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.
The most dedicated and complete-package absentee voting site on the web took it to the next level this year, getting some seriously awesome new tools for voters in need, like the absentee ballot application widget. And lots more to come! We are doing our darnedest to make voting as accessible and painless as possible.
Long Distance Voter is an amazing nonprofit nonpartisan voter resource, recognized nationally -- by both NGOs and government elections officials -- for its accurate and easy-to-understand information. It has helped millions of people register to vote and request an absentee ballot since 2008.
I have been a volunteer employee of Long Distance Voter since its inception in early 2008. I have watched it grow from a simple idea into a towering resource for voters and authority on all things absentee voting and voter registration. We have helped over 3 million voters nationwide get what they need to register and request absentee ballots. This has been a labor of love for all of us -- we all have day jobs, and moonlight as voting experts -- and it has been an unforgettable, unimaginably rewarding experience.
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.
