The National Campaign for Fair Elections is an Initiative of the Voting Rights Project of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law.[1]

According to Campaign Director for the National Campaign for Fair Elections Jonah H. Goldman:[1]

The goal of the National Campaign is to foster a national movement committed to ensuring that all voters have an equal opportunity to cast a meaningful ballot. To that end, NCFFE leads Election Protection - the nation’s largest nonpartisan voter protection coalition including the Lawyers’ Committee, the National Bar Association, the NAACP, and the People for the American Way Foundation. Through our hotline and a dedicated army of volunteers we help tens of thousands of voters access the polls and overcome the obstacles to the ballot box.

In addition to our leadership in the Election Protection Coalition, NCFFE advocates for progressive election reforms at the state and local level, litigates where voting rights are violated and brings communities together to educate and mobilize citizens about fair elections. Our strategy is based on the premise that we cannot wait until Election Day to respond to the myriad problems voters face when participating in our democracy.[2]
