Latest News for Nonprofits

Nonprofits can support or oppose ballot measures or provide neutral information on both sides of the issue as a nonpartisan voter education activity. Either way, ballot measures--as well as amendments and referendums--provide yet another nonpartisan opportunity to engage your audience, collaborate with partners, and build relationships--all while advancing your mission and goals.

Taking a Stand: Ballot Measure Advocacy for Nonprofits

Many states put laws and constitutional amendments on the ballot, asking voters to make critical public policy decisions at the polls. Often, the outcome directly affects nonprofit organizations and our communities, so we have a vested interest in the results. Although nonprofits cannot endorse or oppose a candidate, they can take a stand on ballot measures, as it is considered lobbying rather than electioneering. Learn how your nonprofit can benefit from engaging the public around ballot measures, as well as how to advance your advocacy efforts through ballot measure activity.
