Arnold Schwarzenegger has offered up his own money to help improve voting access and reopen polling locations across the country.

In a series of tweets, the former California governor outlined his objectives.

"Today I sent a letter to nearly 6,000 elections officials and county commissioners in states formerly covered by Voting Rights Act Section 5 inviting them to apply for grants, funded by me, to reopen polling centers and improve voting access," wrote Schwarzenegger, a Republican.

"This country gave me everything, and I truly believe this could be one of the best investments I have ever made. All of us can do our part to give back and fight for equality.

"The grants are completely non-partisan and will be offered to those who demonstrate the greatest need and ability to close gaps in voting access. The process will be run through @GovArnoldUSC."

Schwarzenegger teased his idea earlier this month.
