If everyone who worked or volunteered in human services voted, we’d have better human services funding. If everyone who worked or volunteered on the environment voted, we’d have a better environment. If everyone who worked or volunteered in __________ voted, we’d have better ___________. So vote with your mission!

California nonprofits know about our Vote with Your Mission campaign that works to mobilize California’s 937,000 nonprofit staff and 7 million volunteers as voters. But you might not know that United Way Worldwide, Independent Sector, Nonprofit Vote and the National Council of Nonprofits formed a collaboration this year to replicate VWYM nationally — under the name Nonprofit Votes Count.

Here’s the button we created two years ago and this year's button from Nonprofit Votes Count. Thanks, Nonprofit Votes Count, for taking this campaign national!

September 22 is National Voter Registration Day -- a great time to check your voter registration status and ask your co-workers if they are registered. That’s all it takes to participate in the Vote with Your Mission campaign. If you would like to print “I work for a nonprofit and I vote” and “I volunteer at a nonprofit and I vote” stickers go here for a template.
