What we do

Mission & vision

18by Vote is a non-partisan youth-led organization that helps 16, 17, and 18-year-olds understand how, when, and why to vote.

Entirely youth-led, we envision an America where every young person has equitable access to civic participation.

2022 strategy

Youth Voter Registration + Education Across Six Key States.

We have chosen these states based on the YESI data from the CIRCLE Center at Tufts. To increase youth voter turnout and youth engagement, we are providing leadership training, resources, and payment to young people in these states to support their relational voter registration and education efforts.
