Northeast Ohio Voter Advocates

Donate to NOVA Volunteer with NOVA Sign up for the NOVA newsletter


Our Volunteer Sign-Up Calendar is available to trained volunteers in advance of each election cycle.  We will post dates for future training sessions closer to elections.


  • Voter Registration: Receive training to proactively register voters in a non-partisan manner. This is our number one volunteer priority.
  • Voter Outreach: Thank those we have previously registered. Ask if they have received confirmation from the Board of Elections for their registration and remind them of details regarding upcoming elections.
  • Research: Use NOVA registration data and Board of Elections information for research and advocacy purposes to highlight voting issues that need to be addressed.
  • We are always looking for volunteers, (particularly with data processing or technical support) if you are interested in volunteering, please contact us


Choose Your Volunteer Style

There are lots of ways to contribute to NOVA. I help prepare sacks of materials our volunteers use when they register voters. We do a great job -- together -- and have a good time!


Great Training & Support

NOVA’s voter registration training gave me everything I needed to successfully add eight people at a food pantry to the voter rolls. NOVA’s online volunteer calendar makes it easy for me to continue to sign up for dates and sites that suit my schedule.

Collective Action That Counts

I like meeting other volunteers who share my passion for public service. Our voter registration plus follow-up phone calls and emails to those we’ve registered make the difference. All of this really helps voter turnout.

Ensuring All Voices Are Heard

I appreciated the call from NOVA reminding me to get to my polling site. I voted for the first time and my voice was heard!

Using Data to Fix Injustices

When Ohio wanted to cut some of its early voting days, NOVA’s research and testimony resulted in government officials making the decision to keep one weekend of voting for 97,000 Ohio voters.

Deeply Satisfying Work

I’m glad one of my friends told me about NOVA. To me, it’s a fulfilling experience when I register voters at a social service agency downtown or in Cleveland’s high schools. I also enjoy volunteering at food pantries in Glenville, Lee-Harvard, and Euclid.
