In 2018, NextGen America ran the largest youth vote program in American history across 11 battleground states. Our program registered over 257,000 young people to vote and reached over 7 million young people between 18 and 35 years old in person, online, through the mail, and over text. NextGen’s organizing efforts led to young people voting at record rates — flipping the House of Representatives and electing progressive champions at every level of government across the country.
Together, we showed the world just what can happen when young people take charge and speak out at the ballot box — and we’re not done yet. We are organizing day in and out to stand up to Donald Trump and the Republican Party’s corruption and bigotry and make progress on the issues facing our generation. The #youthvote is taking action in upcoming elections like our lives depend on it. Because they do.
