ABOUT RECLAIM OUR VOTE

RECLAIM OUR VOTE is a volunteer-driven, nonpartisan voter outreach campaign organized by the Center for Common Ground of Virginia, with the help of the NAACP, Black Voters Matter, VoteRiders, DemLabs, Mi Familia Vota and other organizations. We’re contacting de-registered yet voting eligible voters of color in Virginia, North Carolina, Mississippi, Texas, Colorado and Arizona in 2019 (and many additional states in 2020), to help them re-register and get to the polls. Over the next several months, we’ll need volunteers from all over the United States to help us contact these voters.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS

Since 2017 they have been registering and turning out under-represented voters in Virginia, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi, Texas and Arizona. 2018 saw massive voter suppression in Georgia, Texas, and North Carolina, with voter registration forms destroyed, or not accepted. (See Voter Suppression for details.)

For the 2018 midterm election, Reclaim Our Vote provided a way to contact voters who had been moved from “registered” to “inactive” and de-registered (“unregistered”) status while there was still time to encourage them to re-register. As those deadlines passed, the focus changed to encouraging still-registered voters to vote.Black Voters Matter and the Reclaim Our Vote project made 253,000 phone calls in the fall of 2018, including 185,000 calls to Georgia (with Black Voters Matter), 29,000 calls to Mississippi, 19,000 calls to Virginia, and 5,000 calls to Texas. Canvassing teams on the ground followed up with those who could not be reached by phone and we provided a number to call to voters who needed transportation to the poll.

Voting is the bedrock of our democracy! Reclaim our vote.
