Voter Contact Magazine
has launched an online magazine called Voter Contact
Magazine. Voter Contact Magazine is an online publication designed for people and groups, especially
nonprofit/ nonpartisan groups, that plan, organize, manage and fund civic engagement campaigns.
Our purpose is to provide our readers with a broad range of information, news, resources and research that will magnify the effectiveness and productivity of voter contact campaigns.
The Missing Voter Project
The United States now has on average the lowest voter turnout in the world among mature democracies. With an average turnout rate of 48% between 1945 and 1998, the participation rate of the United States ranks it 139th in the universe of democratic nations. It has often been said that the party most Americans belong to is the party of non-voters. Certainly eligible non-voters, especially in local elections and off-year congressional elections, outnumber partisan voters of each party by a substantial margin. A nation of non-voters seriously undermines the authenticity of our claim to be a nation “of the people, by the people and for the people.”
Democracy South has initiated the first phase in solving the epidemic of
non-voting - A non-partisan Voter Registration program. [more]

GOTV campaigns, Democracy South provides “turf” mapping services
