Our Story

Since 2018, we have led the largest expansion of Vote by Mail in New Jersey. We have reached nearly 615,000 voters converting tens of thousands into voting safely from home in every county.

Why? We want to create voting as a habit.

We are driven by values of

  • Collaboration
  • Sharing
  • Kindness

It is building our community while learning and engaging with others.
