Voter turnout is affected by many barriers, one of which is mobility. In 2016, there were an estimated 15 million registered voters who did not vote due to a lack of transportation. In our work, we emphasize the local, cultural uniqueness within a community so that we mobilize voters via inclusive networks of friends and neighbors rather than as remote, centralized messages. By partnering with community organizations, we're developing a tool that will get registered voters to the polls by providing transportation and community support.
