Every Vote Counts
Every Vote Counts is a grassroots movement from college chapters across the country…so far they are up working on 23 campuses.
It is a student-led, nonpartisan organization dedicated to increasing voter turnout nationwide and expanding voter access. They are trying to address voter apathy, voter suppression, and lack of voter access through three channels: voter engagement, legislative advocacy, and civic education.
I applaud the voices, protests and college activism across the country but what is mind-blowing is many of them do not make it to the polls. In 2014, more than 12 million young registered voters stayed home. It isn’t just about voter registration it is about getting out to VOTE!
We are all so insanely privileged to cast our vote. Every vote counts, every voice counts and if it didn’t they wouldn’t be attempting voter suppression in some states to make sure that minorities don’t get to vote.
Spread the word far and wide…get every person you know who is over 18 to register and complete the process by getting out to vote.
