Privacy Policy

  • We are a non-partisan nonprofit organization.
  • We don’t sell your data.
  • We do opt-in people who give us their emails into our newsletter updates and into Civic Health Month updates.
  • If you provide your phone number in your Healthy Democracy Kit sign up form or video form, we do sometimes text you to nudge you to use your kit or to vote in an upcoming election.
  • We do collaborate with local civic engagement organizations and partners in the health space, and it is possible you will get added to their mailing list if you sign up for a webinar or event that we jointly host with them.
  • We do use data for research purposes as we are affiliated with Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School.
  • We do build community among VotER users in the same hospitals and locations, and we sometimes provide local organizers or administrators who are involved in Vot-ER with information about other customers in their communities. If you do not want this information shared, please list “Other” as your organization when you sign up.
  • Vot-ER staff are able to see how many people that specific Healthy Democracy Kit users for the new individualized kit are able to engage. Vot-ER staff do use this information to identify our most engaged healthcare providers to help advance our work and voter registration. Vot-ER staff do not share this information with other healthcare providers or administrators. If a group of healthcare providers forms a team within Vot-ER’s system, they are consenting that the team can see each others performance.
  • Our partners TurboVote, Vote.Org, and Register2Vote each have comprehensive privacy policies that lay out the privacy provisions for those using their services for voter registration and vote-by-mail requests. 
  • Vot-ER does use the information provided through voter registration, vote at home, and other systems to remind individuals about upcoming elections and other opportunities for civic engagement.
