Ballot Bowl Registration

In the 2014 General Election, only 52% of eligible youth were registered to vote, which was more than 20 points below any other age group, and only 8% of eligible youth aged 18-24 voted.

In 2016, the Secretary of State observed an increase of online voter registrations from young voters between the ages of 17 - 25. Throughout 2016, the Secretary of State received 1,390,847 online registrations from this group. 

Though online voter registration has facilitated participation in the democratic process and numbers have increased, more can be done to engage our youth. The California Students Vote Project has the potential to dramatically increase voter engagement in upcoming elections.
