We are building a coalition of youth-led and adult-led organizations who support lowering the vote and have signed on to the petition.

Suffrage State Leads

We are using the grassroots nationwide mobilization of young people to fight for the youth suffrage movement in their communities. These are student leaders committed to advocating for a lower voting age from where they live.
