Who We Are

Civic Influencers is a nonpartisan nonprofit organization that operates hyper-locally, in targeted districts and states, to support a year-round movement amplifying the power of young voters (ages 18-29).

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

How Civic Influencers Is Turbocharging Student Voters

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.
