Voter Education Project
The Voter Education Project, or VEP, was established in Oregon in 2001. A National Public Radio reporter on June 2, 2002 described the goal of the organization as "trying to defeat initiatives before they even qualify for the ballot."
Labor leader and Oregon political activist Tim Nesbitt has been credited with conceiving of the idea for the Voter Education Project, and is listed as the organization's president on its federal income tax return for 2004.
The organization was listed as a 501(c)(3) non-profit.
