Vote16USA is a national campaign, organized by Generation Citizen, that supports efforts to extend voting rights to 16- and 17-year-olds on the local and state levels, helps start new local campaigns, and elevates the issue’s prominence on a national level.
Vote16USA welcomes Mussab Ali as its first-ever director to lead the country’s premier initiative dedicated to lowering the voting age to 16- and 17-year olds.
Hundreds of municipalities held elections for mayor, city council, and other local leaders on Tuesday. If you filled out a ballot, you might be one of the few. While some mayoral elections made history, many cities saw fewer than 30% of eligible residents fill out a ballot, continuing the long-established trend of low participation in the elections that are closest to home.
