Outreach - Civic Learning Partnership - Court Outreach Programs - Civic Education Program - Student Voter Program


To increase the percentage of young voters by providing students with an understanding of the voting process and their constitutional right. To encourage disengaged students to recognize the importance of their vote and why it matters.

Program Description

The United States is a democracy, governed by the people, for the people, and cannot function without the voice of the people. Young voters represent a critical demographic that will one day run the country and become future lawmakers. It is vital that young Americans realize the importance of their own voices and the privilege one has in the right to vote.

The Student Voter Program will focus on the questions of why young Americans should vote and why their vote makes a difference. The program will encourage disengaged students to participate and understand that every vote makes a difference. By providing a better understanding of how government works, the ultimate goal will be to narrow the thought process of "Why vote?" to "Vote because you can."
