It’s 2021, and we do not believe in “off-years,” just odd ones. That’s why Alliance Network organizations have been hard at work getting young people #VoteReady this Civic Holiday season. If we want to grow young people’s political power, we must engage young voters year-round, every year.
Here is how our network is getting young people registered, educated, and ready to vote this year:
Asian Community Development Council
The Asian Community Development Council hosted a “Be the Goat, Register to Vote” event where people could register to vote and play with goats. ACDC also hosted virtual events on Animal Crossing and Pokemon Go to get folks educated about registering to vote.
It was impossible to miss Forward Montana on National Voter Registration Day as they registered over 200 young voters at taprooms, cafes, farmers markets, college campuses, and more in different cities across the state. They even hosted a trivia night for prizes.
Leaders Igniting Transformation
Leaders Igniting Transformation hosted four voter registration events on college campuses across Milwaukee and handed out voter swag.
Mississippi Votes took over campuses for a week of voter registration celebrations including voter registration drives and a panel about voting rights.
MOVE Texas hosted 50 voter registration events across the state, hosted a Live Stream event featuring local artists, and ended the night registering voters at a local dance club!
New Era Colorado
New Era Colorado hosted six voter registration drives on college campuses across the state and helped young people make plans to vote.
Our network continues to be innovative on the streets and online getting young people registered and ready to make their voices heard at the ballot box.
Now, it is your turn to get vote ready.
Do you know what’s on your ballot? Do you need to verify your voter registration? Do you have a plan to vote early? Whether you are voting by mail or voting in person, head to our #VoteReady hub to make your plan to vote early.
