Mr. Michael Slater

Term:

Since June 2008

Profile:

Michael Slater came to Project Vote in 2004 with more than a decade’s experience in community, labor and faith-based organizing. As Deputy Director, Mr. Slater helped build Project Vote's Election Administration program, and led successful efforts to overturn restrictive voter registration laws in seven states, including the landmark Project Vote v. Blackwell case. Mr. Slater was promoted to Executive Director in 2008, and in the months leading up to the historic 2008 election supervised one of the largest and most successful voter registration efforts in the nation’s history. In the past two years Mr. Slater has overseen the dramatic growth of Project Vote’s Election Administration, Litigation, and Research programs, transforming the organization into one of the nation’s leading voting rights and advocacy organizations. Under his guidance, the Public Agency Voter Registration Project has taken a nationwide leadership role in enforcing the National Voter Registration Act, including major litigation victories in Ohio and Missouri to ensure those states are registering their low-income public assistance clients. Through the expanded Research Department, Mr. Slater has conceived and overseen the writing and release of dozens of policy papers and reports, including Representational Bias in the 2008 Electorate and The NVRA at Fifteen: A Report to Congress. Mr. Slater has contributed to the passage of positive election legislation in several states, authored or edited numerous articles and publications on election policy, and is frequently called upon to testify on election issues. He splits his time between Washington, D.C. and his home in Salem, Oregon.

Program Description:

Increasing Voter Registration Among Low-Income Citizens   Congress passed the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) in 1993 to increase the number of citizens registered to vote in Federal elections. It is often referred to as the “motor voter” law because it requires states to offer voter registration with driver’s license application and renewal.   An equally important but less well-known provision of the NVRA is the requirement that states offer voter registration opportunities to clients and applicants of public assistance programs. Programs covered by the NVRA include Food Stamps, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), and Medicaid. Public assistance offices are in a unique position to increase voter registration among low-income citizens, furthering the intent of the NVRA to increase voter registration among populations underrepresented on the voter rolls.   Today, only a handful of states are consistently complying with the requirement to offer voter registration services to clients and applicants of public assistance programs. In fact, voter registration applications collected by public assistance agencies has declined by 79 percent between 1995-1996 and 2005-2006. The Public Agency Voter Registration Project was created to address this problem.   The Project is a joint effort by Project Vote, a leading nonpartisan, nonprofit provider of voter engagement services, the Lawyer's Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, and Demos, a national voting rights and election reform policy organization. The Project assists states, social service agencies, and election officials with implementation of public agency registration. In addition to technical assistance, the Project documents noncompliance and, when necessary, initiates litigation to enforce the NVRA.

Program Long-Term Success:

When all 44 states required to implement the voter registration mandates of the NVRA are in full compliance, Project Vote estimates that two million low-income citizens across the country will register to vote each year.

Program Short-Term Success:

As more states move into full compliance with the voter registration mandates of the NVRA, short-term success will mean tens of thousands more low-income citizens are registered and ready to vote in the 2012 elections.

Program Success Monitored by:

Program success is monitored by Project Vote's internal Research Department, which reviews incoming data from state agencies working within existing compliance agreements. Past success shows that approximately 10-20 percent of clients visiting public assistance agencies will complete a voter registration application if asked.

Program Success Examples:

Examples of past success of the Public Agency Voter Registration Project include Missouri and Ohio, where public assistance agencies in each state now collect more than 10,000 voter registration applications every month. Project Vote and our Project partners recently achieved similar compliance agreements in Indiana and New Mexico. Both states are expected to help thousands of low-income citizens register to vote each month.

Program Description:

Protecting and Expanding Voting Rights in America   Project Vote’s Election Administration Program works for long-term changes in laws, rules, and procedures that can realistically improve the way states and counties register voters, maintain voter lists, and administer elections.   Project Vote’s staff includes legal, research, advocacy, and communications professionals with years of experience in voting rights and election administration. The strategies these professionals employ to achieve the Election Administration goals stem from years of hands-on experience working directly with underrepresented constituencies and state and local partners engaged in voter registration and election protection efforts.   Project Vote's Election Administration Program will employ the following strategies through the 2011-2012 election cycle, and beyond: Litigation and Legal Advocacy: Project Vote’s team of staff attorneys is supported by expert research and local advocates, working to bring lawsuits to enforce the National Voter Registration Act, the Voting Rights Act, the Help America Vote Act, the U.S. Constitution, and relevant state election laws, often in partnership with leading litigation law firms and other national and local voting rights organizations. Research, Analysis, and Tools for Advocacy: Project Vote provides policy makers, community organizers, journalists, and the general public with reliable data and analysis that inform efforts to improve civic participation and catalyze real change. Communications and Media Relations: Project Vote serves as an early warning system to alert partners and the public to existing or potential problems, helping to frame the debates, build public pressure to implement solutions, and get accurate, timely information to the media to help expose and overcome voter suppression tactics. Education: Project Vote tracks election legislation and sends weekly email updates to advocates, allies, journalists, and interested parties. Other activities include providing expert testimony, position papers, legislative analysis, and public education to local and national coalitions responding to issues that arise. Much of this work will be completed in partnership with local, state, and national organizations that share our commitment to fair elections that are accessible to all voting-eligible citizens.

Program Long-Term Success:

Long-term success of the Election Administration Program will see all voting-eligible citizens able to register to vote, vote, and cast a ballot that counts without undue complications or unnecessary barriers.

Program Short-Term Success:

Short-term success of the Election Administration Program means stopping voter suppression and intimidation efforts; working with local law enforcement and election officials to ensure that the 2012 elections are administered fairly and safely for all voting-eligible citizens; working with national, state, and local allies to improve voter registration and election legislation; and publishing research that increases public awareness of issues in election administration and voter registration.

Program Success Monitored by:

Success of the Election Administration Program is determined through careful monitoring of voter registration and participation rates in historically underrepresented communities, by analyzing the impact of various voter registration and election laws, and by studying the reception of our research and other efforts to share information relating to voter registration and participation.

Program Success Examples:

Leading 2012 efforts in Michigan to oppose voter suppression bills, which resulted in the Governor’s veto. Leading 2012 opposition to Ohio’s reduction in the number and length of early voting days. Developing a network of voting rights and civil rights leaders who can serve as spokespeople to defend voter registration drives and bring restrictive voting laws to the center of 2012 pre-election media coverage. Filing suit in Texas to stop enforcement of new laws that severely restrict voter registration drives. Winning countless voting rights reports and editorials from major media outlets. Playing a leadership role in 2010 Election Day poll monitoring activities in Cleveland, Ohio, St. Louis, Missouri, and Richmond, Virginia. Surveying the 2008 electorate and publishing a 2010 report, "What Happened to Hope and Change? A Poll of 2008 Voters," detailing the values and beliefs of the Rising American Electorate. In 2008, beating back the suppression of new citizen voters in New Mexico, reinstating voters in Indiana who were illegally removed from the voter rolls, and pursuing other actions to protect the rights of eligible voters in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and elsewhere.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

Project Vote and its field partners collected more than 1.3 million voter registration applications throughout the 2007-2008 election cycle. This work helped more low-income African American citizens register to vote than any other third party organization that year. Going forward, the organization's voter registration efforts will be conducted by Voting for America, Project Vote's new voter registration subsidiary. Project Vote will continue its Public Agency Voter Registration Project and its Election Administration Program.   The Public Agency Voter Registration Project works to increase low-income voter registration rates by increasing state compliance with the National Voter Registration Act. When all Project goals are met, millions more low-income citizens will apply to become registered voters each year.   Project Vote's Election Administration Program works to protect and expand American voting rights. Program staff work through advocacy, research, communications, and litigation to improve registration and voting systems at the local, state, and national levels.   Together, this work seeks to expand the American electorate and ensure that all voting-eligible citizens can freely and easily take part in America's democratic systems.
