Help Manatee County voters get ID!

Save to Favorites


Your neighbors need state ID -- and they need it now. The pandemic has made it harder than ever for individuals to navigate the bureaucracy on their own...and it's added new categories of essential activities that are impossible to do without an ID. That's why we need volunteers more than ever!

Important elections are always around the corner -- which is why VoteRiders is a year-round organization. Nationwide, VoteRiders provides voter ID education and assistance to anyone in need. Here in Manatee County, VoteRiders Tampa Bay helps eligible voters get the ID they need to cast their ballots in person -- one voter at a time. And since ID is necessary for housing, for employment, and for so many other aspects of life, you're making a difference for members of our community well beyond Election Day.

Our local volunteers do the following:

1) Help clients get their state ID or driver's license at the tax collector's office. This is an in-person opportunity at any one of the Manatee County Tax Collectors' offices. You can pick the location, date and time. We only ask that you pick a date/time such as the 1st Monday of each month between 1 and 3 pm, etc. You will be meeting clients, helping them through the process, and using our debit card to cover the costs.

2) Work with clients to obtain the documents they need to get ready for their appointment. This can often be done virtually but may require occasional in-person contact.

Full training is provided, and all expenses are either prepaid or promptly reimbursed.

Contact us with any questions!

Mission Statement

VoteRiders is a non-partisan non-profit organization whose mission is to ensure that all citizens are able to exercise their right to vote. VoteRiders informs and helps citizens to secure their state-issued ID or driver license, as well as underlying documents, such as a birth certificate and social security card. VoteRiders collaborates with other organizations in the community that are providing services to people and who may need ID to access those services, such as healthcare, housing, employment and more.


VoteRiders was founded in 2012 after a number of states began enacting strict voter ID laws and there were no organizations providing voter ID assistance. VoteRiders built a robust website with information for all 50 states and DC, including details on what ID is required to vote both in-person and absentee. We have a toll-free number accessible via telephone, SMS, or chatbot on our website, staffed by trained volunteers who are experts on voter ID. These volunteers will help all voters determine if they have the correct ID to vote in their state, and if not, to provide assistance in securing an ID.

We help voters who need to obtain ID to vote in their state with services including:
* covering the cost of required documents (birth certificates, Social Security cards, name-change court orders, etc.) for low-income voters
* arranging transportation to their local DMV or SSA offices to secure their voter ID
* pro bono legal assistance with documentation; and * information about voter ID requirements, via our toll-free Voter ID Hotline (844-338-8743), online and in-person with on-the-ground teams
