RELATED STORY: Partners for Democracy

TurboVote works to bring how we vote into the 21st century, helping Americans stay informed about upcoming elections and navigate the process of civic participation. The Rita Allen Foundation provided startup funding for TurboVote’s partnership with two of the largest leadership networks in higher education, the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) and the National Association of Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education (NASPA). In part because of this partnership, more than 200 colleges and universities across the country have adopted TurboVote as a “one-stop” civic participation platform for students. In 2014, TurboVote passed a milestone with over a quarter of a million voters served.
