Help Youth Vote in the 2021-2022 Election Cycle

The Civic Influencers model has a multiplier effect, getting campus administrators, student government and communities to invest funding and resources in getting their youth to register, volunteer in campaigns, navigate daunting new voter laws, educate themselves on candidates and issues, and turn out at the polls.

[Campus Elect] has been Miami Dade College’s most important partner in our nonpartisan voter engagement efforts. They provide stipends, training, and support to their [Civic Influencers], advice on putting together our election engagement website, and invaluable nonpartisan election and candidate guides. We love [Campus Elect] and want to continue to expand our partnership with them in the coming years.” – Josh Young, Civic Engagement Coordinator of Miami Dade College’s 165,000-student system

No “Off Year” in Youth Election Engagement

Sustaining youth voting from one election cycle to the next requires continual “care and feeding” of our campuses. There are typically concerning drops in youth voting after each Presidential election, so sustaining the hopeful 2018 and 2020 trends in youth voting will depend on what groups like Civic Influencers do to engage youth in the coming year. Civic Influencers helps develop the sustainable campus culture and institutional efforts to repeat or surpass recent higher turnout trends. What we do in 2021 will play a critical role in 2022 youth turnout for the midterm.

Youth election engagement also means involving youth beyond voting. 2021 is a critical year for youth to influence redistricting, advocate on election and voter suppression legislation, participate in local elections, develop media literacy skills, and practice civic dialogue across differences.
