New Voters Project

The New Voters Project is a non-partisan effort that engages, educates, and inspires young voters to be active participants in the political process. As the history of our successes demonstrate, our peer-to-peer organizing model achieves measurable increases in voter registration and voter turnout rates while building the next generation of civic leaders. Over the past 35 years, we have helped to register more than 1.9 million young people and made millions of get-out-the-vote reminders.
