“Project Vote” is the name of a new organization that the President has deisgned in order to empower and encourage Americans to utilize their right to vote.
According to organizers, the project will “drive our campaign strategy — from paid media, to digital outreach, to grassroots organizing and voter registration efforts. This initiative will help us connect with voters, including those who have not voted at high rates in the past or have recently moved.”
The goal is to outreach to underserved communities, such as Hispanics, African-Americans, youth and elders, etc., that often may not understand or not have access to voter registration.
The GOP are criticizing Obama’s new project as a desperate ploy to re-establish Obama’s electoral base, which they believe is slowly losing ground with the president.
