Youth Voting Rights Advocacy

The Andrew Goodman Foundation Is Growing An Engaged Base Of Young People

All Americans have the right to an equal vote, not just in name, but in practice. We believe in a just democracy that is inclusive and equitable for all. This year is the 50th anniversary year of the 26th Amendment, which not only lowered the voting age to 18, but also prohibits age discrimination in voting. As student civic engagement has grown in the last few years, so have the arbitrary barriers that impede their ability to vote. When people can’t vote, voices aren’t heard, and that means our democracy isn’t working. Let’s take action to advocate for a democracy that works for all of us.

Action Spotlight

Young voters turned out in record numbers for the 2022 Midterm Elections. Their enthusiasm has been met across the country with an alarming number of introduced anti-voter bills that aim to restrict our freedom to vote. Young people deserve to make their voices heard without having to jump through hoops. That’s why passing the Freedom to Vote Act, which would establish federal voting standards and override state voting laws, is a top priority.  You can support the Freedom To Vote Act by contacting your elected officials today and urging them to support this landmark piece of legislation!
