Online Voter Registration Tool

Rock the Vote’s Online Voter Registration (OVR) platform provides a simple solution for modern voter registration. Since its inception, the platform has registered over seven million voters and has been a trusted resource for more than a decade, with a proven track record of accessibility, security, and partner support.

The platform is mobile-friendly and available in 13 languages.* Most importantly, it’s available to partners for free!

Rock the Vote’s OVR platform offers partners customization options, all of which include access to a unique partner dashboard, access to nonsensitive registrant data, opt-ins, customizable survey questions, and tracking options.

Custom Interface

An application programming interface (API) is available for developers to build a custom solution for voter registration. This will allow partners that are interested in additional functionality, a modified user flow, or a mobile app to build upon Rock the Vote’s existing resources. Read the documentation here and contact us to gain access.

Featured partner: VotoLatino uses Rock the Vote’s API as the backend infrastructure for its innovative voter registration app VoterPal.
