Before the 2018 general election, Inspire had grown its database to more than 60,000 young registered voters. This school year (2018-19), our goal is to grow that number to 100,000 and then to grow it again to exceed 200,000 by the time of the 2020 election! Your support and partnership will make this possible.
2019 is important. Not only are there municipal and state elections happening in most states, but 5 million young people are turning 18. Every day in high schools we are building a movement of young voters speaking up and preparing to vote.
By 2020, we will see an amplified representation of informed, confident, and empowered young voices participating in elections.
