About Energizing Young Voters
Energizing Young Voters, an initiative of the League of Women Voters, envisions a democracy where every person has the desire, the right, the knowledge, and the confidence to participate.
Vision – Every 18-29 year old in the United States will become a life-long voter and engaged citizen.
Mission – Every 18-29 year old will understand:
- Why it is important to vote
- Develop the intention to vote
- Be equipped to overcome all barriers to casting a ballot and participating in our democracy
- Understand how the political process brings about change
- Develop the confidence and skills needed to participate in the political process
- Be willing to take a stand and defend democracy
Join a diverse group by age (18-29), gender, ethnicity/race, and education type. Set direction and policy for Energizing Young Voters and make a difference in your community!
