Who We Are

We are a non-partisan voter empowerment organization with 501(c)(3) tax exempt status. Our mission is to significantly increase voter participation and turnout, especially among historically low-propensity voters, and to ensure that candidates and elected officials (national, state, and local) advocate and promote justice, equity, and equal opportunity in American life. We seek to empower voters by removing barriers to voting and bringing low-propensity voters into the political process.

We utilize our trained, non-partisan volunteer network of over 2,500 volunteers to facilitate and promote all aspects of voter empowerment, including registration, education, engagement, motivation, and mobilization.

Student Voter Empowerment Coalition

The Student Voter Empowerment Coalition, SVEC, establishes and sponsors non-partisan dynamic student-led civic engagement clubs in high schools, open to grades 9-12. SVEC clubs fill the gap left by a lack of civics education in school curricula, increase student voter turnout, and cultivate a lifelong commitment to voting and civic engagement.

With clubs in Dallas and Tarrant counties, some of the student-led activities include: candidate forums, town halls, voter registration drives, meetings with elected officials, voting-themed contests, and field trips to legislative & governmental meetings.

Latino Voter Empowerment Coalition

The Latino Voter Empowerment Coalition, LVEC, engages in outreach to low propensity voting Latino communities through family neighborhood events. The events are focused on education & voter registration with attendance by the community's elected leaders, giving constituents the opportunity to engage directly with representatives on issues important to the community. LVEC also works to address negative beliefs and barriers that impede Latinos from voting.

Voter Engagement Programs

Our Voter Engagement Programs, VEP, principally engages constituents from across North Central Texas through voter registration & education events. MTTP has worked to deputize Volunteer Deputy Registrars (VDR's), hosted in-class high school voter registration with 6+ independent school districts, and partnered with constituents to mobilize voters to head to the polls.

To date, the voter engagement efforts have resulted in: 40,000+ registered voters, 18,000+ registered students, 2,500 trained volunteers, and 6+ independent school district partners.

Voter Freedom and Protection

Via our Voting Freedom and Protection work, March to the Polls works with constituents across the community to support voters' access to the ballot and to stay up to date with all rules & regulations pertaining to voting.

We strive to empower
historically underrepresented
people to make a difference
through voting
