Young people’s ability to swing elections and determine the course of our democracy is the greatest it has ever been. In 2020, 12 congressional seats were flipped with less than a fraction of local campus enrollment. Presidential, Senatorial, Gubernatorial and down ballot elections – all can be powered by young voters.

CIVIC INFLUENCERS is committed to making young voices and votes matter in our democracy.

We help young people design and implement strategies to increase their voting power.
Our Youth Democracy Index scores over 400 campuses (community colleges, trade schools and four year institutions), creates voter suppression heat maps directing corrective action, and supports Civic Influencers Action Plans to increase young voter registration and voter turnout.

We are optimistic about increasing youth voter engagement. The data demonstrates that there is a significant population of young people who not only are eager to make their voices heard, but live in places where their votes can have enormous impactif they are organized, motivated, and given the resources they need to succeed.

We believe that supporting America’s young people now will lead to a future where youth have a deciding voice in our democracy. In this 2022 Midterms Election Cycle, we are building momentum onto the 2024 Presidential Election. We have the potential to have record turnout among young people, as they learn about their power to swing elections and determine the future of our democracy, gender, LGBTQIA+ and racial equality, student debt relief, gun violence, climate change and more.

Op-Ed by Maxim Thorne: Don’t count out young voters today

In a campaign season that confounds many veteran political analysts, younger voters’ potentially decisive role is an underappreciated storyline as we reach the midterms’ homestretch. The organization I head, Civic Influencers, partners hyper-locally with campuses and community-based organizations with the goal to increase the voting rates and civic power of 18–29 year olds. Through this work, […]
