One of the most common ways nonprofits participate in elections is through non-partisan civic engagement campaigns. These groups are trying to communicate one simple message to their members, supporters, and followers: go vote!

Gun violence is sadly a huge issue in American politics, and there are numerous organizations mobilizing supporters and advocating for common-sense gun safety laws this year. In fact, several states are voting on ballot initiatives that would allow for expanded background checks on gun and ammunition sales.

This election cycle, organizations like NARAL and PPFA have worked tirelessly to bring the discussion of reproductive rights and abortion to the forefront of our political dialogue. Across the country, they’re also organizing their members to turn out on Election Day and vote for candidates who will support & trust women with their reproductive decisions.
