Any voter information collected will be used for strictly research and nonpartisan voter education purposes in partnership with Nonprofit VOTE. This data will never be sold and may only be shared with nonprofit partner agencies in an aggregated and anonymized format that makes it impossible to identify personal information. Nonprofit VOTE may send out a single text/email reminder that includes information on where and how to vote. These reminders are limited to one per election cycle. Existing public records will be matched with data collected to measure the overall impact of voter registration and engagement by nonprofits.
