VOTE!!! #RockTheVote @RocktheVote @WhenWeAllVote

This midterm election is very important for everyone, we can no longer be complacent. Every vote counts no matter who or what party you vote for.  Need help to find out where to vote or just have questions about voting in your local area...

If you have neighbors or family who have no way to get to the polls, then offer to take them! We all need to help each other out!

  • If you have any questions or issues at the polls, here's the Election Protection Hotline  #: 1-866-OUR-VOTE
What is Rock the Vote
Rock the Vote is a nonpartisan nonprofit dedicated to building the political power of young people.
In 1990, music executives founded Rock the Vote in response to censorship of hip-hop and rap artists. Our first partnership, with MTV, helped us to promote the message that “Censorship is Un-American” and to engage young people across the country in fighting back.
For over 25 years, Rock the Vote has revolutionized the way we use pop culture, music, art, and technology to engage young people in politics and build our collective power.
We’ve registered and turned out millions of young voters on campuses, in communities, and online. We’ve successfully fought for — and defended — voting rights and increased access to democracy. We’ve raised awareness and campaigned for issues that impact the lives of young people. We’ve pioneered innovative ways to make registration and voting work for our generation, and built open-source technology to empower other organizations, too.
Fun facts
- This is the largest, most diverse generation in our country’s history
- There are more than 70 million young eligible voters
- By 2020, young people will comprise nearly 40% of the electorate
- One-third of the Senate is up for election.
- ALL 435 House of Representative seats are up for election
- 36 states and two territories are holding elections for Governor
- 87 out of 99 state legislative chambers have elections
- 34 states currently have “trifectas.” This means that one political party holds the governorship, a majority of the state senate, and a majority in the state house.
-Issues such as criminal justice, gerrymandering, environment, minimum wage, women’s reproductive rights, labor laws, voting rights, school funding, sexual assault, animal racing, voter ID laws, and more are on many ballots in the form of ballot measures, referendums, and propositions.
