Giving to Democracy

Here is the list of charities for election reform in the United States we have compiled along with the corresponding website.  This is a good place to find organizations like Democracy Chronicles working in one of eight categories including Election Reform, Money in Elections, Transparency, Freedom and Civil Liberties, Election Method Reform, Democracy News, Activism and Election Reform in New York. For more information on the subject of election reform itself, see our Election Reform, Third Party, and Election Methods pages that are the gateway to accessing our coverage.

One of our favorite charities is the Center for Election Science whose fundraising charity can be found by clicking the their logo or visiting  center for election science bannerAlso, we recommend the website Reclaim Democracy who are working to create a better representative democracy with an actively participating public, where citizens don’t merely choose from a menu of options determined by elites, but play an active role in guiding the country and its political agenda.

Election reform blogs that we consider essential include Election Law Blog written by Rick Hasen and Ballot Access News by Richard Winger.  Also Common Cause and Move to Amend are major players behind election reform activism.

Please let us know if you have better links and information than we have or other organizations that should be on the list by commenting below.  We plan to expand and deepen our charity section in order to give our readers access to the world of activism:
