Through this grant-making program, CEIR seeks to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of election administration by funding Secretaries of State to educate, inform, and communicate with voters. Our goal is to ensure a safe, secure, and informed November 2020 election, particularly in the face of the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
These funds are available to all states and may be used to support efforts to educate voters and communicate vital information about (but not limited to):
- Voter registration and deadlines
- Mail voting
- Early voting opportunities
- Polling place locations and hours
- Vote counting updates
