Voter education & outreach

Voter education and outreach increase the meaningful participation of all eligible voters

Active voter engagement is the bedrock of a healthy democracy. Well-informed voters are more civically and politically engaged, and more likely to vote and hold their representatives accountable through elections. IFES supports local partners to build voter knowledge, skills and democratic values that support peaceful and meaningful participation in elections. IFES targets its voter education and outreach programs through evidence-based approaches and focused messaging and delivery to increase participation of marginalized voters at the polls.
