Motivote is on a mission to increase civic engagement and build a more representative government by helping purpose-driven organizations mobilize their networks to vote.

Our Story

One of us had only voted once every 4 years. One of us managed 100s of campaign canvassers. We met in graduate school, and both became obsessed with a key question: Why were so many of our politically-conscious, caring peers, voting so inconsistently?

Our journey began as a year-long capstone project focused on the psychology of voting and gaps in the ecosystem. It became clear that behavioral nudges and social accountability could be transformative for turnout, and Motivote was born.
