Voter Campaign

In 2012 New Americans represented 11.8%  of all registered voters (source). Your vote can make a difference in the upcoming election! Even if you’re not eligible to vote you can still be heard by moving your friends and families to vote. Share this page with them so they can learn more.

The next election is on Tuesday, November 6th of 2018. Early voting is from October 22 – November 2. 

Join us for an early voting field trip on Friday, November 2nd! Sign up here!
