CAMBRIDGE, MA – Activate Parents — Register PA Youth

March 16 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm EDT

Climate change, gun safety, racial justice, bodily autonomy, and economic opportunity are the top issues on young voters’ minds. But until they are registered, young people can’t turn out and use their voices at the ballot box. Help strengthen our democracy by ensuring Pennsylvania’s youngest voters have their say in 2024 and beyond.

Despite the trope about youth apathy, the fact is that barriers to registration are the #1 obstacle to youth voter turnout. Based on US Census data, in every presidential election going back to 2004, some 75% of young people who are registered to vote do turn out to vote. But approximately 4 million Americans turn 18 each year, and as of the 2022 midterms, only about 30% of them were registered to vote. The rate is likely lower today.

We will be mailing to adults with 16-18-year-olds in their households, and asking them to help get the eligible teens registered to vote.

This project is partnering with The Civics Center: a trusted national leader in registering young voters.

Voter Engagement Network materials are meant to be easy to process: they only require a short, handwritten message in a letter, inserting a scorecard, and stamping and addressing an envelope. A packet of 25 letters costs $23.50 (Venmo or check due by pickup time), including tax and postage.
