Coalition for Even-Year Elections

The Coalition is an alliance of voting justice organizations that support moving local elections in the Pacific Northwest and beyond to even-numbered years, when data shows voter turnout is much higher and more diverse. Experience has demonstrated that adopting even-year elections for localities does more for turnout than any other possible voting reform. It's also extremely popular with voters. Any organization that shares our principles is welcome to join us.
