Jefferson Votes Initiative

Jefferson Votes is a nonpartisan initiative of the Jefferson Regional Foundation and the 100+ member strong, Jefferson Community Collaborative. This voter engagement initiative is designed and led by the Collaborative’s very own Civic and Policy Engagement Action Team and Voter Engagement Task Force.

The objective of the Jefferson Votes initiative is to inspire Jefferson area residents to participate in the election process, leveraging local organizations as trusted community resources to:


Strengthen Collaborative organizations in the Jefferson community to increase voter registration and participation.


The Jefferson community is confident, comfortable, and informed about the process of voting.


Regional interest and enthusiasm in civic engagement rises and continues.

Jefferson Votes offers a website of resources, training workshops, a robust toolkit of resources, and other learning opportunities. These trainings will be shared on our collaborative website as well as through the Collaborative newsletter and emails. Join fellow Collaborative organizations to get informed and consider one or many simple actions to become a Voter Engagement Champion.
