As the 2024 primary election season winds down, we wanted to take some time to look back and reflect on the highlights and accomplishments of 2023.

Casting a ballot in every election requires voters to stay on top of the rules. In 2023 alone, there were more than 2,000 election-related bills introduced in state legislatures across the country. There were 73 new democracy-related lawsuits filed across 31 states, and 146 court orders that impacted voters in 34 states, all on top of redistricting which has affected every American since the 2020 Census.

This makes our work more urgent and important than ever as we help millions of Americans vote by providing reliable, useful voting guidance through the sites, apps and groups they trust. That's why we sent out more than 21 million election notifications providing detailed voting guidance in support of 3,389 elections last year.

Today, we are excited to share our 2023 Impact Report, and invite you to explore the team members, data, and stories that illustrate the impact of our collective efforts.

As we approach the 2024 general election, there is still plenty of work to be done. At Democracy Works, we have been building towards this election cycle for more than two years while still supporting more than 1,200 elections in the first half of this year. We are working diligently to fight mis- and disinformation by ensuring that trusted election information and voting guidance are available wherever voters are looking for it.

This vital work could not be accomplished without our supporters and partners. This report is a testament to the power of our collaboration to help America vote, no matter what.
