Ensure Voting Access for Every American, Every Election.


Ensure Voting Access for Every American, Every Election.

The National Voter Protection Action Fund is a non-partisan 501(c)4 social welfare organization formed to combat voter suppression and support election protection efforts nationwide.  NVPAF is committed to protecting the franchise and voting rights by partnering with local organizations to fund work which increases ballot access, supports voter protection mobilization, and engages in anti-suppression advocacy efforts so that every American citizen can vote in every election without obstacle.

We are taking the necessary steps towards safeguarding our democracy, and ensuring that every American – regardless of political affiliation – is able to cast a vote that’s going to count!

13 states and the District of Columbia introduced bills in 2011 that would end highly popular Election Day and same-day voter registration, limit registration drivers, and/or reduce opportunities for voters to register.

What We Do

We partner with local organizations across the country who are doing crucial election protection and anti voter-suppression work. We fund their election protection field plans and help them advocate for and organize around anti-suppression policy. #igot5onvoterprotection

Call to Action

Our election retrospectives going back to 2000 have taught us that getting voters to the polls is not enough. The N.V.P. Action Fund keeps an eye out for active voter suppression efforts, and implements strategies to make sure all those turned-out voters are actually able to cast a ballot that gets counted.

If every American who cares about fair and open elections gives $5 to the cause, we can ensure that every citizen who wants to can cast a vote, even in jurisdictions where the worst suppression tactics are in place.  Your contribution will go directly toward funding nonpartisan local field plans for executions including financing for state IDs, funding rides to the polls, hiring election protection lawyers and poll watchers, and more.
