Organizations need systems that ensure and document compliance with existing state laws and rules.

They need to have a good understanding of risk and set plans to respond to potential problems.

They need to recruit, train, and supervise organizers and managers, and often a significant number of volunteers or paid canvassers.

They need to set budgets, goals, and schedules, and manage their work to these plans.

Because of these and other factors, many strong organizations with successful records find themselves challenged to run a voter registration program that operates on a scale that has impact while also managing quality and risk effectively.

Project Vote can solve this problem by providing a range of sophisticated management, legal, and technical assistance to organizations undertaking nonpartisan voter registration drives.
