August is Civic Health Month

Vot-ER is a nonpartisan organization who believes in a truly democratic process and aspire towards an American democracy that is inclusive to all. Vot-ER does not support or oppose any political party or candidate for office. Rather, we hope that everyone takes it upon themselves to be politically engaged and informed so that they can vote for those that best represent their interests. Vot-ER integrates voter registration into the health care delivery system.
