Today, we’re announcing $1 million in new support for Democracy Works, to expand the TurboVote platform and support the launch of Ballot Scout, a tool for local elections officials and voters that uses Postal Service barcode technology to track absentee ballots.
We’re particularly excited to be joined by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, which is announcing $400,000 in support for Democracy Works.
The grant to Democracy Works--the third we’ve made since 2011--is part of our strategy to take advantage of new digital tools to improve the ways in which Americans relate to their government and to one another.
