Health Centers are an effective place to engage voters because they are non-profit organizations that are trusted in the community, they have social missions, they are visited daily by individuals who are often underrepresented in the democratic process, and they receive bipartisan support at both the state and federal level.

Community Health Vote provides voter engagement resources for Health Centers. It is an initiative of the National Association of Community Health Centers, Nonprofit VOTE, and Fair Elections Legal Network, that supports Health Centers in establishing non-partisan voter registration as one of the services they provide to their patients and communities on an ongoing basis. By making voter registration readily accessible and convenient for patients and other community members, Health Centers can offer a pathway for individuals to become more informed and civically engage.
