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.

Our goal is to spread the word and reach as many potential young voters as possible and we hope you will join us to help your youngest citizens exercise their right to vote by sharing our guide with them.
