In the 2014 midterms, only 19.9% of 18-29-year-olds turned out to vote, the lowest turnout out in 40 years, however 2018 estimates saw the turnout of 18-29-year-olds jump to a historic high of 31%. We believe we can continue this improving trend by making the most fundamental tools of campus organizing free and available to all students across the country. (Credit Campus Vote Project)
