Rock the Vote's mission is to engage and build political power for young people in our country.
Rock the Vote is the largest non-profit and non-partisan organization in the United States driving the youth vote to the polls. Fusing pop culture, politics, and technology, Rock the Vote works to mobilize the millennial voting bloc and the youth vote, protect voting rights, and advocate for an electoral process and voting system that works for the 21st century electorate.DONATE
According to The Washington Post, Millennials account for about 25% of the voting-age population, while owning about 65% of student loans.
In other words, student debt is a major problem for young people and in part because of our generation, presidential hopefuls are taking notice.
Now we need to take the next step - register and turn out to vote!
