All Voting is Local

The freedom to vote is at the heart of our democracy. All Voting is Local exists to expose and dismantle threats to voter freedom. Even though major elections happen only every two to four years, state and local officials consider and make decisions surrounding our ability to vote year-round. These constant threats to voting access and freedoms require immediate action.

Instead of letting state and local officials strip away—unchecked—our ability to vote, every day we rise in our power to be proactive, not reactive. Our work is nonpartisan and focuses on three areas to ensure that the right to vote belongs to us all: registration and voting, growing grassroots power, and vote count and certification.

National Security Leaders for America (NSL4A)

We are a 501(c)(4) bipartisan organization made up of individuals who served in a variety of senior leadership positions that include all six military branches, elected federal and state offices, and various government departments and agencies. We dedicate ourselves to supporting individuals of the highest integrity willing to serve in positions of government trust and to promoting public education about our democracy and the institutions upon which it depends.

NSL4A evolved from National Security Leaders for Biden (NSL4B), which stood up during the 2020 elections to enable its members to advocate for presidential nominee Joe Biden. This effort initially focused on its members’ providing their individual voices through op-eds in the summer of 2020. In September 2020, NSL4B leveraged the collective voice of 489 signatories in a letter of public support for Joe Biden, which organically grew to 780 public members prior to election day.

During the 2022 Midterm elections, NSL4A endorsed 31 candidates in both federal and state level elections. These candidates ran against opponents who espoused anti-democracy positions such as voter suppression and election denialism. Our efforts supported the reelection of two state Governors, three U.S. Representatives, and four U.S. Senators, along with the election of two new state Governors, one new U.S. Representative, and one new U.S. Senator.

Whether we’re authoring critical legislation on equal pay and workplace protections, fighting for abortion rights, or pushing for the nominations of critical federal judges, our federal advocacy and regulatory efforts are core to the National Women’s Law Center’s work. For almost 50 years, NWLC has been at the forefront of almost every legislative victory for women and girls, and we will continue to hold our elected officials accountable while pushing presidents and their administrations to ensure our government is removing barriers to equality.

Established in 1977, the National Women's Studies Association has as one of its primary objectives promoting and supporting the production and dissemination of knowledge about women and gender through teaching, learning, research and service in academic and other settings. Women’s studies has its roots in the student, civil rights, and women’s movements of the 1960s and 70s. Today the field’s interrogation of identity, power, and privilege go far beyond the category “woman." Drawing on the feminist scholarship of U.S. and Third World women of color, women’s studies has made the conceptual claims and theoretical practices of intersectionality, which examines how categories of identity (e.g., sexuality, race, class, gender, age, ability, etc.) and structures of inequality are mutually constituted and must continually be understood in relationship to one another.

VOTE411 is committed to ensuring voters have the information they need to successfully participate in every election. Whether it's local, state or federal, every election is important to ensuring our laws and policies reflect the values and beliefs of our communities.

Launched by the League of Women Voters Education Fund (LWVEF) in October of 2006, is a "one-stop-shop" for election related information. It provides nonpartisan information to the public with both general and state-specific information on the following aspects of the election process: absentee ballot information, ballot measure information (where applicable), early voting options (where applicable), election dates, factual data on candidates in various federal, state and local races, general information on such topics as how to watch debates with a critical eye, ID requirements, polling place locations, registration deadlines, voter qualifications, voter registration forms, and voting machines.


Started in 2006, VoteVets PAC and VoteVets Action Fund have been the home for progressive veterans, military families, and their civilian supporters for over 15 years. It is the first organization of its kind and the largest, with over one and a half million supporters in all 50 states. VoteVets uses public issue campaigns to relentlessly lift up the voices of veterans on matters of national security, veterans’ care, and everyday issues that affect the lives of those who served, and their families.

VoteVets Action Fund is a 501c(4) organization, whose primary purpose is to advocate for issues that impact troops, veterans, and their families. VoteVets Action Fund focuses on matters including, but not limited to, foreign policy (including war-making policy), veterans’ unemployment, robust investment in care for veterans, energy security, protecting the rights of those who serve, and upholding the Constitution and democracy that every military member swore to uphold and protect.

More often than not, Veterans have a stake in the top issues of the day, and VoteVets Action Fund is committed to getting their voices heard on these issues. For that reason, we have and will continue to work with all progressive allies representing labor, immigration, civil rights and voting rights, gay and lesbian rights, environmentalists, and other progressives, when their issues coincide with the needs of troops and veterans.
