.

DECC has provided these efficient, affordable services from its home at NOI since 2012.

“DECC is a critical resource for dozens of civic engagement groups across the country, in particular local and state-based groups who otherwise lack the infrastructure to manage their incoming data at the highest standards,” said Ethan Roeder, Executive Director of NOI.

As part of a recent process to refine their program priorities, NOI has decided to transfer ownership of the DECC system to another organization.

“We’re thrilled that an organization as storied and committed to civic engagement infrastructure as Project Vote has stepped up to take this on,” added Mr. Roeder.

Project Vote, a nonprofit, nonpartisan 501(c)(3) with over 20 years experience in helping community organizations conduct civic engagement programs, has agreed to become the new home of DECC.

“DECC is a vital piece of the voter engagement infrastructure, and a critical bridge between engagement efforts and ongoing community organizing,” said Amy Busefink, deputy director of Project Vote. “We are thrilled to be able to offer this service to our partners, and we look forward to maintaining the high standards of quality that DECC has provided since 2008.”
