Project Vote (or Voting for America, Inc.) is a nonpartisan, nonprofit, 501 organization. It was founded in 1982 by Sandy Newman and its current executive director is Michael Slater, who has worked for Project Vote since 2004. Project Vote's efforts to engage low income and minority voters in the civic process include the provision of training, management, evaluation and technical services.

One of Project Vote's most successful voter registration drives was directed by Barack Obama in Chicagomarker during 1992. According to Chicago Magazine, "More than 150,000 new African-American voters were added to the city's rolls" during this drive.

Since 1994, Project Vote has often coordinated voter registration campaigns with local chapters of ACORN. It has also worked with organizations such as Demos, National Voting Rights Institute, Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Lawmarker, and the Fair Elections Legal Network regarding election administration policy and voting rights, including enforcement of the National Voter Registration Act through research, litigation and technical assistance.

In 2008, Project Vote's executive director, Michael Slater, said allegations of voter fraud against ACORN are "absolutely false". In most states, groups such as ACORN are legally required to submit all registration forms they collect. ACORN flags suspicious forms. Slater estimated that about 1% of voter registration applications collected by ACORN in drives could contain fictitious information.
