Research shows that it is possible to create long-term change by encouraging life-long civic participation from young people. However, Americans under the age of 30 remain severely underrepresented in the electorate, and the disparities in youth voting grow even wider when looking at African-Americans, Latinos, and those with no college experience.
From the economy to the future of health care and our energy security, our elected officials are making decisions now that will affect today’s youth for decades to come. Young voters have a critical voice to lend. The League aims to empower young people to stand up and make the most of their right to vote.
