Bounty Program

Chartered Organization Voter Registration Program

The Chartered Organization Voter Registration (Bounty) Program is a way to help solidify our Democratic majority statewide and push our registration advantage to traditionally "Red" areas. Chartered organizations and County Central Committees can sign up to participate in the Bounty Program, where they will be rewarded for each Democratic registration they collect. All the materials for the Bounty Program are available below.
