Can we have 80% of eligible voters in the US voting by 2024? With an electorate looking like the population by demographics? Those are the ambitious questions behind an emerging Democracy Moonshot, facilitated collaboratively by the Democracy Fund, Democracy Works, and Common Cause. The work touches on equity in elections modernization and voter engagement, the role of the social relationship in community, cultural approaches for engagement, the best use of technology to support evidence-based practices, and other cross-disciplinary approaches for a more inclusive and meaningful civic life.
