Fair Elections Center

Fair Elections Center is a national, nonpartisan, non-profit voting rights and election reform  organization based in Washington, D.C. Our mission is to use litigation and advocacy to remove barriers to registration and voting, particularly those disenfranchising underrepresented and marginalized communities, and to improve election administration.

The organization litigates cutting-edge voting rights cases in federal and state court and engages in a wide variety of advocacy efforts, including: drafting state election reform legislation and submitting testimony in support of positive reforms; advocating to defeat restrictive measures; producing reports on election modernization proposals and issues affecting communities of color, talking points, and fact sheets; providing state voter guides for all 50 states; conducting trainings and seminars on voting issues for community organizations and their supporters; and working directly with Secretaries of State and local election officials to ensure that the right to vote is protected and expanded. We provide election law expertise to state-based civic engagement coalitions and direct help to organizations representing various constituencies that need help accessing the ballot as they plan their programs, encounter problems, or need help engaging elections officials.
