One of our favorite charities is the Center for Election Science whose fundraising charity can be found by clicking the their logo or visiting Also, we recommend the website Reclaim Democracy who are working to create a better representative democracy with an actively participating public, where citizens don’t merely choose from a menu of options determined by elites, but play an active role in guiding the country and its political agenda.

Election reform blogs that we consider essential include Election Law Blog written by Rick Hasen and Ballot Access News by Richard Winger.  Also Common Cause and Move to Amend are major players behind election reform activism.

Please let us know if you have better links and information than we have or other organizations that should be on the list by commenting below.  We plan to expand and deepen our charity section in order to give our readers access to the world of activism:
