Democracy Works (We make TurboVote)
Democracy Works is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. We believe that voting should fit the way we live today. To that end, we built turbovote.org–a site that helps track voters' election calendars and assists them in registering to vote, updating their voter registration information, and requesting absentee ballots. Through partnerships with colleges and non-profit organizations, we served nearly 200,000 voters in the 2012 presidential election.
Now we're expanding our mission to include serving local election offices as well. This winter, we'll be designing and building a simple tool to help election officials monitor absentee ballots as they travel through the mail, making it easier to plan for incoming ballots and follow up with voters when things go awry. And that's only the start.
