Motivote makes voting a habit

As first-time voters, students tend to vote at lower rates because they get busy, miss deadlines, or feel confused.

With Motivote, students quickly gain information for upcoming elections, opt-in for text or email reminders, and encourage each other on teams. Plus, rewards motivate them to keep going. 

With up-to-date voting information for all 50 states, make sure students have the details they need — when they need it. No matter if they’re voting on campus or back home.

By guiding through the steps of voting when they’re first eligible, Motivote breaks down barriers to help make voting a lifelong habit.

Half of registered voters face “micro-barriers” preventing them from casting a ballot — like getting busy, missing deadlines, feeling confused, or just forgetting. With research-proven behavioral actions, Motivote’s plan-making tools increase voter turnout.

Meet students where they are

Motivote’s team-based competition model is a great fit for student communities.
That’s because it layers on top of any existing social networks or affinity groups — like sports teams, academic programs, and clubs.

It also combines friendly competition with every college students favorite — free stuff. Students earn prizes from mission-driven brands and on-campus favorites.
