This guide is primarily for nonprofit organizations organized as 501(c)(3) charities. It
is not intended for private foundations or for non-charitable entities. The term “nonprofit”
in this guide refers to 501(c)(3) nonprofits. The guide is meant to be used by 501(c)(3)s
interested in encouraging voting and voter participation among their staff, board, clients,
constituents and communities.
This guide is not a guide about lobbying. It is about voting and elections.
