Civic Cities



Civic Cities provides city leaders with access to tools, programs, and organizations to increase voter participation and ensure safe and fair elections in their communities. Through Civic Cities, When We All Vote recruits and engages officials on voter engagement strategies that harness their governing power to educate, engage, and mobilize people to register and vote. 

Collectively, the hard work and commitment of mayors, city leaders, and partners contributed to a record setting number of more than 160 million Americans voting in the 2020 General Election. As we strengthen and build our relationships with cities, Civic Cities will provide new opportunities to engage and shift the culture around voting at the local level.

Why Join?

Civic Cities identifies and celebrates innovative engagement tactics, and shares promising practices among mayors nationally. Together, we can work to ensure safe and fair elections for every eligible voter, while also protecting the integrity, accessibility, and security of the election process.
