I VOTE BECAUSE...
A non-partisan campaign to register voters & get out the vote in 2018
Voter turnout is grim: More than 200 million Americans were eligible to vote in 2016 but only 59 percent made it to the polls. In the 2014 midterm election only 37 percent turned out, the lowest in 70 years.
For a democracy to thrive, we the people need to exercise our right to vote and make our voices heard.
PROOF has launched I VOTE BECAUSE..., a public service ad campaign with a call to action for individuals to register to vote and to go to the polls on election day. These ads will appear on television and in social media; on the sides of buses, subways and bus stops; in houses of worship; and on the walls of schools and community centers.
Please donate to help us reach all 50 states.
The national I VOTE BECAUSE… campaign will roll out in St. Louis, Milwaukee, upstate New York and Jacksonville before expanding to communities across the country. PROOF will partner with local organizations in cities and towns to register voters as we collect their stories and take their photos.
PROOF is partnering with TOKY, League of Women Voters, Wisconsin Voices and The City of Milwaukee.
