WHY WE INVESTED
Tennessee’s elections face many challenges, including inefficient and outdated processes, low levels of civic participation, and declining trust. Tennessee ranks 40th in voter registration and 50th in voter turnout nationally.
To address these challenges, ThinkTennessee will conduct policy research and analysis around election modernization, raise the public’s and government officials’ awareness through strategic outreach, and build a coalition of diverse partners with representation from business, agriculture, and veterans.
DemocracyFund is proud to support ThinkTennessee as it develops, and advocates for, systemic evidence-based modernization policy solutions that receive public and bipartisan support.
