Tech for Civic Engagement

Here to Serve All Your Voter Engagement Needs

 
In 1999, Rock the Vote built the first-ever online voter registration tool to make it simpler for young people to vote. Ever since, our tech team has worked to develop cutting edge civic engagement tools. Rock the Vote’s fully customizable and rigorously tested technology helps to register, educate and mobilize voters.

 

Rock the Vote currently offers an Online Voter Registration Platform as well as Pledge to Vote, Voter Registration Status Lookup and Absentee Ballot Request tools for partner use. Learn more about our offerings below. Questions on getting started? Visit our Partner FAQ.

Online Voter Registration Platform

Rock the Vote’s Online Voter Registration platform makes it as easy as possible for young people to register to vote. Our team has spent over 20 years testing and innovating our voter registration product which has notably processed over 14 million voter registration applications to-date.

The platform is mobile-friendly, available in 13 languages, is fully customizable, and provides our partners with detailed data reporting.

Voter Registration Status Lookup

Rock the Vote gives voters from all states a one-stop location to check on their voter registration status. Voters enter their information and the tool checks against up-to-date third party information to see if the user is active on the voter rolls with their current address. If a likely match is found, the tool displays the record’s information for the user to review and confirm. If a voter record is not found, or if users need to update their address, users are directed to register to vote using Rock the Vote’s Online Voter Registration Platform.

Fill out this form to receive the basic embed code for our Voter Status Lookup and other tools.

If you’d like to sign up for your own tool complete with robust data reporting and customization options, email our team at civictech@rockthevote.org.

Pledge to Vote

Rock the Vote’s Pledge to Vote (Election Reminders Sign-Up) tool enables users to pledge to vote – which is a proven tactic to increase the likelihood they will vote. Users enter their contact information and select whether or not they’d like to subscribe to SMS in addition to email.

Users are enrolled into Rock the Vote’s Election Reminders Program which provides timely, localized election information via email, SMS, or both. These reminders include step-by-step guidance for all steps of the voting journey in clear, easy to understand language. The information is thoroughly fact-checked and comprehensive, covering relevant dates and deadlines for all federal and state elections as well as local elections in large cities.

If you’d like to sign up for your own Pledge to Vote tool complete with robust data reporting and customization options such as the ability to include survey questions, email our team at civictech@rockthevote.org.

Absentee Ballot Request Tool

The Absentee Ballot Request tool identifies the most streamlined way for each voter to request their absentee ballot and guides them through that process. If applicable, voters can select the election they’d like to request a ballot for and can repeat the process as many times as necessary to generate a request for each election.

In designing the interface, Rock the Vote has been extremely careful to prevent forms from being denied by election officials.

The interface functions the same way as the Online Voter Registration tool. Users begin by entering their name, email address, and zip code, just like when registering to vote. Depending on the zip code the user provides, they will go through the corresponding state flow to request an absentee ballot.
