ABOUT CIVIC INFLUENCERS

Civic Influencers is a national nonpartisan project that helps administrators, faculty, staff and youth leaders at America’s colleges, universities and in communities engage youth in federal, state and local elections, working to promote a more equitable and inclusive democracy, and to overcome the ever-changing barriers to voting.  With support and guidance from our state organizers, our schools and communities help their youth to register, volunteer in campaigns, educate themselves on candidates and issues, navigate confusing voting laws, and turn out at the polls. In 2018 we helped a million more youth vote at the schools we engaged compared to 2104, then surmounted the COVID challenges of 2020 to work with 609 colleges with a total enrollment of 6.4 million youth, while sponsoring 352 Election Engagement Fellows.  See our Civic Influencers Relaunch Executive Summary for a sense of new, exciting things to come! Because individuals who vote when they’re young tend to continue, and because we help schools and communities deepen their electoral engagement each cycle, we generate both immediate and long-term impact.
