A new study documents the impact nonprofits have when they talk to their clients and constituents about voting. Professor Kelly LeRoux discussed her study that tracked the outcomes of nonprofit service providers that contacted their clients/constituents about voting. Conducted during the 2010 midterm election with assistance from Nonprofit VOTE and the Michigan Nonprofit Association, the study reveals that when nonprofits discuss voting with clients, their likelihood of both voting and talking to their families and friends about the election increased. Professor LeRoux, the principal researcher, shared her findings and discussed the implications for nonprofits and our role in increasing voter participation in 2012 and beyond.
