Sign on to Help Us Protect Voting Rights

The Franchise Project aims to educate, excite, and empower grassroots activists to engage in effective voting rights advocacy at the local level. Led by seasoned voting rights activists who have worked on election protection efforts across the country, our team used that knowledge to create the Voting Access Scorecard. The Scorecard breaks down voting rights into 30 simple, easy to understand metrics and assigns each state a score based on those metrics, allowing you to quickly see how your state performs, and what it can do to improve. We also offer actions you can take today to make voting easier in your state.
