An estimated 102,731,399 eligible voters did not cast a ballot in the 2016 Presidential Election. As in most cases, there are many reasons as to why individuals may not participate in the voting process. However, studies estimate that over 21 million eligible voters lack a government-issued ID, meaning that many of these eligible voters likely did not participate because they did not have the ID they needed to do so, especially those living in states with strict voter ID laws.
Studies estimate that over 21 million eligible voters lack a government-issued ID. This is where Spread The Vote steps in. We want to increase voter participation in America because our democracy depends on it. We pay all fees and work with clients in 9 states to help them through every phase of the process required to obtain a government-issued ID.
