The 2018 midterm election had record-setting youth turnout.
2020 will be the first presidential election in which young people could be the largest voting bloc.
Over 4 million people will turn 18 between now and the 2020 election. MTV's +1thevote is encouraging these and all potential first-time voters to register and vote next November with a year-long campaign focused on making voting more social, making voting easier and making voting part of the milestones already happening in their lives, from prom to graduation to birthdays.
It's a year-long party and +1thevote is inviting you to help us shape the future. Who's your +1?
We are partnering with the Alliance for Youth Organizing, Campus Vote Project, and Students Learn Students Vote to launch the first-ever national effort to create new polling sites on college campuses and in local communities to give young voters easier access to polling locations.
In partnership with When We All Vote, we are supporting dream proms for high schools across the country who are running innovative registration drives and who have the best ideas for making registration part of the big night.
We are committing to registering first-time voters waiting in lines at all MTV shows and events like Wild 'N Out and the VMAs, through a year-long partnership with Headcount.
