Join adult educators from across all six New England states who help adult learners exercise their voice and choice inside and outside of the classroom.
In the 2008 VERA campaign,
- 17,634 adult learners participated across the six states.
- 80% of adult learners eligible to vote voted.
- Over 40% registered to vote and voted for the first time.
- 8,300 adults participated even though they were not eligible to vote.
The Voter Education, Registration, and Action campaign of 2016 is a non-partisan effort aimed at adult learners and program staff in the New England states. Its goal is to educate adult learners about voting and the topical electoral issues, and mobilize them to vote in the 2016 elections. VERA is sponsored by the New England Literacy Resource Center (NELRC) at World Education.
