Promote the Youth Vote

Looking for meaningful and effective ways to help elect local and national leaders who care about the environment and democracy?

Promote the Youth Vote is the EAN campaign to activate and encourage young voters.

  • Our first project is the Fall High School Voter Registration Drive in collaboration with The Civics Center. (See below for details.)
  • We welcome volunteers, inquirers to participate in educating ourselves, identifying candidates and opportunities for collaboration, and developing further opportunities for pragmatic and effective elder activism.

Fall High School Voter Registration Drive

You can volunteer with EAN this August to help The Civics Center, a national nonpartisan, nonprofit organization, to “make voter registration part of every American high school”.

How does it work?

EAN Elders from many states will help The Civics Center support voter registration drives in more high schools in a few key states this Fall.

  • EAN Elders connect with High Schools to identify staff/educators who can advise student-run drives.
  • The Civics Center provides High Schools with resources, virtual training for staff and students, and materials (such as handouts, posters and scripts) for voter registration drives.
  • EAN Elders spend ten hours in mid-August to late September phoning high schools from a list of public high schools provided by The Civics Center.

Why does it work?

Increasing Youth Voter Registration can provide the margin of victory in swing states. Every year, four million Americans turn 18 and become eligible to vote, yet less than half of them do, as they’re not registered in time. This demographic would surpass the margin of error in close elections, and they care deeply about climate change!
