• Counting on young voters

    “The first time I actually got to vote was in 2008—for Barack Obama, of course. It was empowering and I was hooked, and from that experience I knew that I wanted other people getting involved too.

    “Growing up, my parents were always politically active. My dad would bring me into the voting booth with him as a child and I loved it.

    “Recently, we helped more than 40 high school students get registered to vote at a single event. Young Americans should be a huge voting block and I think when we share the President's message with them it really resonates because they know what happens in November will have a huge impact on their future.”
