Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Civil Rights, Voter Education & Registration, Voting Rights

Mission: Long Distance Voter increases civic participation and removes impediments to voting by helping US citizens register and vote by mail.

Results: We've had over 3 million visitors since launching in 2008. We've had almost 1 million visitors in October 2012. In the past four years we've registered over 120,000 voters and we've helped another 530,000+ visitors get their absentee ballots. And we'd done this all without a single full time staff member.

What a great idea. It couldn't be easier to use, either!

As a college student and then young professional that moved often, I found it could be difficult and confusing to check where I was registered to vote. The information is all over the place. Honestly, with today's busy lifestyle, making it to the polls in time to vote has be a challenge too.

Long Distance Voter makes it easy.

You can check your status and voter registration data on the books, register absentee, and be secure about your vote being counted in the next election.

It's plain and simple. Plus, with conservative attacks on people's ability to vote via Voter ID laws and SCOTUS striking down portions of the Civil Rights Movement landmark legislation, the Voting Rights Act, voting by mail is a way to combat racist voting laws at the polls, and make sure your vote is counted.
