An Inside Look

Welcome to NextGen Insider! NextGen America is working to turn out young voters (age 18-35) who are less than likely to vote to seize power and win elections for our progressive values. This is a by-the-numbers look at our 2019-2020 youth vote program activity across the country.

Dig in on everything NextGen did in our national program and in our states: Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Maine, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

Black & Latinx Youth Vote Organizing

  • We can't talk about mobilizing young people without BIPOC youth voters! Check out our Black youth vote organizing memos here and Latinx youth vote organizing memos here.

Research

  • We at NextGen wanted to know what issues truly mattered to the #youthvote. So, we did the research. Check out our findings here.
  • We debriefed our 2020 Voter File Analysis and what it means for the future of the youth vote in 2022. We shared the hard data on what happened, heard from Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, an amazing ally of the Youth Vote, and introduced Cristina Tzintzun Ramirez, our New Executive Director. Check out our presentation here.

Digital

  • NextGen's digital ad audience is 18-35 year olds in battleground states, with an emphasis on Black and Latinx youth, young people who are either first time voters or sporadic voters, and young people who are likely to support progressive policies.
  • Our presidential ads are being served in PA, FL, NC, AZ, MI, and WI on a wide range of digital platforms including Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, Pandora, connected TVs, Hulu, Vevo, as well as programmatic ad units. Our senate ads are running in ME, IA, NC, and AZ, on the same platforms. NextGen has been live with our digital media since June 1.
