Our mission is to empower all eligible US citizens to become voters. That starts with voter registration.
Across the United States, tens of millions of Americans are unregistered or incorrectly registered to vote. Register2Vote aims to make it easy for anyone to confirm their registration and get registered. We started our work in Texas in 2018, where we were able to register over 150,000 people in 6 weeks. Since then, we've expanded nationwide, continuing our mission of giving every American a voice and a vote.
Julie Oliver (Executive Director) is a healthcare finance expert who ran two aspirational, 100% PAC-free campaigns for the US House of Representatives in Texas' 25th congressional district. In addition to her new role as Executive Director of Register2Vote, Julie serves her community by volunteering weekly at a local food bank and in a volunteer board position for DivInc and has two decades of healthcare finance and tax law experience. She received an undergraduate degree in Accounting from UT Arlington and a law degree from UT School of Law, and lives in Austin with her husband, Matt, five cats, a dog, and their kids.
Mike Siegel (Political Director) has served the people for the last twenty-one years, first in the classroom as a public school teacher and teacher's union organizer, and more recently in the courtroom as a civil rights lawyer and city attorney for the City of Austin. Mike ran for Congress in 2018 and 2020, and built broad grassroots coalitions that made hundreds of thousands of voter contacts and helped change the political context in the Texas 10th Congressional District. He is excited to put his shoulder to the wheel in his new capacity as political director for Register2Vote, where he will work to cultivate alliances and work for progressive change across the state of Texas.
