#QTHEVOTE Voting Tools

#QTHEVOTE was formed to help our community register to vote. Minority voting rights are under attack by hostile forces nationwide through coordinated suppression efforts—but we are fighting back by making it easier for LGBTQIA+ Americans to register to vote.

Using technology from the non-partisan VOTE.org, QtheVote.com is now a platform for LGBTQIA+ voter registration. You can register to vote online in as little as two minutes.


November 3, 2020 is Election Day - and it's fast approaching. Be prepared.

#QTHEVOTE was founded by Trevor Burgess, one of the first openly gay CEOs of a NYSE-listed company, and his husband, Gary Hess. Trevor and Gary, along with Jim Steiner and Jonathan Carlon have provided the initial funding for #QTHEVOTE in hopes of making a difference in 2020.
