Voter registration is only the first step: we also have to make sure that registrants get on the rolls, and stay on the rolls.
That’s why Project Vote works to protect eligible voters from
wrongful purges, voter caging, “ no match, no vote” programs, and other dangerous efforts to “clean-up” the lists.
Additionally, we fight to make sure that voter registration and list maintenance policies are publicly transparent, in order to ensure that states are not using arbitrary, error-prone, or politically-motivated criteria for rejecting applicants or purging voters.
