ETV / About Us

Enlighten The Vote grew out of the historic "Godless Americans March on Washington" (GAMOW) held on November 2, 2002 in Washington, DC. On that memorable day, for the first time in history, the diverse community of Atheists, Freethinkers, Secular Humanists and other non-religious Americans gathered in our nation’s capitol to demonstrate to the world that we are free, proud and on the move.

According to Beliefnet.com, in the United States today, the secularists are made up of the large constituency of non-religious, Atheist and Agnostic voters, many of whom answer “None” to the question of church affiliation. In 2004, secular voters comprised 11% of the voting population and were 47% Democrats, 27% Independents and 26% Republicans. In that same year, Latinos comprised only 5% of voters. Jews were barely 3%. Black Protestants were 8%. Moderate Evangelicals were 9%. Catholics and Protestants were both 7%. As can be seen, the secularists as a voting block had the highest numbers of voters of all these groups. The only group that was larger than us was the Religious Right who were 15% of the voters in 2004.
