Many states put laws and constitutional amendments on the ballot, asking voters to make critical public policy decisions at the polls. Often, the outcome directly affects nonprofit organizations and our communities, so we have a vested interest in the results. Although nonprofits cannot endorse or oppose a candidate, they can take a stand on ballot measures, as it is considered lobbying rather than electioneering. Learn how your nonprofit can benefit from engaging the public around ballot measures, as well as how to advance your advocacy efforts through ballot measure activity.
