Young volunteers outside of a polling location

Prepared to Vote - Past Campaigns

The Prepared to Vote initiative began in 2008. Check out some of the past issues we’ve addressed.


In 2015, we worked to protect the right to vote in Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, and Texas. Specifically, we worked to combat confusing photo ID laws, as well as ensured voters knew where their polling locations were.


In 2014, we worked specifically on midterm elections where new photo ID laws were implemented, worked to ensure polling locations were enacted fairly, and worked on elections that were contested along racial lines. After the 2014 elections. LDF and the Center for American Progress co-authored a report, “Examining the Impact of Voter Suppression on the 2014 Midterm Elections”.


In 2013, we protected the right to vote in South Carolina and Texas, where strict voter ID laws had become recently enforceable.


In 2012, our campaign distributed 500,000 pieces of voter information cards for our door-to-door canvassing efforts. We protected the right to vote in Florida, Georgia, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Texas.

New year. Same fight. Join us.
