The U.S. Census Bureau found that only 45% of eligible voters aged 18-29 cast a ballot in the 2012 presidential election, that’s an almost 30% smaller turnout than those over the age of 65. One driving factor behind this low turnout is that millennials are moving around the country at greater rates than ever before, switching from state to state for college and jobs.
Following the voter registration laws in different states can be difficult to keep up with and many worry that changing state residency can affect their financial aid or parent’s ability to claim them on their taxes. To address these issues we created a voting guide for young voters to help them navigate the process. The guide includes:
- How to register to vote in all 50 states
- Breaking down the myths of voting in college
- An unbiased overview of the platform issues and where each party stands
Our goal is to spread the word and reach as many potential young voters as possible.
