we use DATA AND GAME-CHANGING STRATEGIES TO (EM)POWER YOUNG VOTERS.

Who We Are

Civic Influencers is a nonpartisan 501(c)(3) nonprofit that empowers young people to make their voices heard—and their votes count. We operate hyper-locally in targeted districts and states to support a year-round civic movement that amplifies the power of Gen Z voters, especially those at community colleges, minority-serving institutions (MSIs), as well as trade, technical, and vocational schools.

Each year, over 4 million 18-year-olds become eligible to vote. Our mission is to get them to the polls.

The power of young voters

In 2022, 34 U.S. House Races were decided by 1% or less. In some districts, that could be a few hundred votes. By mobilizing students in these tight-margin districts, we can help young people swing elections—and safeguard our democracy.
