Did you know that nonprofit workers represent 10 percent of the work force? That’s a whole lot of voters who care about a whole lot of causes. According to the National Council of Nonprofits, “In 2010, nonprofits employed 13.7 million Americans, or about 10% of the work force. In fact, if the nonprofit sector were a country, it would have the seventh largest economy in the world. In 2010, 9.2% of all wages and salaries paid in the U.S. were from nonprofit organizations and the nonprofit sector represented 5.5% of the GDP in 2012.”

And just in case there is any remaining doubt, nonprofits can engage in advocacy and getting out the vote—for many nonprofits, it is part of their mission.
