Voting Rights and Election Laws Header Image

The right to vote has been one of the most important and revered rights within the United States Constitution.  The ability to exercise this right has sometimes been contentious and hard-fought along gender and racial lines. Many individuals and organizations work year-round to ensure that as many Americans as possible have equal access to the polls.

With the pandemic and a surmounting number of social issues coming to the forefront of public consciousness, the 2020 election is proving to be pivotal in our nation’s history. As a result, the issues of election laws, voting rights, voter registration and suppression, and reform, have been at the forefront of discussions, debates, and protests.  Charity Navigator encourages citizens to do their research, become informed about how to register and their registration eligibility, have clarity about voting procedures, and utilize information provided by their state's board of elections.

For donors looking to ensure that voters have access to free, fair, and secure voting, Charity Navigator’s expert analysts have identified the nonprofits featured on this page.
