About Ballot Z

Ballot Z aims to help Gen Z voters in Illinois have their voices heard. We send out email and text reminders with information about registration deadlines, absentee ballots, and upcoming elections - making voting as accessible as possible, especially if voters are away from home. We also are on social media - follow us to stay up-to-date with all election information! Ballot Z is a bipartisan organization;we believe that voting is a right that needs to be protected for all to ensure a working democracy. We are excited to work with anyone who shares this vision.

Ballot Z was created by Gretchen Coleman, a political science major in the Maxwell School at Syracuse University who is passionate about helping people vote!
