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.

Long Distance Voter is guided by a simple premise: Voting is every American's right and each one of us should be able to excercise that right with ease. Through a combination of web expertise and volunteer elbow grease, Long Distance Voter is leading the way to making that simple idea a reality.

And lots more to come! We are doing our darnedest to make voting as accessible and painless as possible.

Long Distance Voter has helped over 600,000 people register to vote and get their absentee ballots since 2008. It is the internet's most comprehensive resource for absentee voting laws, rules, deadlines, and forms. I'm proud to be a part of that.
