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.

There are few causes as near to my heart, few causes that inspire such a call to action in me as free and fair voting, today, tomorrow, forever. Long Distance Voter is a leader in this cause. Not only do they make it easy to vote absentee, they inform the world about voting in all its capacities.

LDV is by far the best in its bunch. On top of making sense of the notoriously convoluted system that is voting in America, today, it does so through a gorgeous and easy to navigate interface.

LDV is like the prettiest girl in school. Who doesn't need a lick of make up. And whose conversation skills are just as attractive.

I recommend LDV to everyone, even if their political views stand against mine, and thus, you know, the greater good of all mankind. At least they're voting. And at least they can do so with the greatest of ease.

Long Distance Voter has made casting a ballot easier for hundreds of thousands of people, and it provided the first fully centralized place for voters to navigate the voting rules in their state. Election laws can be confusing, and the service LDV provides to voters is crucial to our democratic process.

I think that Long Distance Voter provides an absolutely essential service that's fundamental to ensuring our democratic system functions true to itself and to prosper alongside the huge technological advances we have the fortune of living with. As someone who had their absentee ballot "lost in the shuffle" during the 2000 election, forcing me to fly home to vote in my first Presidential election, I am especially grateful that LDV exists and helps ensure that no one else will have to do what I did simply to vote....

This is by far the most valuable voter resource on the internet today (or any day).

Long Distance Voter is one of the most effective voter registration groups in the US. They are incredibly thorough and tech savvy and they serve a rapidly growing portion of the US voting population that has been woefully under-studied and underserved. And they do it as an all-volunteer operation. It's pretty remarkable. They also work really well with other organizations in the space and are completely mission driven.
