Make Youth Votes Count Video Screen Shot
Blog Post

In 1971 the voting ages was lowered to 18. 50% of 18-24 years olds voted that next year. Fast forward to 2016…only 39% of 18-24 year olds voted while 70% of people over 60 years old voted. Why aren’t young people voting? Your voice matters – so make it count. It’s not just about who you want for president, it’s also about the issues you care about at the state and local level.
