Help People Get Gov IDs - Essential for voting, housing, jobs, healthcare

Save to Favorites



Help someone clear a hurdle to a better life by helping them get a government ID for voting, housing, employment, healthcare, and more. This opportunity is for you if you are a good problem solver and like to help others in the community. Our Virginia chapter of VoteRiders, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, is looking for volunteers in several key areas. Most work is done remotely, but we also need drivers with cars to meet clients at the DMV (usually eastern Fairfax County, Alexandria City offices) and to pick up clients’ signed paperwork from our partner organizations.

Whether it’s managing a client case from contact to ID issuance or being an assistant in arranging Uber rides for clients, making document pickups, DMV payment and application completion and signature runs, we have a role for you.

Must be based in the United States and have basic computer skills (online form completion, updating our client case database). VoteRiders reimburses volunteers for mileage in the course of volunteering and all fees for documents needed for IDs, as well as the ID itself. Training calls, team member coaches and guidance documents provided. Reply to < >

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
