Voter Registration

National Health Center Week and Vot-ER

We are partnering with Vot-ER, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, to build civic engagement capacity within the health center movement. For too many Americans, registering to vote is an obstacle course and our nation’s community health centers can make it one step easier for patients’ voices to be heard.
