ABOUT WHEN WE ALL VOTE AND MY SCHOOL VOTES
When We All Vote is a leading national, nonpartisan initiative on a mission to change the culture around voting and to increase participation in each and every election by helping to close the race and age gap. Created by Michelle Obama, When We All Vote brings together individuals, institutions, brands, and organizations to register new voters across the country and advance civic education for the entire family and voters of every age to build an informed and engaged electorate for today and generations to come.
My School Votes (MSV) builds student-led voter registration clubs in high schools across the country. We’ll give you the training and resources you need to ensure every eligible student in your school is registered and ready to vote each year, every year. Together, we will develop leadership skills, advocate for local issues, create exceptional voter registration campaigns, and launch young people into cycles of life-long civic engagement.
