Voter turnout gaps along the lines of race, age, income, and education level distort democracy and the policy debates that flow from it. A recent report by Nonprofit VOTE entitled Nonprofit Power: Engaging Voters for a More Inclusive Democracy shows how nonprofit service providers are uniquely well-positioned to foster a more inclusive democracy. It examines how nonprofits like food pantries, health centers, housing clinics, and family service agencies reach demographic groups underrepresented at the polls and how nonpartisan voter engagement conducted by these nonprofits has its biggest turnout impact among these target groups, contributing to a more representative electorate.
