New York Tech Votes

The COVID-19 pandemic. Climate change. Economic inequality, and the protests against police brutality and racial injustice. This election year is an important one for all us, but particularly for young people, whose future is on the line.

If you want to see real change happen in your communities and in our world, you need to show up at the ballot box.

Young voters are historically less likely than their older counterparts to turn out for elections. As a result, politicians tend to pay less attention to issues important to Millennials and Gen Z, including student debt, racial and environmental justice, and jobs programs.
