(Hartford, CT) – CT Community Nonprofit Alliance, which represents hundreds of nonprofit human service and cultural organizations across the state, has joined with the Secretary of the State’s office to register voters through a unique online link specifically for nonprofits, the Alliance announced today.
The voter registration link is part of the Alliance’s “Nonprofit Votes Count” campaign to increase voter participation in the upcoming primary and general election.
“The stakes are high for community nonprofits this year, with offices at every level of state government on the ballot,” Gian Carl Casa, Alliance President & CEO, said. “State officials will shape policy and set budgets that fund nonprofits, and we are encouraging our members, their staff and the thousands of people they serve, to exercise their right to vote.”
The Alliance campaign includes voter registration events around the state in the coming weeks, where participants will use the unique link, which will make it possible to track how many people register to vote.
“We are working with members to register as many nonprofit supporters as possible to vote this election season,” Casa added. “Connecticut is facing some daunting fiscal problems in the coming year and it is more important than ever that community nonprofits be part of the solution and the best way to do that is through the ballot box.”
