2018 New Voters is excited to announce that we have partnered with the High School Democrats of America to identify leaders and create chapters of 2018NV across the country, to host successful registration drives. Since its official launch less than 24 hours ago, 30 new schools have reached out to us in 16 new states. These schools will be brought into our voter registration program that has been successfully used in our chapters across Pennsylvania, with access to scripts and individualized training from our Ambassadors. We are currently in discussions with Teenage Republicans and are optimistic that we can partner with them as well, in order to ensure a nonpartisan experience and option for people of all political ideologies that wish to exercise their voice.
“High School Democrats of America is ready and thrilled to register students across the country to vote. Spreading voter registration expertise-- connecting students experienced with voter registration to less experienced students-- will spread drives in schools big and small. Our concrete training plan, and wide-spread ranks of HSDA Ambassadors, will provide our ability to support every new and interested activist. Building a movement is the gathering of power; beyond partisan lines, voting is how we exercise that power.”
